Bollywood movie Lootera, which has turned out to be the biggest opener for Ranveer Singh, has topped the collection chart, overtaking Sanjay Dutt starrer Policegiri at the Indian Box Office in the first week. The movie has smashed the first week business record of Ranveer's previous outing Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, which was the biggest success in his career.
Having debuted with an average occupancy, Lootera showed growth in its collection on Saturday and Sunday. The film, which was raved by film critics, did better business in multiplexes, when compared to single screens. It collected Rs 18.50 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 5.15 cr on Fri, Rs 6 cr on Sat and Rs 7.35 cr on Sun.
When compared to its opening day collection, Lootera witnessed more than 50% dip in its business on Monday and it continued to drop throughout the week. On weekdays, the Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha starrer has collected Rs 8.30 crores at the Indian Box Office, taking its first week total to Rs 26.80 crores nett. Its breakup is Rs 2.7 cr on Mon, Rs 2.1 cr on Tue, Rs 1.9 cr on Wed and Rs 1.6 cr on Thu.
Ranveer Singh's last release Ladies vs Ricky Bahl starring Anushka Sharma and Parineeti Chopra alongside him, had collected Rs 23 crores nett at the domestic Box Office in first week. Whereas his latest outing Lootera has shattered this record, by surpassing Rs 25 crore mark in seven days.
