  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report

Gandhi Jayanti, saw the release of (perhaps) one of the biggest films of the year, Siddharth Anand’s Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif starrer, `Bang Bang!`. The day also saw the release of one of the most accomplished directors of recent era, Vishal Bhardwaj’s Shahid and Shraddha Kapoor starrer `Haider`.

While it was obvious that `Bang Bang!` would set the box-office on fire (which it did), what came as a pleasant surprise was the performance of the superbly crafted `Haider`.

As per the initial estimates during the opening 8-days, `Bang Bang!` (4200 screens - India) has netted 120 crore while Haider (1200 screens India) managed a decent 40 crore.

While `Bang Bang!` is superb in the Overseas (UK£600,000 ; US$1,449,215), `Haider` is decent (UK£90,000 ; US$550,000).
