Key Highlight
  • Animal and Sam Bahadur hold their ground in week 4 in India
  • Both Animal and Sam Bahadur look to have a higher week 5 than week 4
  • Animal and Sam Bahadur now play at a theatre near you

A day prior to the release of Animal and Sam Bahadur, Vicky Kaushal in an interaction, shared how his film was not going up Ranbir Kapoor's and that both of them were infact part of the same team, the Hindi Film Industry. It is now almost a month since both the films graced theatres and we are pleased to report that both the films have been accepted so wholeheartedly that they have continued to trend steadily even in the fourth week, with two new big releases Salaar and Dunki.

Animal And Sam Bahadur Hold Strong In Week 4 Despite New Releases Like Salaar And Dunki

Animal started with a bang and continued to do incredible numbers. After four weeks, it has netted over Rs 500 crores in all languages, in India. On the other hand, Sam Bahadur started modestly but the collections have creeped up to over Rs 80 crores as we speak. It has more than doubled its first week collections and that's the biggest victory for the war-epic on war-hero Sam Manekshaw. While Animal is an all time blockbuster, Sam Bahadur is a moderate success, and could have probably also been a hit had it released solo.

Animal And Sam Bahadur Look To Grow In Week 5 At The Indian Box Office

Dunki and Salaar did take away screens over the weekend but the two holdovers got back a substantial amount of screens from the weekdays and they will only increase over the new year weekend. In all likelihood, Animal and Sam Bahadur will grow in week 5. Post pandemic has shown that films that are accepted, will run long at the box office. Filmmakers need to keep making content that movie audiences love to watch and the results will be for the world to see.
