DANGAL (Hindi) had another strong week as it grossed 14.50 crore nett in its fourth week. The drop in the fourth week is 67% from the third week. The fourth week collections are the second highest of all time after the 15.95 crore nett of 3 IDIOTS in 2009. The film has managed to collect higher than both PK and BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN in the fourth week and it will be another good week if the film can beat those films again in the fifth week. PK had grossed 4.17 crore nett in its fifth week and BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN grossed 3.78 crore so they are not huge tasks especially as its an open week with no major release. It will be a shortened fifth week as KAABIL and RAEES are coming on Wednesday though DANGAL is doing most of its weekly business on Saturday and Sunday. The business of DANGAL (Hindi) till date is as follows.
First Week - 1,92,38,00,000
Second Week - 1,11,56,00,000
Third Week - 44,02,00,000
Fourth Week - 14,50,00,000 apprx
GRAND TOTAL - 3,62,46,00,000 apprx
The lifetime business of the film will probably fall a little short of 370 crore nett. The Tamil and Telugu versions have grossed a further 12.25 crore nett as they were not playing at the beginning of the week when the big South Indian films released. But some prints came into play as the week progressed allowing it to do around 35 lakh nett business.
