Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva touched the Rs. 200-crore mark in 10 days. The second weekend recorded good collections but the weekdays were not half as exciting. The second weekend for all the versions (Hindi as well as South language dubbed) put together started with a take of Rs. 8.75 crore on Friday. Collections on Saturday shot up to Rs. 14 crore. The Sunday total was Rs. 14.50 crore. The second weekend, therefore, closed at Rs. 37.25 crore. The total for 10 days, therefore, touched Rs. 200.25 crore. Collections for the weekdays were not up to the mark: Monday – Rs. 4.25 crore, Tuesday – Rs. 3.75 crore, Wednesday – Rs. 3.10 crore, Thursday – Rs. 2.65 crore. In this way, the total for the weekdays was Rs. 13.75 crore. Hence the second week’s total was Rs. 51 crore. Of this, the dubbed South language versions have netted Rs. 3 crore in all in the second week. Grand total for 2 weeks: Rs. 214 crore.
