MUMBAI: Despite of the ‘Bharat bandh’ on Monday, Dharma Productions’ I Hate Luv Storys stood steady at the box office. The movie, which did a net business of Rs 220 million at the box office in its opening weekend, collected approximately Rs 27.50 million (Rs 2.75 crore) nett on Monday. On Tuesday, the movie collected approximately Rs 26 million (Rs 2.60 crore).
However, it must be kept in mind that the theaters had shutters down for most part of Monday and resumed playing movies only in the evening shows. If the bandh had not been there, the movie’s performance would have been much better.
The five days net collections of I Hate Luv Storys now stand at approximately Rs 273.50 million (Rs 27.35 crore).
By the end of the week, I Hate Luv Storys’ net collections are estimated to be in the range of Rs 310 – 320 million (Rs 31 – 32 crore).
