Bul Bul is all set to create a new record in box office collections for the first week going by the performance of the film in the opening weekend. The film, which released on May 10, has recorded houseful collections in almost all centers in the first three days till Sunday. Initial estimates put the gross collection at Rs 5 crore for the first three-day opening weekend.
The film released in 160 centers across Karnataka. In the MMCH (Mandya-Mysore-Coorg-Hassan) region each and every show in the first three days were houseful. The film has also created a record in Davangere where all shows have been houseful for three days- a first for any film in this area. While Shimoga-Chikmagalore regions are on the way to break records, the north Karnataka region has witnessed 'above good' collections.
The only place where the film's collection is not too good is in Mangalore. Wrong selection of theatres is said to be the problem. The film has been released in 'mass theatres' where family audience do not come. Even then, the film's collection is good in Mangalore area but only dull compared to collections in other regions.
Sandalwood distributors estimate that Bul Bul will create a new record for first week collections. The film could easily touch Rs 10 crore gross in seven days, it is estimated.
