Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Phantom had a decent first day at the Box Office. The film grossed Rs 8.20 crore net (82 million), as major cities managed to collect pretty well.
The collections in Mumbai and Delhi / UP were pretty solid with 2.75 crore and 1.75 crore nett respectively. Mysore also did well with around 50 lakhs nett.
The opening is better than Drishyam and has also edged past Baby which were similar type of films and both had limited music.
Phantom showed strong growth on Saturday with collections around 50% better than the previous day. It was a holiday for Raksha Bandhan which helped collections in some parts of the country. On second day the film collected Rs 12.70 (127 million) crore.
This would take the film to 20.90 crore net (209 million) in two days which are good figures especially as the start was not so strong.
Friday evening and Saturday has been helped by the holiday factor a little and the film is certain to go over 30 crore nett for the weekend, but it would be a good sign if the film can at least match the Saturday figure and finish up with a 32 crore nett weekend.
The other release Kaun Kitne Paani Mein opened to a dull response all over.
