Anurag Basu’s ‘Barfi!’ is picking up very fast at the box-office. In just six days, the movie has garnered a total of Rs 60 crore which is really a good number. In the opening weekend, the movie collects around Rs 33 crores but gradually the number increased.
The film shows a rise in the collection on Ganesh Chaturthi. Being a holiday, the movie saw a 15-20% bump on Wednesday. "Barfi Fri 9.2 cr, Sat 11.5 cr, Sun 13.9 cr, Mon 6.5 cr, Tue 6 cr, Wed 7.25 cr. Total: Rs. 54.35 cr nett. Extraordinary!," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted today.
The film is doing exceptionally well at the multiplexes then small theatres. "#Barfi was released in less than 700 cinema halls in India [a tiny release as compared to the biggies]. Occupancy at plexes was fantastic," adds Taran Adarsh.
The positive word about the film from critics and audience all over has made to an increase in business. "Barfi has done remarkable business. The film gathered steam with each passing day, rising to the optimum on Saturday and Sunday." Adarsh tweeted.
Made on a budget of Rs 30 crore, the film has not only picked out the making amount but also garnered huge profit.

The appreciation that is being showered on the film in India and around the world is unprecedented. It’s a huge moment for Anurag Basu and the crew. This is a film we have supported and nurtured from the beginning,” Roy Kapur told
