Endhiran (Robot), the sci-fi melodrama vs. Anjaana Anjaani, the total rom- com, has both done great business in the first weekend, enabling the filmmakers of both the sleek flicks to go out with broad smiling faces all the way to the bank.
Reports doing the rounds say that Endhiran or Robot, has done extremely good business in the southern sector with an amazing collection of Rs.100 crores. But, in the Hindi version, it did not do much well, but still, it did rake in Rs.7 crore.
Anjaana Anjaani, on the other hand, has done considerably well taking into account the postponement of the project and the CWG games going on in full swing! However, its great collections did not allow the film makers to feel low; rather they are an extremely happy lot!
Amazingly, Anjaana Anjaani, has been able to collect an astounding amount of Rs. 24 crores, and also has reportedly, earned quite an astounding figure from the satellite rights.
Anjaana Anjaani, the flick which is being basically considered as a teen film, has managed to entice the audiences for its totally new approach, contemporary settings, stars like Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra enacting believable characters with problems similar to the ones faced by the contemporary youth. Thus, it has not lost out to the high budget flick Endhiran. Rather, it is giving it a tough competition!
The Friday collections of Anjaana Anjaani was 7.25, Saturday was 8.25, and Sunday was 8 crores, according to reports in several tabloids. All in all, it’s a win -win situation for both the film makers!
