Key Highlight
  • Maidaan emerges most preferred film in its second weekend
  • Bade Miyan Chote Miyan goes down
  • Maidaan and Bade Miyan Chote Miyan play at a theatre near you.

It's no new news that both Maidaan, directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma and starring Ajay Devgn, Priyamani and Gajraj Rao, and Bade Miyan Chote Miyan directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and starring Akshay Kumar, Tiger Shroff, Alaya F, Sonakshi Sinha, Manushi Chhillar and Prithviraj Sukumaran have fared really poorly at the box office. Maidaan netted around Rs 27.50 crores in its extended first week while Bade Miyan Chote Miyan netted Rs 47.50 crores. The second weekend saw a little change in the positions of both films, the change favouring the former.

After A Dismal First Week, Maidaan Starts Netting Higher Than Bade Miyan Chote Miyan

Maidaan emerged as the most preferred Hindi film in India in its second weekend as it netted around Rs 7.25 crores and the Ajay Devgn movie will now nett over Rs 10 crores in the second week, meaning a drop of around 60 percent from the extended first week and a drop of under 50 percent from conventional week 1. Bade Miyan Chote Miyan dropped to the second position, netting slightly under Rs 5 crores in its second weekend. This indicates that the Akshay Kumar-Tiger Shroff film will struggle to get to even Rs 60 crores nett despite no significant new competition in theatres for a few more weeks. In terms of drop percentage, the second week is likely to be lower than the extended first week by around 85 percent.



Maidaan Expectations

Maidaan's hold means that it may continue to stick around for a few more weeks and get to Rs 45 crores nett or maybe even Rs 50 crores. The cumulative nett India collections of 2 Eid releases may touch Rs 100 crores provided Maidaan holds for the next couple of weeks. The combined worldwide gross collections may end up around Rs 160-165 crores. Makers of both the films gave their viewers, incentives over the first week and without the incentives, the collections would have been even lower.
