Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, which was much-hyped movie produced
by Karan Johar, had got a low start at the Indian Box Office and
its business had improved over the weekend with its collection
reaching Rs 21.25 crore nett. Whereas Matru Ki Bijlee Ka
Mandola, which released in 1,850 screens in the country, is
also much-talked about film, which was expected to beat the record
of Imran's last release with a big margin. The movie did it with
its opening weekend collection reaching Rs 22.42 crores at the
domestic Box Office.
The Karan Johar produced movie was released in 186 screens in
international markets - USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji.
Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu had received an impressive opening at
the Overseas Box Office with its first weekend collection Rs 5.78
crores nett. Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola was expected to
smash this record.
But the Imran Khan and Anushka starrer, which was released in
205 screens in countries like USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji
has failed to get a good opening at the overseas Box Office. The
movie has collected Rs 4.5 crores nett at international market in
the first weekend, thereby failing to beat the record of
Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu had collected Rs 26.63 crores nett at the worldwide Box Office in its opening weekend. Whereas Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola has raked in Rs 26.92 crores nett in the first weekend. However, Imran Khan's latest outing was expected to do more business than its current earning, but its collection was affected by big regional releases like Naayak, Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu (SVSC), Alex Pandian, Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya (KLTA) and Saadi Love Story.
