Looks like Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez starrer Dishoom climbed up the ladder during Saturday and Sunday. The weekend has proved to be a blessing in disguise for the film’s business. Looking at the first day opening collection, we were expecting Dishoom to be a turndown (especially since Sultan is still running in theatres and so is Kabali), but the movie has surprisingly saved itself from drowning. Here’s a look at it’s entire first weekend collections.

With a multiple star cast that also included special appearance by Parineeti Chopra, Akshay Kumar and Nargis Fakhri, around 84 crores went into the creation of this masala entertainer. Dishoom as a film has received not more than 3 stars by film critics all over. The masses too have liked it because of John and Varun’s presence, and less due to the film’s script (which sort of meanders mid way).

The first day collection of Dishoom was 11.05 crores whereas the second day earned 12 crores and the last day managed to cross 13.45 crores. Overall, the movie has earned 36.52 crores so far. Let’s see if the makers can recover the production budget of this flick. And then we shall move on to the movie’s profit.
