Bollywood Box Office: September 6-8, 2019

Chhichhore had a nice opening weekend in North America. From September 6-8, 2019, the comedy-drama earned $614,335 from 195 theaters ($3,150 average), according to Box Office Mojo. Such a wide opening-weekend release — the eighth highest theater count for the year so far — may have been a touch ambitious, given that it posted the sixteenth highest opening weekend average. Still, it should clear $1 million here, no problem.

Saaho fell off dramatically in its second weekend, pulling in less than 15% of what it made in its opening weekend. The action flick earned $216,800 from 225 theaters — an average of just $964 per theater, according to Bollywood Hungama. Its total stands at $3,090,643, slotting it in at fourth place for the year so far among Hindi films and multilingual releases.

Other Hindi movies still in North American theaters:

  • Mission Mangal: Week 4; $111,158 from 94 theaters; $1,183 average; $3,570,506 total
  • Batla House: Week 4; $4,047 from six theaters; $675 average; $542,042 total
