Within five days since its prediction, The Lion King has managed to cross Rs. 150 crore mark. The movie released a week after Hrithik Roshan-Mrunal Thakur starrer Super 30, and despite that, the live action-drama film managed to touch the mark way before Super 30.
Here’s the break-up of The Lion King collections:
Week One – 80,94,00,000
Week Two- 44,59,00,000
Week Three – 16,20,00,000
Week Four – 9,00,00,000 apprx
Total – 1,50,73,00,000 aprrx
The Lion King, being a Hollywood release, has a different audience base and might sustain with some drop in Box Office collections due to Hobbs and Shaw release. Super 30 however would majorly suffer since Akshay Kumar starrer Mission Mangal has released in theatres, giving it tough competition.
Although Mission Mangal, starring Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Nithya Menon and Sharman Joshi, was expected to find some competition from John Abraham-Mrunal Thakur starrer Batla House, that movie is still trying to find a way to compete with Mission Mangal, which has opened to excellent numbers.
