Deadpool 2 is now on its way out. After a first week number of 48.18 crore which was fine but below expectations, there weren’t many hopes from the second weekend. After all, the collections were anyways going down and sustenance was always going to be a challenge. Moreover, Parmanu – The Story Of Pokhran did well over the weekend whereas Raazi stayed on to be stable as well due to which Deadpool 2 turned out to be a distant third choice.
This was seen in the collections over the second weekend which just about hit the 6 crore* mark. That now pretty much decides that it would be curtains for the film after the second week is through since theaters would soon be making way for two new releases – Veere Di Wedding and Bhavesh Joshi Superhero. As for the Hollywood superhero film, it currently stands at 54 crore* and should wrap up with a lifetime total of 60 crore – average.
102 Not Out added a bit more to its overall numbers in the fourth weekend. 1.25 crore* more came in during the last three days and as a result the film now stands at 49.50 crore*. Some sort of footfalls would continue to trickle in for next four days and that would help this Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor starrer stay in contention. Post that it would be time for the film to arrive on digital and satellite medium, where it should enjoy a good run for itself – Hit.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
Note: All collections as per production and distribution sources
