The docu-drama ‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams‘, which is based on the life of Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has held pretty well on its first Monday as the movie did a business of Rs 3.40-3.75 crore nett approximately in the Hindi language. So, the four-day total collection of the film is over Rs 27.69 crore nett and considering the fact that it’s a docu-drama the numbers are really good. Since the production cost of the movie is not too high, it has done good profit.
Talking about Irrfan Khan-starrer ‘Hindi Medium’ which released on May 19, the movie has emerged as a HIT at the box office. The second Monday collection of the movie is Rs 1.75 crore and that takes the total collection of the movie to Rs 35.85 crore nett. The lifetime business of the movie can go above Rs 50 crore nett depending on how well the movie fares until Salman Khan-starrer ‘Tubelight’ hits the theatres. ‘Hindi Medium’ has earned appreciation in some cities only, but those are enough for the movie as the budget of the movie wasn’t very high to start with.

The other movie which released on May 19, ‘Half Girlfriend’, starring Arjun Kapoor-Shraddha Kapoor in main roles started off on a good note, but soon saw a dip in numbers. The movie’s business has fallen considerably as the movie raked in Rs 75 lakh on its second Monday. But despite low numbers, the movie’s first weekend business has helped it to become a hit as the overall business of the movie is Rs 51.50 crore nett, still higher than that of ‘Hindi Medium’.
