Anjaana Anjaani had a good weekend of 24 crore nett as per early estimates. The film had a troubled weekend in that Friday was affected with bandhs and release disputes and then Sunday it took a hit in its best area Delhi NCR due to the commonwealth games.The film lost around 1.50 crore nett due to release problems and commonwealth games.
The film will be a big earner for makers as costs are pretty low and the film has earned well from satellite and music while overseas has also contributed well. The Indian theatrical business will depend on what happens on the weekdays at the multiplexes. Mumbai, Delhi/UP and East Punjab have fared best. In the South it had huge competition in the form of Endhiran and the CP CI Rajasthan belt suffered from release problems.
The daily breakdowns were 7.25 crore for Friday, 8.75 crore for Saturday and 8 crore nett for Sunday. Sunday suffered mainly as collections in Delhi/UP and East Punjab dropped due to the commonwealth games while rest of the country was slightly lower but that is normal after a holiday.
