Arjun Kapoor - Kareena Kapoor's Ki and Ka saw an upward trend in its opening weekend collections as it raked in Rs 25.11 crore.
The gradual growth in collections over the weekend proves that the audience word of mouth is definitely not as bad as the critic reviews suggested. The film continued to perform well at metros like Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru and Pune with the best collections coming in from Mumbai.
Mass dominated circuit like CI (Central India) witnessed around 50 per cent growth from Friday to Sunday. The film, which collected Rs 26 lakh in CI on Friday, raked in Rs 39 lakh on Sunday, which is a positive sign. Apart from CI, the performance at other mass circuits is rather dismal as the film barely got a release.
Day Wise Collections:
- Friday: Rs 7.30 crore
- Saturday: Rs 8.41 crore
- Sunday: Rs 9.40 crore
- Total: Rs 25.11 crore
Ki and Ka released on around 1,600 screens in India and now stands a good chance to recover the investment and accrue profits. The collections on Monday will give a clear idea about the word of mouth as well as the film's chances to recover the investment.
