Pink 10-day box office collection: Amitabh Bachchan-starrer remains unstoppable on 2nd weekend

Pink continues performing strong at the Indian box office, taking its collection to approximately Rs 50 crore in 10 days.

Shoojit Sircar's Pink continued its winning streak at the box office over its 2nd week as well, taking its domestic collection to Rs 50 crore nett by the end of day 10.

The movie Pink has completed 10 days at the Indian box office but the film has maintained excellent pace in its business. The courtroom drama witnessed overwhelming earning over its second weekend and it appears to be unstoppable.

After earning Rs 35.91 crore nett by the end of its first week, Pink made wonderful collection on the weekends. The film collected Rs 3.15 crore on Friday and Rs 5.49 crore on Saturday, taking its collection to Rs 44.55 crore nett at the Indian box office. "#Pink has a REMARKABLE 74.29% growth on Sat... All set to cross 50 cr...[Week 2] Fri 3.15 cr, Sat 5.49 cr. Total 44.55 cr. India biz," tweeted Taran Adarsh.

Now early estimates suggest that Pink performed even better on Sunday and collected Rs 6 crore (approximately) on its 10th day, taking its total earning to over Rs 50 crore. The first week day-wise break up of Pink is – Friday Rs 4.32 crore, Saturday Rs 7.95 crore, Sunday Rs 9.54 crore, Monday Rs 3.78 crore, Tuesday Rs 3.51 crore, Wednesday Rs 3.87 crore and Thursday Rs 3.24 crore.

Starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu among others, Pink had started on a slow note but its box office collection picked up from day 2 itself. Blessed with positive reviews and strong word of mouth, the movie has kept the momentum up.

With no big releases, the film is likely to keep up the pace at the box office over the weekdays as well. However, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, which will be released on 30 September, is likely to affect its business.

Pink box office collection day 4: Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu film works wonders in India, abroad


Pink, a courtroom drama starring Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu showed a remarkable growth on Sunday. All the credit goes to a strong word of mouth publicity. Shoojit Sircar has yet again lifted a daily occurrence (which could happen to anyone) and elevated it to a cinematic glory. This grainy, gritty story about three young women trapped in a series of unfortunate incidents is compulsorily forcing people to watch the film in theatres.

And all the praise is translating to box office numbers too. Pink has so far collected Rs 21.51 crores in the domestic market.

The film is expected to do well on weekdays also.

The film witnessed an overall growth of 120.83% ( from Friday to Sunday). Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the box office collection of Pink on Twitter. He wrote, “#Pink Fri 4.32 cr, Sat 7.65 cr, Sun 9.54 cr. Total: ₹ 21.51 cr. India biz. EXCELLENT!” He also shared the percentage growth of film, ” #Pink witnesses MASSIVE JUMP on Sun… Sun biz is double of Fri… Sat growth [from Fri]: 77.08%… Sun growth [from Fri]: 120.83%… SUPER!.”

Taran also tweeted that the film is doing well abroad.

“#Pink – OVERSEAS: Went from strength to strength with each passing day. UAE & USA-Canada contributed maximum. Total: $ 978,744 [₹ 6.55 cr].”

Meanwhile, producer Shoojit Sircar got extremely emotional with the kind of appreciation his film was receiving and requested everyone not to ask about the box office collection of the film. Sircar, along with his entire team had a media interacted about the film on Monday (September 19).

“I am thankful to everyone who has liked the film.

We wanted people to see the film before and then talk to them so it would be more interesting to talk about it and because it’s a thriller and we couldn’t talk about it before.

“I cannot imagine the kind of reaction that we have got. One thing I would like to request everyone is that please don’t ask about the box office collection of this film,” Sircar said in an interview to IANS.

“This film is beyond box office collection for me. We don’t care how much the film has earned at the box office. The kind of response we have got so far is overwhelming,” he added.

Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan will be teaming up for Yash Raj Films' new project titled Thugs of Hindostan.

It is confirmed. Bollywood’s perfectionist Aamir Khan and the Shahenshah of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan, will be sharing screen together for the first time in the history of Hindi cinema. The two legendary actors will be teaming up for Yash Raj Films’ new project titled Thugs of Hindostan. The film will be directed by writer-director Vijay Krishna Acharya who has previously directed Dhoom 3 with Aamir. The movie is scheduled to release on Diwali next year. The leading lady of the film will be announced soon.

Aamir Khan maintained silence on the project all these days. And he confirmed the news on Twitter as he had told the IndianExpress.com earlier that he will let everyone know when it happens. Sharing his excitement about the project and the joy of working with his icon, he wrote, “Finally, the moment I’ve been waiting for has come… to work with my icon, Mr. Bachchan! Thanks Adi, Victor, for ‘Thugs of Hindostan’. I’m too thrilled to be working with the actor I have admired all of my life. Shoot starts early next year, and the release has been locked for Diwali 2018. Can’t wait to get started! Fingers crossed.”

While Aamir has worked with Acharya in Dhoom 3, Amitabh has never worked with the director before.

At present, Aamir Khan is busy with his next Dangal, which is based on wrestler Mahavir Phogat’s life and his struggles to make his daughters, Geeta and Babita, wrestlers. Dangal is all set to hit the theatres this Christmas. Big B is currently busy promoting Pink, also starring Taapsee Pannu, Angad Bedi, Kriti Kulhari, Piyush Mishra and Andrea Taring. Pink will release on September 16.

Mumbai: Amitabh Bachchan recently flew down south to shoot for a brand endorsement with some of South Indian cinema’s biggest names. The ‘Shamitabh’ actor donned a traditional ivory and gold mundu and spent the day with Prabhu, Vikram, Shiva, Nagarjuna and Manju Warrior.

Amitabh Bachchan posted on his Facebook page, “And today with the greats of Southern India .. all of them sons of The Greats in the early years of my career. What a privilege for me to be in the same frame .. A legacy of the past in my present today .. honoured and humbled by the respect they all give me ..” (sic)

 
  The actor even posted on Twitter, “With the greats of the Southern film Industry.. privileged honoured. Their Father’s Icons of my early years.” (sic)

Amitabh, who posts anecdotes frequently on his personal blog, shared his experience working with some of the biggest names in the Southern film industry. He said, “There is a certain respect and cultural heritage in them all. The Industry itself has been one that has functioned with utmost professionalism and discipline. Their modes of management and the contents of their creativity have always been ahead of the Industry in Mumbai.

Though now the gap is slowly getting closed and the content and ethics of the two Industries has been on par almost.”

"Regional cinema has elevated the local talents to immense heights and needs to be lauded for its enterprising efforts. Marathi cinema for example is coming out with some of the most prolific content in recent times. The artistry of their work, their story telling, their performances have all been exemplary," he added.

On the movie front, Amitabh has two releases lined up this year, Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Piku’ and Bejoy Nambiar’s ‘Wazir’.
