Former girlfriend Deepika Padukone seems to be the lucky charm for Ranbir Kapoor. Ranbir, who had a series of flops on the box office for the last two years (“Besharam”, “Roy” and “Bombay Velvet”), is back in the numbers' game with “Tamasha” earning Rs 38.03 crore over the first weekend. Ranbir's last hit was “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” (2013) opposite Deepika.
With an estimated budget of Rs 60 crore and no big ticket releases till December 18 (when Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol-starrer “Dilwale” and Deepika -Ranveer -Priyanka-starrer “Bajirao Mastani” hit theatres), “Tamasha” is set for an impressive collection at the ticket windows.
The film saw a steady rise in the box office collections over the weekend: While opening day earnings amounted to Rs.10.87 crore, it collected Rs.13.17 crore on day two, a statement from the filmmakers said. The film further saw a rise on Sunday, collecting Rs 14.12 crore.
Apart from the domestic earnings, the estimated overseas gross box office collection figure for “Tamasha” was Rs 23 crore till Sunday night, according to a tweet by trade analyst Taran Adarsh. The film released in India across 2100 screens and had 571 screens overseas.
The Imtiaz Ali directorial is presented by UTV Motion pictures and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. The film released on November 27.
