Where Desi Boyz couldn’t do that well in front of The Dirty Picture, the latest release of last week Ladies V/s Ricky Bahl of Maneesh Sharma also couldn’t cast a spell on the audience as his previous film Band Bajaa Baraat did.
Vidya Balan must be proud to learn that her film has got one of the best opening weeks of all times. Her film has proved that even a woman centric film can reap lucrative rewards at the box office. The condition is just one – Entertainment! Entertainment! Entertainment!
The Dirty Picture has earned net 50 crore in its first week and the distributor share is approximately Rs. 27.50 crore. Not only this, this film has also secured its place the list of the top ten weeks of all times, fusing the Khan confederation of blockbusters like Bodyguard, Ra.One and 3 Idiots.
We guess that now we can call Vidya Balan ‘the female Khan’. Vidya has openly challenged the box office earnings of ruling Khans of the B town: Shahrukh, Salman and Aamir. Anushka’s and Ranveer’s ‘Ladies V/s Ricky Bahl’ has been overshadowed by Vidya’s film. Some multiplexes saw 50% and others 60% crowd for Anushka’s film. ‘Ladies V/s Ricky Bahl’ collected Rs. 4.75 crore on Friday, Rs. 5.50 crore on Saturday and Rs. 6-6.25 crore net approximately on Sunday.
Guess what now only Don 2 set to release on 23rd December can curb the success of Vidya’s film, else it seems hard to be hindered.
