It was a largely ordinary day at the Box Office as the combined collections of three films in the running, Sanju, Ant-Man And The Wasp, Soorma, stayed under the Rs. 10 crore mark.
After seeing some good collections on Sunday [Rs. 9.29 crore], Sanju was back to seeing the kind of collections that it was expected to on the weekdays. The film brought in Rs. 2.50 crore on its third Monday and with this the overall total now is Rs. 319.32 crore. The film is expected to stay over Rs. 2 crore for rest of the weekdays and that would takes its numbers past the Rs. 325 crore after the third week. All Time Blockbuster.
Ant-Man And The Wasp, after seeing a good opening of Rs. 5.50 crore on Friday, was flat on Sunday [Rs. 6.80 crore] and that was pretty much an indication for things to follow. The film collected Rs. 3 crore* on Monday and with that the total has reached Rs. 22.30 crore*. Though at one point in time a lifetime of around Rs. 50 crore had seemed possible, it won't be the case now as the film will possibly settle around Rs. 40 crore.
Soorma needed a good jump on Sunday so that it stood some kind of a chance for being a good success. However since that didn't turn out to be the case [after Saturday jump of Rs. 5.05 crore, film stayed flat with Rs. 5.60 crore on Sunday], the picture was clear. The film collected Rs. 2 crore on Monday and that has just about stretched the total to Rs. 15.85 crore. One waits to see if a Rs. 30 crore lifetime is a possibility now.
