Bollywood Box Office: October 26-28, 2018

The weekend’s new Bollywood releases were overshadowed by the behemoth Badhaai Ho. From October 26-28, 2018, Baazaar earned $139,316 from 87 North American theaters ($1,601 average), according to Bollywood Hungama — not terrible, but nothing to write home about. 5 Weddings opened with a wretched $5,218 from eleven theaters ($474 average).

Right now, Badhaai Ho is where it’s at. The family comedy added twenty theaters in its second weekend of release, taking in $688,627 from 127 theaters ($5,422 average), according to 143 Cinema. In ten days, it has amassed an amazing $1,891,984. It needs another $800,000 or so to break into the Top 5 for the year in North America, but with no new Bollywood movies releasing here this coming weekend, that’s totally possible.

Andhadhun is still going strong as well, with 143 Cinema reporting fourth-weekend earnings of $99,499 from 26 theaters ($3,827 average). Its total stands at $1,104,601.

Namaste England‘s second-weekend returns are kinda tragic: $4,378 from twelve theaters ($365 average), according to Bollywood Hungama. Four Canadian theaters are responsible for $3,733 of that total, meaning that Namaste England earned a measly $645 from eight US theaters. That’s a per-screen average of $933 in Canada versus just $81 in the United States. Yikes! Namaste England has total earnings of $98,710.
