Box Office Collection: ‘OMG Oh My God!’ Rules BO in Third Week Followed by ‘English Vinglish’

Paresh Rawal's satirical-comedy "OMG Oh My God!" continues to rule the domestic box office despite six new releases this week.
The movie starring Akshay Kumar and Rawal in the lead roles raked in approximately ₹1.90 crore in its third Friday taking the overall domestic collection to ₹61.9 crore.
"OMG Oh My God!", which was released on Sept 28, is still going stronger than Sridevi's comeback film "English Vinglish" and is giving tough competition to this week's six new releases which included "Aiyyaa", "Bhoot Returns", "Makkhi", "Chittagong", "Login" and "In The Name Of Tai".
"Holdover titles #OMG leads, while #EnglishVinglish follows next. Both continue to attract a good chunk of movie-going audience," trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted.
As all the six new releases opened to a poor response, "OMG Oh My God!" is expected to cross the ₹75 crore mark in its third week at the box office. In its first week the film earned ₹36.5 crore, while in the second week it collected ₹23.5 crore. Its second week collections were slightly affected due to "English Vinglish" but had picked up later.
This is Akshay Kumar's fourth release of the year. His first two films "Housefull 2" and "Rowdy Rathore" were declared super hits at the box office. Both the movies also managed to cross the ₹100 crore mark, but his third movie "Joker" failed to draw audiences and had tanked at the BO.
