This week, it is a clash between titans at the Indian Box Office as Akshay Kumar and Imran Khan have locked the horns with Superstar Shahrukh Khan. Their first combo film Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara (OUATIMD), which hit the screens on August 15, has been facing a tough time from Chennai Express, yet it is enjoying good amount of collection by leading the race in the domestic market.
Released in 2,000+ screens on Thursday, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara opened to a very good response on the first day. Despite increasing its screen count to 2,500+, its business dipped considerably on Friday. But the movie picked up well on Saturday. It has collected approximately Rs 35 crore nett at the Indian Box Office in three days. Its breakup is Rs 11.25 cr on Thu, Rs 10.25 cr on Fri and Rs 13.5 cr on Sat.
Whereas Shahrukh Khan's last week release Chennai Express, which lost out many screens to the new release, witnessed more than 80% drop on its second Friday, when compared to its opening day collection. The movie showed improvements in its business on Saturday. It has collected approximately Rs 6 crores on Friday and Rs 8 crores on Saturday at the Indian Box Office, taking its nine-day-domestic total to Rs 170.70 crores nett.
