Bengaluru Box Office (August 17 to 19)
Tuesday, 21 August, 2012, 08:38
Salman Khan`s Ek Tha Tiger released on Independence day got the biggest opening for Hindi film in recent days despite average reviews and opinion. The film opened better in Bengaluru and other centres than the actor`s previous films Body Guard, Wanted, Ready and Dabangg. Kannada film Challenge with all supporting artists in main roles is a well made film but it fared badly in theatres. Puri Jagannadh`s Devudu Chesina Manasulu is a total disaster. Never before did a Ravi Teja film have such a poor opening. Julaayi collections have dropped in the second week.
