Aamir beats SRK at box office! Who’s the real King Khan?

aamirIt was not expected but the late release of MNIK in Maharashtra, Mumbai particularly, caused the movie a loss of approximately Rs 2.75 to 3 crore. And thus the movie failed to beat last year’s super hit 3 Idiots, starring Aamir Khan.As reported, the first weekend business of the Shahrukh Khan-starrer is expected to be Rs 29.50 crore approx in India while the movie collected Rs 25 crore from the abroad market resulting in the grand total of Rs 54.50 crore. Whereas the overall first weekend collection of ‘3 Idiots’ was about Rs 56 crore.

It grossed around Rs 37.50 crore approx in India and Rs 18.50 crore from overseas.The mammoth figures establish the two movies as top runners in the box office race. Though ‘MNIK’ is creating ripples at overseas BO, on the home front the audience response is not as devastating as it was during the time of ‘3 Idiots’. In fact, the collection of ‘My Name Is Khan’ has started showing a drip on single screens.Coming to Striker, the movie has managed to collect approx Rs 1.25 crore over the week, a flop. Ishqiya proved its mettle and did an average business in its second week.

The film’s total collection is approx Rs 21 crore, including second week’s collection. However, the movie’s business would undergo because of ‘My Name Is Khan’.This week’s most important release is the Tabu-starrer comedy Toh Baat Pakki.
