FERRARI KI SAWAARI fared the best in Mumbai-Maharashtra belt and Delhi. The film collected Rs 20.96 cr nett in Week 1. The numbers are satisfactory, considering the cast of the film. Breakup:-
Friday 3.04 crore Saturday 4.50 crore Sunday 6.37 crore Monday 2 crore Tuesday 1.90 crore Wednesday 1.65 crore Thursday 1.50 crore
ROWDY RATHORE however remains unstoppable. Collected Rs 15.50 crore nett in Week 3, taking the 3-week total to Rs 130 crore nett. The film is now Bthe fourth highest grosser in India, after 3 IDIOTS, BODYGUARD and DABANGG. Blockbuster!
——————————- Lastly, SHANGHAI fell heavily. It collected approx Rs 4 crore nett in Week 2, taking the 2-week total to Rs 21.50 crore nett
Sharman-Boman starrer FERRARI KI SAWAARI started on a slow note, but grew with each passing day. Friday [Rs 3.04 crore] was decent, with the business picking up towards evening/night shows, while Saturday [4.50 crore] demonstrated that the word of mouth was extremely positive and hence the upward trend in business. But the biggest turnaround came on Sunday [Rs 6.37 crore], with metros and mini-metros giving the film the real push. The opening weekend total stands at Rs 13.91 crore nett, which, looking at its meager 20% to 30% start on Friday morning, is simply remarkable.
The film dropped a bit on Monday and collected 2 crores. The 4-day collection thus stands at 15.91 crore. The film will be a success if it doesn’t drop alarmingly on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
——————————- ROWDY RATHORE continued to perform extraordinarily. It seemed undeterred by the onslaught of new releases every week. The film collected Rs 9.65 crore in Weekend 3, taking the total to Rs 124.15 crore nett. Blockbuster! Breakup:- Friday 2.25 crore Saturday 2.90 crore Sunday 4.50 crore
The Monday collections were Rs 1.75 crore.
——————————- Lastly, SHANGHAI found it difficult to sustain in Weekend 2. Its performance, even at high-end multiplexes, which patronized the film in its opening weekend, was below the mark. The movie collected Rs 3 crore in Weekend 2, taking the 10-day total to Rs 20.50 cr nett. While the investment may be recovered due to the sale of Satellite rights, Music rights and More >
ROWDY RATHORE seems to be simply unstoppable. The film remained the first choice of moviegoers and collected a humungous Rs 35 crore nett in Week 2, taking the 2-week total to Rs 114.5 crore nett. Blockbuster. Breakup for Week 2:- Weekend: 22 crore and Weekdays: 13 crore.
The was rock steady on its third Friday as well as it collected around 2-2.25 crore nett. The release of SHANGHAI last week and FERRARI KI SAWAARI this week week is making no difference to the film at the box office. Despite being in its third week the film is doing great business in Gujarat, UP, CI, CP Berar, CI and Rajasthan.
The film is trending better than DABANGG at the box office, a film that had absolutely no competition for the first three weeks.
The third weekend may cross the 10 crore nett mark which will be only behind 3 IDIOTS and DABANGG for third weekend business.
The biggest difference between ROWDY RATHORE and the other big blockbusters is that they had no competition while ROWDY RATHORE is being hit for multiplex screen space every week. ————————————-
SHANGHAI, meanwhile, is way below the mark. The film witnessed some growth at high-end multiplexes of metros, but slided downwards as days progressed. Collected Rs 17.5 crore nett in Week 1. Breakup for Week 1:- Weekend: 12 crore and Weekdays: 5.5 crore.
Shanghai on its eighth day collected around 75 lakhs nett. The drops were at similar levels all across the country. It should get a bit of an upturn on Saturday and Sunday but as there is no More >
VIDHU VINOD CHOPRA IS BACK AFTER 3 IDIOTS!
Vidhu Vinod Chopra-produced 3 Idiots is easily one of the best films of all times. The trade and media were very curious to know what would be his next venture. Considering that 3 Idiots was the biggest blockbuster of 2009 and Indian Cinema (till date, no one has managed to break its record), VVC obviously was cautious when okaying the next project. And finally, he opted for Ferrari Ki Sawaari and what’s more, he didn’t cast any A-list actor. Instead, he signed the not-so-saleable-but-highly-talented Sharman Joshi, who did a great job in Chopra’s 3 Idiots.
Ferrari Ki Sawaari deals with cricket and the Ferrari and in a way is the instance of ‘entertaining as well as enlightening’ cinema that caught attention thanks to Rajkumar Hirani’s films (Munnabhai series and 3 Idiots). In fact, Rajkumar Hirani has also contributed the film by penning its dialogues. Sharman’s son is played by Ritwik Sahore while Sharman’s father is Boman Irani. The makers have used the same Ferrari that was gifted to Sachin Tendulkar by Michael Schumacher! Songs haven’t been appreciated much except Mala Jau De, which features superstar Vidya Balan.
Due to lack of big stars and not-so-exciting promos, Ferrari Ki Sawaari hasn’t generated considerable hype. Hence, the opening will be low but the film’s business should zoom from Saturday. Made on a modest budget, Ferrari Ki Sawaari should excel at the box office, provided it’s well made.

Despite doomsday predictions, with weekend collections of approximately Rs 12 crore, Dibakar Banerjee’s film is inching towards recovering its costs
Mehul S Thakkar (MUMBAI MIRROR; June 13, 2012)
Dibakar Banerjee’s Shanghai had critics going gaga over it. Though, trade pundits had hinted that the film may not get a blockbuster opening that is expected from an Emraan Hashmi venture, the weekend collection of approximately Rs 12 crore may force them to change their minds. In fact, trade analyst Amod Mehra predicted, “Shanghai will break even. That is for sure.”
However, according to the makers, the film has already recovered its cost. Distributor Rajesh Thadani, for one says it is the satellite rights that have helped its cause. “Though theatrical response to the film is not up to the mark, the satellite rights have helped it sail through,” said Thadani.
Mirror has learnt that the satellite rights of Shanghai have been sold for Rs 8 crore and the music rights for Rs 2.75 crore. Also, 20 per cent of theatrical rights have been sold for Rs 4 crore.
The producers claim that the film was made on a tight budget of Rs 19.5 crore. When asked how they managed to rope in Emraan Hashmi, Abhay Deol, Kalki Koechlin and Prosenjeet Chatterjee on such meager monies, producer Priya Sreedharan explained, “It is not right to compare a small movie to a big budget film. They have all done it for us for a good price. We are glad to have recovered costs.”

SHANGHAI opened to a poor response at multiplexes all over India with collections around the 25-30% mark. The collections where Emraan Hashmi films normally open well like CI, CP Berar and Nizam were also dull.
The high end multiplexes which might have opened well as that seems to be the likely target audience saw low collections. The DT and PVR chains in Delhi which mainly consist of premium multiplexes were only around 30%.
The expectations will not be much from single screens so the film will need good improvement throughout the day at multiplexes and Saturday being the make or break day.
