Sushant Singh Rajput can breathe much easier. His Kedarnath has managed to go past the lifetime numbers of his last release Raabta [Rs.25.67 crore] in one weekend flat. The film has collected Rs.27.35 crore after bringing in Rs.10.75 crore on Sunday. There was a steady rise in numbers over the weekend and that has helped the film score reasonably well so far.
If one leaves aside M.S. Dhoni - The Untold Story which was a different ballgame altogether since Dhoni was the star there, Kedarnath is the biggest weekend that Sushant Singh Rajput has seen ever since his debut. Shuddh Desi Romance had collected Rs.23.50 crore in its opening weekend while entire first week number of Kai Po Che was 26 crore. As for his other release Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, its lifetime number was Rs.27.05 crore.
The film's next major target would be the lifetime number of Shuddh Desi Romance which stood at Rs.48 crore. The film is in for a chance to actually do that since there are 10 more days available for it before Zero arrives. An average of Rs.2 crore per day too would bring this Abhishek Kapoor directed film closer to that mark.
Kedarnath could well turn out to be a reasonable success at the Box Office.
