Kannada movie Bhajarangi starring Hattrick hero Shivaraj Kumar and Aindrita Ray in leads was doing a fantastic business at the Box Office in the first week. But the collection of the movie has considerably gone down in the second week. Trade experts from Sandalwood say that the movie collection is affected due to the release of Bollywood's much hyped movie Dhoom 3.
Bhajarangi has approximately collected Rs 8 crores nett at the Box Office in the first week. But the movie showed considerable amount of dip in its business on its eight day. When compared to its opening day collection, the business of the film has gone down by nearly 50% on its second Friday. As per early trends, it has raked in Rs 75. lakhs at the Box Office, taking its eight day total to Rs 8.75 crores act the Box Office.
However, on the first day Bhajarangi had approximately grossed Rs 2 crore at the Box Office collection. In the first weekend, the movie has reportedly grossed Rs 4 crores across the state. As there were no other releases in Kannada and big releases in other languages, Shivanna's 105th film was looting the Box Office.
Sources from Gandhinagara has quoted that Dhoom 3 has not affected Bhajarangi's collection to the expected level. As the movie is mainly released in maximum number of multiplex screens, Bhajarangi is still doing well in the normal theatres across the state. Moreover, Bhajarangi is doing a fantastic business in other parts of the state, which includes Mysore, Mandya, Bellary, Shimoga, Mangalore and other places.
