Rowdy Rathore has set the box office on fire with collections of around 48 crore nett in its first weekend. It is the biggest opening weekend of the year and the biggest non holiday opening weekend of all time.
The film has done excellent business all over with places that did not take a bumper opening on Friday picking up on Saturday and growing further on Sunday.
The key was always going to be the North India markets as the film was a South remake retaining a similar look to the original film but these areas picked up on Saturday and consolidated further on Sunday something that films like Wanted and Singham failed to do.
The Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Bihar areas were phenomenal from day one and have come out with near record collections for first three days. Rowdy Rathore is sure to sustain well on Monday, just a question of how well. It also seems set to emerge the biggest hit of 2012 till date.Akshay Kumar Boxoffice Prabhu Deva Rowdy Rathore Sonakshi Sinha
