8 Days Total Collection of Kahaani 2
Kahaani 2 had a decent growth over the weekend which gave it some sort of a platform to stay stable during the weekdays. However, there was a fall on Monday and after that too the collections didn’t quite keep that level. As a result, the Week One collections of the Sujoy Ghosh film have stayed just decent, what with Rs. 24.25 crore* coming in. Frankly, anything around Rs. 28-30 crore would have put the film in a much better situation but now, the film would face the challenge of Befikre in its second week in its pursuit of arriving at a fair lifetime total.
The film hasn’t garnered the kind of appreciation that Kahaani had enjoyed, though one still has to admit that when compared to some of the other sequels in the recent times, Kahaani 2 is still better. The Vidya Balan starrer has done at least better than the Week One of Kahaani (Rs. 22.75 crore) and that’s some consultation. That said, Kahaani had stayed really stable in weeks to follow due to fantastic word of mouth, which had resulted in lifetime collections touching Rs. 59 crore mark. Kahaani 2 would be fortunate to cross Rs. 35 crore though.
Now it has entered in the second week and due to new releases, started facing competition on box office. On Friday with considerable drop in its business, it added the amount of 0.65 crore* to its account. At the end of its 8th day, total collection of Kahaani 2 is recorded as 24.95 crores* on domestic box office. Being associated with the critically acclaimed 2012’s Kahaani, the latest one was released with decent buzz.
With mixed reviews of critics, it has witnessed average occupancy through out the week across India and registered slightly higher business than the original one. Kahaani 2 has got complete support of lead stars Vidya Balan & Arjun Rampal’s fans. Also audience has reacted in favor of it, even though this thriller does not seem to surpass the lifetime domestic total of Kahaani, that was 51.55 crores.
