English Vinglish collected a poor 2 crore nett on day one as per early estimates. The collections at some multiplexes did improve in the evening and the film has good reports as far as multiplex audience is concerned but it remains to be seen how much the film can jump over the weekend.
Saturday is the all important day for the film as it must have a huge jump to have any chance at the box office. A 25-30% jump is a norm on Saturday for such films aimed at multiplexes but English Vinglish will have to show a much bigger jump as starting point is low. It will have to show better growth than last week’s release OMG! Oh My God though does not have a weekday holiday advantage like that film.
The film collected 45-50 lakhs nett in Delhi/UP, 20 lakhs nett in East Punjab and around 10 lakhs nett in Rajasthan.
Note – The 2 crore approx figure is for Hindi version and the film has also released in Telugu and Tamil although with limited prints.Boxoffice English Vinglish Gauri Shinde Sridevi
