New Bollywood release Main Tera Hero (MTH), which has been directed by David Dhawan, has concluded the first weekend with a fantastic collection at the Indian Box Office. The Varun Dhawan, Ileana D'Cruz and Nargis Fakhri starrer has topped the domestic chart, slowing the business of old releases Ragini MMS 2 and Queen, which were leading the race at the ticket counters from the past few weeks.
Despite having a huge pre-release positive buzz, Main Tera Hero opened to an average response and registered 35% to 45% occupancy on Friday. Film goers, who watched the film on the first day gave it thumps up. A word of mouth took its business upwards over the weekend. It showed big leap on Saturday and Sunday. It has collected approximately Rs 24.42 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 6.60 cr on Fri, Rs 8.07 cr on Sat and Rs 9.75 cr on Sun.
Main Tera Hero is big budget movie, which has been produced with around Rs 40 crores. Trade experts opine that the movie has done brilliant collection in its opening weekend and it is likely to recover its production cost in the first week. However, Varun Dhawan's debut film Student of the Year, which also starred Siddharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt in the leads, had raked in Rs 31 crores nett at the Indian Box Office. His latest outing has failed to beat this record.
