Looks like masala films is the trend of Bollywood presently. Rohit Shetty's direction Singham, starring Ajay Devgn, Kajal Aggarwal and Prakash Raj emerges as the second biggest opener of 2011, after Ready. Singham collects a massive amount of Rs 31.07 cr in its opening weekend, despite the fact that its multiplex release got affected on Friday.
The film's business was also hampered because of no-show in a Southern circuit. Karnataka generally, yields excellent revenue for Bollywood films. The opening weekend business was clearly divided, with single screens which has contributed to the hefty total. The business at plexes shot upwards on Saturday and Sunday. On Friday Singham collected 9.03 crores on Friday. On Saturday the business amounted to 9.67 crore. However, Sunday saw a whooping collection of 12.37 crore.
Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol, Katrina Kaif, Kalki, Naseeruddin Shah, Deepti Naval starring Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara continued to dominate the multiplexes in its second weekend, despite a strong opponent like Singham. In fact, at few of the urban centres the second weekend business of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara was at par or better than Singham. The single screens for the film did not perform well, however only on the basis of plexes alone the film is ranked as a hit.
Delhi Belly and Murder 2 are already declared as super hits.
