Box Office – M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story to challenge Airlift and Rustom for a place in Top-3 – Day 6 collections
By Joginder Tuteja
M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story has gone past another milestone. On its sixth day, the film has now gone past the lifetime collections of Fan [85 crore]. With 6.6 crore more coming in on Wednesday, the film now stands at 88.63 crore, which is a fabulous number indeed.
The next three milestones that the Neeraj Pandey directed film would be eyeing are:
Airlift – 129 crore
Rustom – 128 crore
Housefull 3 – 109 crore
Considering the fact that each of these three films is an Akshay Kumar starrer and Sushant Singh Rajput is actually gearing up to challenge them is a feat huge enough for the young actor. Moreover, what is noticeable is that Neeraj Pandey would be pretty much competing with himself since he is associated with both M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story as well as Rustom.
The film has seen a drop of ~1 crore from one weekday to another and that was expected, considering the kind of head-start that it had taken over the weekend. With a capacity worth 66 crore already exhausted during the weekend, the film has now almost reached its target audience. Whatever comes from here is bonus indeed for Fox as the film would easily go past the 100 crore mark and then continue to rake in good profits.
As the 5th highest grosser of the year already and set to be fourth by end of the second weekend, the film would continue to hold this record till end of this month. Post that Shivaay and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil would come into fray. Since latter is a Fox film again, rest assured the corporate house would enjoy a good holder in the Top-5 grossers list of 2016.
