Kahaani 2 had a decent growth over the weekend which gave it some sort of a platform to stay stable during the weekdays. However, there was a fall on Monday and after that too the collections didn’t quite keep that level. As a result, the Week One collections of the Sujoy Ghosh film have stayed just decent, what with Rs. 24.26 crore coming in. Frankly, anything around Rs. 28-30 crore would have put the film in a much better situation but now, the film would face the challenge of Befikre in its second week in its pursuit of arriving at a fair lifetime total.
The film hasn’t garnered the kind of appreciation that Kahaani had enjoyed, though one still has to admit that when compared to some of the other sequels in the recent times, Kahaani 2 is still better. The Vidya Balan starrer has done at least better than the Week One of Kahaani (Rs. 22.75 crore) and that’s some consultation. That said, Kahaani had stayed really stable in weeks to follow due to fantastic word of mouth, which had resulted in lifetime collections touching Rs. 59 crore mark. Kahaani 2 would be fortunate to cross Rs. 35 crore though.
Dear Zindagi has crossed the Rs. 60 crore mark in two weeks. The film had fair collections in the second week and while it is still playing in select theaters in the third week, the makers would be looking at the lifetime collections of Rs. 65-67 crore for the Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan starrer.
