The opening was not up to the expectations after good review from the media but Wanted picked up in the weekend. The news has it that it earned about Rs.20 crore in the weekend.
Salman Khan must be heaving a huge sigh of relief, as Wanted has earned around Rs.19 crore in the domestic box-office itself. It is expected to earn about Rs.30 crore in its first week and recover its cost by the fourth week. The cost of production of the film is estimated to be around Rs.45 crore.
Some trade analyst are skeptic about the prospect of Wanted, as many big films are lined up for release in the coming Fridays. However, many are optimistic that the Id holiday would turn into a blessing for the film. Moreover, Salman's ardent fans are expected to watch it over and over again.
Let's hope Wanted end Salman's 'hit drought'!
