Good start for BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG, LOOTERA stumbles!

By Abid, Glamsham Editorial

This Friday's major release, UTV Motion Pictures' Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directed, BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG, managed quite a good start. While the city multiplexes opened with 45-50 percent, the mass belts and single screens were lower at around 30 percent. The best collections for BMB came from the northern belt while Mumbai-Maharashtra was not at the same level.

Given the by and large positive reviews and encouraging word-of-mouth, the Farhan Akhtar starrer saw a good pick up during the latter shows and is expected to grow substantially during the weekend.

Meanwhile, last Friday's Vikramaditya Motwane directed Ranveer, Sonakshi and Adil starrer, LOOTERA, could not capitalize on a healthy weekend and witnessed somewhat ordinary collections during the weekdays. The film has netted around 24-25 crore (to be validated) during the opening week from India and has a tough battle ahead.
