Even with two new weekend releases, 'Toilet-Ek Prem Katha' steals the show

Bareilly Ki Barfi had taken a poor start of around 10-15% in the morning show and has collected Rs 2.25 crore (22.5 Million) net approx on day one.

The trio - Rajkummar Rao, Ayushmann Khurrana and Kriti Sanon - has won hearts with their incredible performance in Bareilly Ki Barfi.

Ashwini Iyer Tiwari's Bareilly Ki Barfi seems to have charmed the audience despite getting mixed reviews from the critics. It witnessed good growth on Saturday as it earned 3.85 crores. The story of the film revolves around Bitti Mishra (Kriti), a bohemian, break dance lover Bareilly girl who falls deeply in love with Pritam Vidrohi (Rajkummar) an author.

Presently, the movie is facing firm competition from Akshay Kumar's Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Annabelle: Creation.

The comedy-romance is produced by Junglee Pictures and BR Studios.

This week saw the dominance of films based in small-towns, when it comes to the Indian box office.

It would now be interesting to see if the Monday collections stay on to be at least Rs. 1.75 crore since that's the least which is required if the film has to step into the second week with a reasonable number of screens.

Bareilly Ki Barfi clashed at the box office with Partition: 1947 and VIP 2: Lalkar on Friday. "One of the promotion strategies had been to keep the ticket prices on the opening day as low as Rs 80-100 across several multiplexes in Mumbai and that acted in the film's favour", said film trade analyst Atul Mohan. The also stars Pankaj Tripathi and Seema Bhargava in important roles.
