Varun Dhawan’s latest cinematic outing Kalank released last week on Wednesday. Directed by Abhishek Varman the film which also featured a host of other names came with immense hype. Thanks to the film being one of the most talked about releases Kalank opened on a high note.
In this box office analysis we take a look at the opening weekend collections of Kalank while comparing the same to Varun Dhawan’s previous releases. Not surprisingly Kalank that enjoyed an extended five day opening weekend with a massive release across 4000 screens drew in Rs. 66.03 cr over its opening weekend to become Varun’s highest opening weekend grosser. In fact, the business of Kalank has managed to out beat Varun Dhawan’s previous releases like Dilwale that collected Rs. 65.09 cr, Judwaa 2 that collected Rs. 59.25 cr, ABCD 2 that collected Rs. 46.35 cr, Badrinath Ki Dulhania that collected Rs. 43.05 cr, Dishoom that collected Rs. 37.32 cr, Sui Dhaaga that collected Rs. 36.60 cr, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania that collected Rs. 33.74 cr, Student of the Year that collected Rs. 30 cr, Badlapur that collected Rs. 23.5 cr, Main Tera Hero that collected Rs. 22.73 cr, and October that collected Rs. 18.25 cr.
Currently, Kalank continues to run in theatres. However, the business of the film that has seen a stark decline in collections faces a rather daunting task in the coming days. With just four days till the release of Avengers: Endgame all that remains to be seen is whether Kalank manages to sustain business to become one of Varun’s highest opening week grossers.
