Barfi!India's official entry for Oscar
On its second Friday the romantic comedy collected ₹41 million and raked in ₹60 million the following day, taking the overall total to ₹687 million. The movie is expected to collect extraordinary figures on Sunday.
"The drop was 60% but for a multiplex movie like Barfi! this number on a 2nd Friday is in no way less than spectacular," koimoi.com reported. The movie is also doing well at the overseas box office and collected ₹130 million, according to the website.
The romantic comedy movie is expected to earn around ₹120 million in its second weekend. In jus two days (Friday and Saturday) the film collected ₹101 million and requires just ₹19 million to cross that ₹120 million mark.
The movie is not affected by Madhur Bhandarkar's much-hyped movie "Heroine" which opened to mixed reviews.
The film starring Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Randeep Hodda has collected ₹75 million on the opening day and ₹85 million on Saturday, taking the two-day total earnings to ₹160 million.
Meanwhile, "Barfi" has been selected as India's official entry to the Academy Awards 2013 in the foreign film category.
