In the first week Vidya Balan starrer The Dirty Picture has raked in Rs. 50 crore at the Indian box offices. It could be said that Vidya Balan has thrown an open challenge to the male dominated Bollywood industry.
So far the business of the movie is better than Desi Boyz which stars Akshay and John in the lead roles. Desi Boys was released across 2200 theaters but the film very difficulty managed to cross the 50 crore mark.
This film of Vidya Balan opened with a good box office response with a collection of 9.25 crore at the box office on the very first day. The weekend added to the business of the film. Followed by the Muharram holiday the film also had good collection on Monday and Tuesday even.
This medium budgeted female centric film has astonished the film pundits and gurus also. With the huge success of the film it could be foreseen that the industry will change the preconceived notions for better.
The reason for the film’s success might be the bold performance of Vidya, or the string script, or the theme! Well, keep speculating what went into the making this film a huge success, till then let Vidya have a roller coaster ride of this latest achievement.
