Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt's latest movie Raaz 3, the third
installment in Raaz series, has turned out to be the
biggest opener for Bhatts, Emraan Hashmi and Bipasha Basu
at the Box Office in India. The horror film has shattered the
records of Murder 2 and Jannat 2 at the domestic
collection centres in the first weekend.
Vishesh Films' Raaz 3, which collected Rs 58 lakhs in
the paid preview shows on Thursday evening, opened to a very good
response at the Box Office with its occupancy ranging between an
average of 75% to 85% at both single screens and multiplexes across
the country on its opening day. The Emraan-Bipasha starrer movie
collected Rs 10.47 crore nett on Friday. Bhatt's previous films had
collected maximum Rs 8.5 crores on the first day and this is the
highest figure for their movies so far.
Raaz 3 was expected to witness a big jump in its
business at the Box Office on Saturday. It leaped, but not upto the
expected level. It collected Rs 11.18 crores nett on the second
day. The movie surely saw the actual big leap in its collection on
Sunday. It raked Rs 13.79 crores nett on the third day taking its
first weekend collection to Rs 36.02 crores nett. Trade experts
call this an extra-ordinary performance.
However, Vishesh Films' previous big hit movies like Murder
2 and Jannat 2 had collected Rs 36.5 crores and Rs
35.55 crores, respectively, at the Box Office in the first week of
their releases. Now, its latest production Raaz 3 has
surpassed these collection marks in opening weekend itself. Will it
cross Rs 50 crore mark in the first week? Stay locked to this space
