‘Half Girlfriend’, ‘Hindi Medium’ had decent first week, while ‘Baahubali 2’ continues its golden run

Last week, two movies released, ‘Half Girlfriend‘ and ‘Hindi Medium’. Both are diametrically different in terms of their content and ‘Half Girlfriend’ was mounted on a wider budget as compared to ‘Hindi Medium’. The movie has done a decent first week collection of Rs 47 crore nett, but that’s majorly due to a good first weekend as the weekdays weren’t upto the mark. So, Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor-starrer ‘Half Girlfriend’ has managed a decent first week.

On the other hand, Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar-starrer ‘Hindi Medium’ which started off on a poor note, picked up over the weekend and was pretty good on the weekdays too. The movie has done a business of Rs 23 crore nett in the first week and considering the fact that it had lesser promotions and isn’t mounted on a hefty budget, it’s quite a good figure. The numbers may be less than those of ‘Half Girlfriend’, but it could possibly cross the collection of ‘Half Girlfriend’ in the second week. The movie has found a strong connect in the metros. Also, the tax exemption in Maharashtra has really helped in Mumbai, Pune. (Also Read: Salman Khan’s take on the success of ‘Baahubali 2’ is rather unusual)

Finally, talking about the hugely successful ‘Baahubali 2-The Conclusion’, the movie continues its golden run at the box office. The Hindi version of the movie did a huge business of Rs 29 crore in the fourth week which is another record set by the movie. The Hindi lifetime business of the movie is Rs 487 crore nett. In spite of having competition from ‘Half Girlfriend’ and ‘Hindi Medium’, the movie continues to rule at the box office.
