Dishoom had a decent second week as it brought around 14 crore at the Box Office. While the second weekend saw a good hike with over 10 crore coming in, the weekdays ensured that the film came closer to the 70 crore mark. With the collections standing at 67.5 crore*, the film is a profitable affair for all involved.
With Rustom and Mohenjo Daro occupying over 90% of screens between them and several other Hollywood movies too running in a show or two, Dishoom is finding itself at a stage when it would do lesser than its potential. This has been the case with it right from the opening weekend when at least 5 crore were robbed from its total due to incessant rains in major part of the country.
It did benefit due to lack of competition in the second week but the loss of numbers in the first three days did hurt it. Now due to it being sandwiched between an Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan starrer, it has lost 3-4 crore more.
The film could have stretched to the 80 crore mark but would now settle for less. Still, it is an earner at the end of the day and while more could have been earned, it still ticks the box as one of the few successful films in 2016.
