    Great work! Is it possible to extrapolate the total beyond the first weeks based on the data you have?

    I estimated the other weeks also on basis of this also. But on site as an example publich the first week only most of time. This week (21-02-09) u can check that dev d second week is also there on same basis.

    Thanks for the reply.

    So I assume you have an estimation of the collections beyond 6 weeks also. I do a bit of BO analysis myself, and would like to know your calculated total collections for the following movies:-

    Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi
    Singh is Kinng
    Jodhaa Akbar
    Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na

    Om shanti Om
    Chak De India
    Taare Zameen Par

    Dhoom 2
    Lage Raho Munnabhai
    Rang De Basanti
    Kabhie Alvida Na Kehna

    Waiting for your reply on this … I would like to check my estimated numbers with yours.

    I wanted the total … not just 6 weeks ones.

    After 6 weeks movie hardly add more than 1 Cr, apart for JA no other movie has 6th week collection >1 cr.

    Well as per your estimates here, JA made 2.26 cr and Rab Ne made 1.26 in their 6th week.

    JA infact was the longest running film last year in Indian theaters, it was even celebrated 100 days in some places … not sure if Rab Ne dropped too drastically after week 6 to be ignored either … thats the reason I wanted to know your estimates beyond week 6 for these films.
