Badla Box Office: Amitabh Bachchan in a still from Badla (courtesy taranadarsh)
"Badla is a hit!" declared trade analyst Taran Adarsh, who also shared the film's latest collection figures. Cine-goers have responded well to Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu's crime-thriller Badla on the second Saturday, resulting in a box office collection of Rs 6.60 crore, tweeted Mr Adarsh. In nine days, Badla has raked in a total sum of Rs 48.65 crore (India business) and Rs 57.40 crore (gross collections). So far, Badla has had an uninterrupted run at the box office with no major release disrupting its course. Badla will however be joined by Akshay Kumar's Kesari on Holi but Mr Adarsh predicts that the Sujoy Ghosh-directed thriller will still continue to make money at the ticket counters.
Badla also has the potential to touch Rs 75 crore, said Mr Adarsh. Read his post here:
#Badla is a HIT… Witnesses solid growth on [second] Sat… Will cross Rs 50 cr today [Sun]… Superb trending… Will score even after #Kesari release… Has potential to cross Rs 75 cr… [Week 2] Fri 4.05 cr, Sat 6.60 cr. Total: Rs 48.65 cr. India biz. Gross BOC: Rs 57.40 cr.

Earlier, Mr Adarsh had tweeted to say that Badla will surpass the Rs 50 crore mark on its second weekend but the film already made almost Rs 60 crore on Saturday. On Friday, Sujoy Ghosh thanked moviegoers for the tremendous response to Badla. "My team and I cannot thank you enough for the love you have given to Badla… please keep spreading the good word because without your words we can't make films like Badla. Thank you, so much," he tweeted.
