According to early estimate Gabbar Is Back will collect around 15 crore on Sunday.
Gabbar Is Back started on a very promising note on Sunday morning and it picked up rapidly almost at all centers.Single screens showed a massive growth while multiplexes also improved occupancies for the first time.
Now Gabbar Is Back will collect around 39.45 on its opening weekend which is decent considering the dull phase at the box office.But still a film like this should have collected 45 crore or more on its opening weekend.
The real problem for Gabbar Is Back was the tough competition by Marathi film Time Pass 2 & IPL matches which affected its business.If the film had a proper release date and promoted on a larger scale then the collections would be higher.
Gabbar Is Back now holds the record for highest opening weekend in 2015.The previous record was held by Akshay Kumar starrer Baby which collected 35.9 crore on its opening weekend.Interestingly Gabbar Is Back has become the fourth highest grossing film of 2015 in just three days of its release.
Now the real challenge for Gabbar Is Back will be to hold well on Monday.It should drop less than 50 % on Monday to have a chance at the box office.If teh movie sustained well on the weekdays then it will be a profitable venture for sure.
Note: These are early estimates.The collections will be updated after the official announcement.
