Whatever Irrfan Khan touches turns gold. Blame it on his amazing acting prowess or the subjects he picks, they manage to establish a direct chord with the audience. And his latest film Hindi Medium is just another example. The film, which has kept its pace at the box office even after its second weekend, is soon to cross Rs 50 crore. As per the latest box office figures, shared by Trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the Irrfan Khan-starrer has made a collection of Rs 43.98 cr. He tweeted, “#HindiMedium [Week 2] Fri 2.82 cr, Sat 4.21 cr, Sun 5.11 cr, Mon 2.20 cr, Tue 2.22 cr, Wed 2.21 cr. Total: ₹ 43.98 cr. ROCK-STEADY!”
Hindi Medium has clearly become the choice of movie goers over Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor’s Half Girlfriend. The film, which was adapted from Chetan Bhagat’s novel is seeing falling profits by the day and we wonder if it will be able to survive for another week at the theaters.
As per reports, Half Girlfriend has earned Rs 55 crore and currently stands near Rs 57 crore approximately. But if we see its profit trend closely, the film has witnessed a major fall with a collection of a mere Rs 6.12 crore on its weekend two.
As per trade pundits, the Irrfan Khan film will touch Rs 60 crore. But with as many as half a dozen films releasing the coming weekend, it will be worth taking note as to which of the two will survive at the box office.
