September 7 brought a treat for movie lovers as a good number of films released on that day. However, the bitter truth is that even 3 Bollywood films couldn’t surpass or even equaled the collections of one Hollywood flick.
Yes, we are talking about “The Nun” that is a clear winner in terms of box-office collections and doesn’t seem to stop any sooner. This film of “The Conjuring” series is from the era of Romanian convent when a nun lost her life in a mysterious manner. To investigate it, the Vatican sent two investigators who solved the case as well as came face to face against the demon.
The movie had a great opening with Rs 7.75 crore and the figures further showed growth on Saturday as it minted Rs 9.50 crore. However, they were not as good as expected on Sunday as “The Nun” earned Rs 9.75 crore in its first weekend, totaling the amount to Rs 27 crore.
JP Dutta’s multi-starrer movie “Paltan” has been average as far as box-office earnings are concerned. On the first day, it collected Rs 1.25 crore while on the second day, it did business of Rs 1.70 crore. There was a little improvement on Sunday and it minted Rs 2.1 crore, which makes the total collections Rs 5.05 crore so far.
Ekta Kapoor’s “Laila Majnu” starring fresh faces Avinash Tiwari and Tripti Dimri has also been average as it earned Rs 30 lakh and Rs 50 lakh on the first and second days, respectively. Talking about its first weekend business, the movie earned Rs 70 lakh and this makes its total earnings Rs 1.5 crore.
