James Cameron’s visual spectacle ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ is certainly breaking all box office records in India. After raking in moolah at the ticket counters and collecting Rs 192.75 crore in the first week, the film recorded a good second weekend with a collection of Rs 59.3 crore. With the latest numbers, the film has beaten the record of ‘Avenger: Endgame’’s Rs 52.55 crore on its second weekend.
Coming to its second Monday, ‘Avatar 2’ earned somewhere around Rs 12-13 crore, as per a report in Box Office India, which means the film might end up its second week in theatres with another Rs 100 crores. Reportedly, India has turned out to be the fourth largest market for ‘Avatar 2’ after China, South Korea and France.
Globally, ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ is already the fifth highest-grossing film of this year, and is only behind ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ and ‘The Batman’. In India, the film has turned out to be the third highest grosser after ‘KGF Chapter 2’ (Rs 434.70 crore) and ‘RRR’ (Rs 274.31 crore).
The film features Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang and Kate Winslet.
Now coming to Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh’s ‘Cirkus’, the film earned over Rs 20 crore in its opening weekend. After collecting Rs 2.50 crore on Monday, the film’s total now stands at about Rs 23 crore.
Jaipur based film distributor Raj Bansal called the film a ‘disaster’ on Twitter as he wrote, “On Monday Day4 #RohitShetty #RanveerSingh s #Cirkus collects Appox.,x ₹2.5Cr. Disaster.”
Rohit Shetty, known for his ensemble blockbusters, had clearly failed the audience and critics with his family entertainer. Ranveer too has witnessed another debacle after ‘’83’ and ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ too had failed at the box office.
Loosely adapted by William Shakespeare’s ‘The Comedy of Errors’, ‘Cirkus’ also stars Pooja Hegde, Jacqueline Fernandez, Johnny Lever, Varun Sharma, Mukesh Tiwari, Radhika Bangia, Vrajesh Hirjee, Murali Sharma and Anil Charanjeett, among others.
