After a weekend of Rs 6.42 crores at the box office over the weekend, Mrs. Chatterjee vs Norway needed to ensure that its Monday numbers were not too far away from that of Friday (Rs 1.27 crores). After all, for a core content based film like this, it’s understandable if the start is on the lower side but then as long as there is growth over the weekend and then good sustenance during the weekdays, which bring in as much as the first three days, then one can expect the film to keep playing for a while.
Well, looks like this would indeed be the case for this Rani Mukerji starrer as Rs 91 lakh more came on Monday. Yes, a higher number would have made the film’s long term prospects look even better but then at least it hasn’t got into that 40%-50% drop zone which would have resulted in curtains for it after the first week itself. So far, the film has collected Rs 7.33 crores and similar numbers right through the close of week will take it past the Rs 10 cross mark.
Meanwhile, Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar is chugging along and is collecting more than the combined total of all the other films in the running. On Monday, it brought in Rs 2.25 crores* more which isn’t too much of a drop from Friday numbers of Rs 3.51 crores. As long as it stays over the Rs 2 crores mark right till Thursday, it would be a decent enough run for the Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer. The film has now reached Rs 111.64 crores* and in the process become director Luv Ranjan biggest grosser ever by crossing Rs 109 crores lifetime of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
