Wanted sees record breaking collections on Eid holiday

MUMBAI: Salman Khan’s Wanted has seen record breaking collections for a movie on a Monday. On the occasion of Eid (Monday), the movie did a net business of approximately Rs 72.5 million (Rs 7.25 crore).

Net collections of the movie on Tuesday stood in the range of Rs 55 million (Rs 5.50 crore) in India. According to this latest development, the movie’s net business by the end of Tuesday (five days) was Rs 302.5 million (Rs 30.25 crore).

Wanted has picked up tremendous pace in single screens across B and C centers on Monday and the audience continued to flock theaters on Tuesday too. The day after Eid is known as Bassi Eid, which is the day when the Muslim populace gets out of the house to wish each other. While the single screens have shown a huge jump for Wanted, the jump at multiplexes has not been as high.

While Businessofcinema.com had reported yesterday that the week 1 business of Wanted should be approximately Rs 300 million (Rs 30 crore), in the light of this development, Wanted’s net business in its first week has the potential to be in the range of Rs 350 – 360 million (Rs 35 – 36 crore).
