Are you a devoted Bollywood fan who wants to stay updated with latest records and box office collection? Check out the top 10 highest opening weekend grossers of 2017 list and find out which film stands tall at the Indian box office.
Baadshaho beat Badrinath Ki Dulhaniyan to gain the #8 spot and evicted Half Girlfriend from the list of Top 10 Highest Opening Weekend Grossers Of 2017.
2017 marked the release of many fantastic movies that took the box office by a storm. The year started with the simple romantic comedy titled as ‘Ok Jaanu’. It was not an excellent start for Bollywood. However, the high octane Shah Rukh Khan vs. Hrithik Roshan clash at the box office grabbed everyone’s attention. Thus, Raees was able to become the highest opening weekend grosser upon its release collecting around 93 crores in its five day weekend.
The year went ahead, and we had the mega release of Bahubali 2: The Conclusion that finally beat Raees after collecting mammoth 128 crores becoming the all-time highest opening weekend grosser. Since then, it has been at the top with no film even coming close to it.
Bahubali 2: The Conclusion remains at the top with no movie nowhere close to it. Raees still occupies the second spot. Salman Khan’s Tubelight released on the great Eid weekend however it failed even to beat Raees’ weekend. Though, Tubelight only had a three day weekend whereas Raees had a five day weekend. Shah Rukh Khan’s second release of the year failed to beat Raees as well. Will any upcoming movie beat Bahubali 2: The Conclusion to become the highest opening weekend grosser this year? The question stands still.
What is a weekend?
The first three days of the film after their release are generally accounted as the particular weekend of the movie. However, the weekend of the film should include the Saturday and Sunday collection of the movie as well right from its release. Thus, against the usual three day weekend, there are times when films have longer four/five day weekend at the Indian box office.
