After earning a very good number of Rs20.50 crore on its opening day on Friday, the box office collections of Rohit Shetty’s Simmba were expected to grow over the weekend. That is exactly what has happened with the Ranveer Singh led film.
The film earned Rs23.75 crore and Rs31.50 crore on Saturday and Sunday respectively, as per figures shared by BoxOfficeIndia.com. The film’s Saturday number might not be big, but it showed a remarkable jump on Sunday.
The grand total of the film, which also features Sara Ali Khan, Sonu Sood, Ashutosh Rana and Siddharth Jadhav, currently stands at an impressive Rs75.75 crore. This is the fourth best opening weekend number of the year after Sanju, Race 3 and Thugs Of Hindostan.
This is also the best ever weekend collections for a Ranveer Singh film. His second-best number of Rs75.05 crore also came this year in the form of Sanjay Leela Bhanasali’s Padmaavat, which also featured Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor.
As per trade sources, Simmba is made at a budget of Rs100 crore approx. Hence, it needs to hold well in the weekdays starting today. The good news is that the new year holiday season is on. In addition, no prominent film is scheduled to release this week.
This ought to allow the film to gather steady collections to tide into the new year.
