Box Office: Second Day Collection of Pink
The Amitabh Bachchan-starrer movie, Pink, which opened on a grand note on 16 September, witnessed a massive growth in its collection on its second day. As per early estimates, Pink has collected approximately Rs 6 crore at the domestic market on its second day, thereby taking its two-day total to Rs 10.32 crore net. However, it has failed to surpass the day 2 Indian box office collection record of Big B’s Wazir. Wazir, which also starred Farhan Akhtar, had collected Rs 7.16 crore on its second day.
The Soojit Sircar-directed film has received overwhelming reviews from critics and viewers alike. Made on a budget of approximately Rs 26 crore, the film is expected to recover its total cost within a week. By the end of its first weekend, Pink is expected to witness further growth in its domestic box office collection. The positive word-of-mouth publicity around the film is expected to help increase the footfall in theatres. Further, since Raaz Reboot, which was also released on the same day, has received negative reviews, movie-goers may opt for Pink instead of the Emraan Hashmi-starrer.
Although the box office collection of Pink on the opening day was lower than Raaz Reboot, the former has the potential to outdo the domestic box office collection of Raaz Reboot by the end of its first week. Directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury and produced by Soojit, Pink is a courtroom drama-thriller. It is the story of three independent girls who get into trouble during a party. Bachchan plays the role of a lawyer, while others who play key roles in the film are Tapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang, Piyush Mishra, Angad Bedi and Dhritiman Chatterjee.
For Amitabh Bachchan, this is a good success in the making after delivering two back to back disappointments in TE3N and Wazir. Incidentally, his last big success wasPiku and that film too had been made by Shoojit Sircar. For the leading lady Taapsee Pannu, this is now her third Bollywood success in a row after Chashme Baddoor  and Baby. On the other hand Kirti Kulhari has got a good push in her career, which was long awaited after Shaitan . This courtroom drama is directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury and it also features Angad Bedi and Piyush Mishra in key roles.
