The audiences loved the action-adventure and the positive word of mouth resulted in  the total worldwide collection of Bang Bang soaring to 290.97 crore gross so far. In India, the collection stands at 154.68 crore nett (approx 221 crore gross). With no big films releasing for the next 10 days, the analysts feel that Bang Bang will keep its tremendous run going.

Bollywood Hungama:

“70 crore in 11 days in overseas, 7th highest international GBO and still counting. Amongst Top 5 openers in the history of Bollywood. Truly amazing!”

Joginder Tuteja, Trade Writer:

“Real test for a biggie is to cross 150 crore mark and go beyond. That’s because the true strength of the content is known then. This year only one film, Kick, has crossed 150 and now Bang Bang joins too. A continued run with a good second week gives the film a great chance to take a shot at 175 crore mark. Hit.”

Nikita Wagh, Editor, KoiMoi.com:

“150+ crore business was on cards, for a film of this genre! A steady week 2 may take the film’s business to rocking 175 crore mark!”

Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios:

“We were extremely confident that the entire family would enjoy Bang Bang and audience response to our movie has made us extremely proud that our content has delivered. We wanted to make India’s biggest action-adventure movie and Bang Bang is being called that today. As a production house, we are delighted. The film has crossed 150 crore nett in India and is doing fantastic business and breaking records in the overseas territories. It’s a moment to celebrate for the entire Bang Bang team.”

Produced by Fox Star Studios, Bang Bang is a complete family entertainer and a total paisa vasool flick, which is set to break new records in the days to come. Well, here’s congratulating the entire cast and crew of Bang Bang!
