The Aamir-Kareena-Rani starrer ‘Talaash’ has entered the coveted 100 crore club earning approximately Rs. 85 crore in India and equivalent to Rs 45 crore abroad (source: Mid Day). Made on an extremely modest budget of Rs. 40 crore, the film can be classified a hit and though not in the league of previous Aamir starrers collections wise, this figure is still good given the film�۪s genre. In the UK the film collected a further �138,246 taking its total to a respectable �713,640 (source: BFI).
The Akshay-Asin starrer ��Khiladi 786�۪ is steady and collected Rs 45 crore (source: Bollywood Hungama) in its first week which isn�۪t bad, but still nowhere near as big as previous Akshay Kumar starrers that released earlier this year. Although the film isn�۪t a flop its returns are still disappointing. In the UK the film collected �104,208 (source: The Guardian) and trailed in at number 12 collecting less than ��Talaash�۪, even though it was released a week later.
Both films have the advantage of another open week without any major releases, that is, until the Salman Khan starrer ��Dabangg 2�۪ hits the marquee on 21st December. A sequel to 2010 smash hit ��Dabanng�۪, the film is expected to obliterate box office records and put Salman in an enviable position as far as box office takings are concerned.
