Akshay Kumar's Rowdy Rathore has continued its successful
run at the Box Office in the second weekend too. The
Prabhu Deva directed action flick has once again topped the Box
Office chart by beating Emraan Hashmi and Abhay Deol starrer movie
Shanghai at the collection centres
across the globe. It has also broken the second week collection
record of Agneepath.
Trade analyst were thinking that the business of Rowdy
Rathore will be affected by Shanghai. But it was vice
versa. It seemed to be unstoppable at the Box Office as it remained
the first choice of filmgoers. It raked in Rs 22 crores nett in the
second weekend. It fared well in the weekdays too and collected
another Rs 13 crores nett.
Rowdy Rathore, which had grossed Rs 79.52 crores nett
in week one, had failed to break the first week collection record
of Agneepath, which had collected Rs 85.88 crores in the
eight-days extended week. Agneepath had added Rs 23.12
crores to its two-week total to Rs 109 crore. Whereas, Rowdy
Rathore has broken its second week record by adding Rs 35
crores nett to its total collection Rs 114.5 crores nett.
However, despite getting flowery reviews from critics,
Shanghai failed to get a big opening at the Box Office.
Although the film witnessed some growth at hi-end multiplexes of
metros, its collection could not go beyond Rs 12 crores nett in the
first weekend. But the movie slid downwards in the weekdays. It
added Rs 5.5 crores to its first week's total
