  ´RA.One´ Blazes At The Box-Office, Sets Best Single Day & Three Day Record!
  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

The start of Shah Rukh Khan’s `RA.One` was expected to be earth shattering and that is how it was. The evening and night shows were obviously hit by ‘Diwali’ puja and celebrations, still the film netted 15 crore from India surpassing the likes of `3 Idiots`, `Dabangg` and `Ready` but could not match the 21 crore Eid day collection of `Bodyguard`. Additionally the dubbed versions managed another 3.50 crore. But the best was still to come and Thursday saw collections of the Anubhav Sinha directed RA.ONE hittting the roof netting in excess of 23 crore, which is the best ever single day total in the history of Bollywood box-office. And if we add the contributions of the dubbed versions the figure creeps past 25 crore! As per early estimates, after three days, `RA.One` has netted in the range of 54-55 crore from India (another record) and if we add the dubbed versions the figure goes up to 59 crores. `RA.One` is also doing superbly in the Overseas. The other two releases of the week Himesh`s `Damadamm` and Eesha`s `Tell Me O Khuda` have both sunk without atrace.

 My Friend Pinto`  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 1.25 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 1.25 crore
The Sanjay Leela Bhansali banner and UTV Motions Pictures’ venture, `My Friend Pinto`, was another calamity, though not a disaster like `Mod`.

Prashant Chadha’s `Azaan` saw no takers and given the high 30 crore cost the film is another disaster.

Y-Films` `Mujhse Fraandship Karoge` did fare the best (comparatively) but still the collections were nothing to write home about and `MFK` will not be able to emulate even the moderate success of it’s predecessor, `Luv Ka The End`.
