By Abid, Glamsham EditorialThough initially it appeared that Neeraj Pandey's Akshay Kumar starrer, SPECIAL 26, would lose out to Remo D'Souza's 3D dance extravaganza (featuring Prabhudheva), ABCD - ANY BODY CAN DANCE, but that did not quite happen.
As per the early reports, SPECIAL 26 picked up appreciably during the latter half of the first day itself, and saw a good growth on Saturday and Sunday, netting around 25 crore (to be validated) during the opening weekend.
On the other hand ABCD - ANY BODY CAN DANCE, which had embarked on a good to superb start saw a noticeable fall as the day progressed. But the film showed a turnaround on the next two days, thus netting a creditable 17 crore (to be validated) during the opening weekend.
As things stand, both SPECIAL 26 and ABCD - ANY BODY CAN DANCE are set to succeed, given the fact that the two films have quite reasonable associated costs.
