Two week-old Grand Masti has continued to keep the bells ringing at the Indian Box Office in the third week. The Vivek Oberoi, Ritesh Deshmukh and Aftab Shivdasani starrer has topped the domestic business chart, beating movies like Warning, Supermodel, Prague, Maazi, Phata Post Nikla Hero and The Lunchbox. Now, the adult comedy is fast heading towards Rs 100 crore mark.
Undeterred by Phata Post Nikla Hero and The Lunchbox, Grand Masti, which had collected Rs 69 crores in the first week, maintained rock-steady at the ticket counters. In the second week, the movie collected Rs 22.05 crores at the Indian Box Office, taking its 14-day domestic total to Rs 89.05 crores nett. Its breakup was Rs 3.40 cr on Fri, Rs 4.15 cr on Sat, Rs 5.10 cr on Sun, Rs 2.5 cr on Mon, Rs 2 cr on Tue, Rs 1.85 cr on Wed and Rs cr 1.60 on Thu.
Although four movies like Warning, Supermodel, Prague and Maazi hit the screens this weekend, Grand Masti remained unaffected by them. Instead, the Vivek Oberoi, Ritesh Deshmukh and Aftab Shivdasani starrer remained first choice for many audiences. The film has collected Rs 6.20 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the third weekend. Its 21-day domestic total stands at Rs 95.25 crores. Its breakup is Rs 1.45 cr on Fri, Rs 2.10 cr on Sat and Rs 2.65 cr on Sun.
So far, The Dirty Picture has been the highest grosser A-rated Hindi movie with its life-time collection crossing Rs 80 crores nett in the domestic market. Now, Grand Masti has smashed this record. Trade experts predict that this adult comedy will surpass Rs 100 crore mark in the third week. If it does so, it would be the first A-rated film to achieve this magical figure.
