Dhawan's latest directorial venture Main Tera
Hero (MTH) has turned out to be another big
Bollywood money spinner of 2014. The Varun Dhawan, Ileana D'Cruz and
Nargis Fakhri starrer has done brilliant collection at the Indian
Box Office in the first week. The romantic action-comedy film,
which has been made on a big budget, has recovered 95% of its
production cost in just seven days.
Main Tera Hero is one of the most-hyped movies of the
year and it had huge amount of promotions prior its release. Its
promos had added lot of hype for the film. Released in large number
of screens, the film opened to an average response with its
occupancy ranging between 35% and 40%. But the movie showed good
growth on Saturday and Sunday, taking its collection upwards at the
domestic Box Office.
When compared to its opening day collection, Main Tera
Hero witnessed 37% dip on Monday. Its business went up on
Tuesday, but it had a steep fall on the following weekdays. It has
raked in Rs 22.73 crores in its first weekend and Rs 15.40 crores
on the weekdays. Its breakup is Rs 6.60 cr on Fri, Rs 8.03 cr on
Sat, Rs 8.10 cr on Sun, Rs 4.20 cr on Mon, Rs 4.80 cr on Tue, Rs
3.40 cr on Wed, Rs 3 cr on Thu.
Main Tera Hero, which has been made on a budget of Rs
40 crores, has collected Rs 38.13 crores nett at the Indian Box
Office in the first week. The film is expected to cross Rs 50 crore
in the domestic market in its second weekend. Amitabh Bachchan's
Bhootnath Returns has hit the screens today. It should be
seen whether it would slow down the collection of Main Tera
Hero in its second week.
