Band Baaja Baaraat Has Extraordinary Week 15
Band Baaja Baaraat has had an extraordinary fifteenth week in which it collected 40 lakhs net approx.
The fifteenth week collections are the third highest in the last ten years. Only two films have had a better week fifteen and they are Gadar in 2001 and Vivah in 2006 and the former is the biggest hit of the last decade whereas the latter is probably the biggest small budget hit of the last decade. This puts Band Baaja Baaraat in great company as far as sustaining business is concerned.
Gadar collected 75 lakhs nett approx in its 15th week while Vivah collected 45 lakhs nett approx. The only other recent films to have any worthwhile collections in week 15 was Lage Raho Munnabhai which collected around 5 lakhs nett and Taare Zameen Par with around 8 lakhs (both films were tax free).
Other blockbusters like Three Idiots, Dabangg, Ghajini, Golmaal 3 Rajneeti, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Dhoom 2, Om Shanti Om and Welcome have had negligible collections in week 15 if still running at the theatres.
