Akshay Kumar's recently released film Rowdy Rathore has once again topped the Box Office chart beating the Emraan Hashmi and Abhay Deol's new movie Shanghai in the second weekend. The Prabhu Deva directed action thriller has crossed the 100 crore mark at the collection centres in India.
Rowdy Rathore, which had collected Rs 79.52 crores nett in the first week, continued its rocking business at the Box Office in the second weekend too. The movie did very well in both single screens and multiplexes and added another whopping amount of Rs 22 crores nett to its ten days total collection Rs 101.5 crores nett. The breakup of its second weekend collection is 5.1 cr on Fri, 6.4 cr on Sat and 10.5 cr on Sun.
Whereas this week's new release Shanghai, which had created lots of curiosity among the viewers, opened to a dismal response at the Box Office on Friday. But the film showed decent growth at hi-end multiplexes on Sat and Sun. It has collected approximately Rs 12.10 crores nett in its first weekend. The breakup of its three days collection is 3.35 cr on Fri, 4.25 cr on Sat, 4.5 cr on Sun.
However, Shanghai is a big budget movie, which has been produced by Ajay Bijli, Dibakar Banerjee, Sanjeev K Bijli and Priya Sreedharan. According to trade analysts, the movie has already recovered its production cost from its music, satellite and distributions rights. But its overall business is below the mark.
