Bollywood box-office report of the week

By Abid, Glamsham Editorial

This Friday will see the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Deepika-Ranveer starrer, RAM-LEELA, and Kangna Ranaut's RAJJO. Given the buzz and feedback from the trade and distribution pundits as well as the paying audience, the battle will be won comprehensibly by SLB's RAM-LEELA. The film is expected to embark on a good start (extraordinary in Maharashtra and Gujarat) in India and the overseas. The film though will have to content with the still hot Hrithik Roshan starrer KRRISH 3.

Last week saw the release of RGV's SATYA 2, which was touted as the filmmaker's comeback vehicle. Unfortunately the film turned out to be a damp squib, very much like RGV's last few ventures.

After a creditable opening weekend (52-53 crore) during the dull pre-Diwali days, Hrithik Roshan's KRRISH 3 came into its own with a record breaking Monday due to heavy patronization from the family audience.

Netting 126 crore during the opening week, KRRISH 3 is a blockbuster. The dubbed version(s) have added another 8 crores. KRRISH 3 has also impressed in the overseas grossing $7m with and#163;717,929 from UK and $1,870,000 from the US till the second weekend (8-10 November).

Concluding with Manish Paul's MICKEY VIRUS, the film added another 70 lakhs thus netting 8.20 crore in two weeks from India and is an average fare.
