If first two weeks box office collection are compared of both Aashiqui 2 and Raanjhanaa there is absolutely nothing to separate between them. Aashiqui 2 collected around 35.95 crore nett in the 1st week, whereas Raanjhanaa collected around 34.95 crore nett. Just difference of 1 crore. Coming to second week Aashiqui 2 collected around 17.01 crore, whereas Raanjhanaa collected 17.7 crore. Just difference of about 70 lakh, less than a crore. So, that's close both films are.
After two weeks Aashiqui 2 cumulative collection was around 52.96 crore, whereas Raanjhanaa cumulative total was around 52.65 crore. That close both film are at box office.
Coming to the word of mouth Raanjhanaa is also carrying terrific word of mouth likewise Aashiqui 2. We knew that Aashiqui 2 went on to collect near about 80 crore in its lifetime. It had the best trending of the year and have one of the best trending in recent years. So, will Raanjhanaa be able to replicate that?
No doubt Raanjhanaa is matching pace for pace with Aashiqui 2 in first 2 weeks. But now it will have much uphill task. With all due respect to Aashiqui 2, it is to be stated that Raanjhanaa is facing much tough fight with Lootera, Policegiri, Ghanchakkar, Fukrey, YJHD all running now at box office. Also, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is releasing next week. That means practically impossible for Raanjhanaa to match Aashiqui 2 from now on. No doubt Aashiqui 2 got good trending, but it got some breathing space as other films fighting with it failing badly at the box office at that time. Still taking nothing away from Aashiqui 2 for superlative performance.
We have done the comparison of both the film as Aashiqui 2 is a Blockbuster and Raanjhanaa would have been another potential one if it had got little bit more breathing space at box office. Still expect Raanjhanaa to touch 60 crore nett and more in its lifetime and be a respectable Hit. Sometimes its good to evaluate and compare two nice films which have done commendable job at box office. Feels good.
