Ajay Devgn’s latest film Singham Returns has had a stupendous opening weekend. The Kareena Kapoor–Ajay Devgn-starrer averaged Rs. 77.64 crore within three days of its release.
The film recorded the fourth highest opening three days collections ever after Dhoom 3, Chennai Express and Kick. It was second best for 2014 after Kick.
As reported earlier by Businessofcinema.com, ‘Kick’ collected Rs 265 million (26.5 crore) nett on it’s opening day. While the second and the third day saw good growth by collecting Rs 270 million ( 27 crore) and Rs 310 million (31 crore)on Saturday and Sunday respectively.
Here are the opening weekend figures of Singham Returns at the Indian Box Office.

Sunday: Rs. 24.50

Singham Returns first weekend overseas collection: US $ 2.4 million (approx 14.5 crore)
Salman Khan’s Kick which is currently the highest grosser of 2014, reached the 100 crore figure in 5 days and it seems Singham Returns too is going the same way.
Released on over 3600 screens in India, Singham Returns has turned out to be second highest opening weekend grosser of the year after Kick.
Singham Returns may well emerge with the biggest opening day of the year beating the figures of Kick. In Mumbai it was always likely to be ahead of Kick as its a national holiday and the first Singham had huge appreciation in the circuit but North India is also putting up huge figures on the opening day which are similar to Kick.
Singham Returns might also cross Salman Khan‘s Kick in terms of Box Office collections. The Sajid Nadiadwala’s directorial debut earned Rs. 163 crore within a week and has done a business of above Rs. 220 crore in the domestic market.
The coming Friday will see the release of Mardaani and Mad About Dance.
