Dhobi Ghat Box Office Collections Report

Dhobi Ghat Box Office Review: DHOBI GHAT, a film catering to a niche audience, opened to a good response at select theaters across all urban centres. The opening at the 25-30 odd main theaters was in the 80% to 90% range, while the occupancy at the mass belt ranged from 30% to 40%.

The film has been released in 325 screens in India, which, some people feel, is still on the higher side given the genre of this film [art house cinema]. Since the week is very good [Wednesday, 26 January is a holiday] and the producers, who are also its distributors, feel that a tidy sum can be recovered in its initial week.

The evening and night shows of DHOBI GHAT were very good at urban centres and a healthy weekend is on the cards.

Dhobi Ghat First Day Box Office Business

Dhobi Ghat managed a decent first day of around 2.75-3 crore nett thanks to good business in the evening across all metroes. Mumbai, Mysore and Delhi NCR performed best. The all India breakdown is as follows.

Mumbai - 1.10 crore

Delhi/UP - 60 lakhs

East Punjab - 25 lakhs

West Bengal - 15 lakhs

CP Berar - 11 lakhs

CI - 8 lakhs

Rajasthan - 10 lakhs

Nizam - 15 lakhs

Mysore - 21 lakhs

Others - 10 lakhs

TOTAL - 2.85 crore

Saturday Box Office Report of Dhobi Ghat

Dhobi Ghat did well on Saturday as it showed growth at places like Mumbai, Pune, Delhi NCR, Kolkata and Bangalore. The non metro areas were down 15-20%.

The business on Saturday was: 3-3.25 crore nett
Two day total: 6 crore nett approx.

The film's best circuit Mysore was affected by a bandh and theatres only opened after 6 pm and therefore the film lost around 15-20 lakhs nett business.

The film should have a good Sunday in the metroes and it could add another 3.50 crore nett for a 9.50 crore nett weekend.

What goes in its favor is its low cost. The cost of production is Rs. 5 cr [the figure has been confirmed by Aamir Khan to this writer] and an additional Rs. 2.5 cr to Rs. 3 cr has been spent on P & A, which takes the total cost to approx. Rs. 7.5 cr to Rs. 8 cr. While Aamir is in talks for the Satellite Rights of the film, he should be able to recover the entire figure [Rs. 8 cr] from Satellite itself, while the theatrical business in India, Overseas and also the revenue generated from Home Video should come as bonus.

Internationally, DHOBI GHAT, which opened on Thursday in U.A.E., has embarked on an excellent start, garnering better opening figures than TAARE ZAMEEN PAR, according to UTV.

Neelam-Sameer To Marry On January 23rd

Neelam Kothari-Sameer Soni Marriage: Samir Soni and his ladylove and actress-turned-jewelry designer Neelam Kothari are set to tie the knot on Jan 23 2011.

The shy actor, lately out of Bigg Boss said, "We will have a very quiet wedding ceremony with just our parents and siblings. We will have a wedding reception for our friends Jan 26."

"We`re going crazy trying to draw up a list of invitees for the reception. We`ve so many people to call."

And yes, Samir will invite all his Bigg Boss inmates, even the ones he didn`t get along with.

Samir reasoned, "That`s what decorum demands. Throughout my stint at Bigg Boss, I maintained my dignity. That`s what I had promised to do to my parents. They were against me going into Bigg Boss. I had assured them that I wouldn`t shame them."

"I think I kept my word. I lasted quite long in there. The whole experience taught me to be patient."

Samir and Neelam have no immediate honeymoon plans. Samir explained, "I`ve stayed away from Mumbai long enough because of Bigg Boss. So, no honeymoon for now."

"But yes, kids are definitely on the anvil. Both of us are so quiet, we need some activity in the house," laughs Samir.

Neelam said, "Yes, I am very happy. We plan to start a family immediately. We want lots of kids."

IN the last few months, Mumbai has opened its arms to many Hollywood celebrities — from matinee idol Tom Cruise, to hotel heiress Paris Hilton.

Adding another star- studded feather to its cap yesterday, the city hosted the First Lady of American television, Oprah Winfrey.

And the international talk show queen’s welcome was nothing short of a welcome fit for royalty. The Taj Mahal Palace & Tower in Colaba, where the talk show host is staying for a day, made her greeting unforgettable.

Apart from the procedural garland and diya greeting, Oprah was also ushered into the hotel with a Sanskrit song sung by eight visually challenged boys from Happy Home, a school for the visually challenged.

According to sources, Oprah was visibly moved by the song and later asked for the meaning of the lyrics of the song. Meher Banaji, the director of the home, said, “ The boys sang this beautiful song Swagatam and Oprah was clearly touched by the song.

While the boys sung, Oprah was rapt in attention and later even asked us for the meaning of the lyrics.” Banaji added that the boys were accompanied with a tabla player also from the home.

“ She spoke to the boys, who are all aged 8- 16. They were very excited to meet her and were thoroughly impressed by her.”

Later, Oprah made her way to socialite Parmeshwar Godrej’s house where a party was organised in her honour.

Sources say the get- together is a formal sit- down dinner that is off- limits to the media and will see several B- town celebs flocking to meet the television royal. It was earlier rumoured that the Bachchans were to host a private dinner for her at their residence in Juhu, but plans were later changed to Godrej’s abode as Oprah had expressed a desire to meet a few socialites in addition to Bollywood stars.

But it seems that beti- B is on Oprah’s mind as she was keen to meet Abhishek, Aishwarya and their newborn at their home. Abhi- Ash were Oprah’s guests on her chat show two years ago.

This is Oprah’s first visit to India and she is also expected to make an appearance at the Jaipur Literature Festival scheduled for later this week.
