Hits, Flops, Blockbusters, Disasters! Bollywood 2015

It’ll be interesting to see if Shah Rukh Khan’s Dilwale beats the 27.25 cr figure to take the highest opening non-holiday for 2015. It’ll be difficult because ‘Bajirao Mastani’ is releasing on the same day, which also happens to be a working day.

Highest Opening Weekend: Salman’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan also holds the record for the highest first week this year. The film collected Rs 102.6 crore in its first 3 days. PRDP has more than a good chance of surpassing this figure, even though Sunday doesn’t come in the first 3 days (PRDP releases on Thursday, 12th November).
The only other non-Salman film that has a chance is SRK’s Dilwale.

Highest First Week: It’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan again. The film collected Rs 184.65 cr in its first week. The outstanding word-of-mouth helped big time. Both PRDP and Dilwale will have to carry similar reports to challenge the first week total of the Kabir Khan directed film.


Highest Grosser: Will Bajrangi Bhaijaan (Rs 321 crore) remain the biggest grosser of 2015? Or will the two other obvious choices go on be the highest grosser of 2015. That’s the big question as we head towards two of the most important months of the year – with two major weekends in Diwali and Christmas.
