It’s going to be a 50 for HanuMan [Hindi]. The film is set to score in excess of Rs. 50 crores at the box office and it’s a matter of a few more days before that eventually happens. After being in theatres for three weeks, the film now stands at 48.49 crores* after its fourth Friday. Just like Fighter, it too saw a big drop on Monday when collections came down to 36 lakhs. It did recover on a day by day basis with some increments in numbers but still, at the very least a score of over 50 lakhs was expected.

Hanuman (Hindi) Box Office: Is marching towards Rs. 50 crores+ lifetime, will stay below 12th Fail though

This did happen on fourth Friday and that has pushed the score further. Now what it needs is a good jump in numbers today, something which had happened last weekend as well when the Republic Day holiday had really pushed it ahead and then Saturday and Sunday had stayed over the Rs. 1 crore mark. That’s what’s expected today and tomorrow as well and if the Rs. 1 crore mark is surpassed again on both the days then it would be really good. There is a chance of that to happen since Fighter has normalized already, which means there is space available for it.

At one point it seemed that the Teja Sajja film will challenge 12th Fail lifetime but then that won’t happen as the eventual lifetime will still stay below the Rs. 55 crores mark. That said, director Prasanth Verma has delivered a solid hit and it’s nice to see a small film come from nowhere and give the month of January something to cheer about.

*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
