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

There is no significant activity at the box-office as most new releases have maintained a safe distance from Aamir Khan's X'mas week release, 'Dangal'.

 Ok Jaanu  Verdict: -
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The coming Friday will witness the release of Fox Star Studios, Dharma Productions and Madras Talkies' Shaad Ali directed 'O Jaanu'. Given that 'Dangal' will still be quite strong in the fourth week, 'Ok Jaanu' is unlikely to make a significant impact at the box-office.


 Dangal  Verdict: All time blockbuster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 116 crore ; UK£360,000 ; US$2,700,000  Total Earnings: India Rs.313 crore ; UK£2,100,000 ; US$10.75m

 Genre: Drama  Recommended Audience: General
After a stupendous opening week, netting 197 crore (including Tamil & Telugu dubbed), the Aamir Khan starrer, Nitesh Tiwari directed 'Dangal' saw another huge week, and is an all time blockbuster. The film is all set to be the biggest netter at the Indian box-office, beating Aamir's 'PK'.

'Dangal' is also an overseas blockbuster grossing over $25m.


 Wajah Tum Ho  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 0.50 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 11 crore
The T-Series venture, Vishal Pandya directed Sharman, Gurmeet and Sana starrer, 'Wajah Tum Ho' managed to be a coverage film for the producers, after accounting for the non theatrical rights.

 Befikre  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 11 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 60 crore ; UK£285,000 ; US$750,000
Checking out the Aditya Chopra directed Ranveer-Vaani starrer, 'Befikre', after quite good opening week (49 crore) the film crashed in the second, and is a disappointment for the YRF-Aditya-Ranveer combo, given the 75 crore (all inclusive) cost and the non-performance in the overseas ($3m).


 Dear Zindagi  Verdict: Semi-hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.0.75 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 70 crore ; UK£370,000 ; US $2,375,000
Concluding with the Gauri Shinde directed Shah Rukh Khan (extended cameo) and Alia Bhatt starrer,'Dear Zindagi', the film ends it's run with an almost semi-hit status; a good outcome given that the film has incurred an expense of 33 crore (22 crore production, 11 crore promotion) and has been sold for distribution in India to Narendra Hirawat for 32 crore plus 3 crore advance.

'Dear Zindagi' has also done very well in the Overseas, grossing $7m.
