The Lion King Box Office Day 5: The Lion King has very good collections on Tuesday as well with 7.15 crores* coming in. The numbers are holding on quite strongly after Monday brought in 7.90 crores.
The film is progressing fine with 69.80 crores* already accumulated in 5 days flat. That’s a very good average of almost 14 crores been maintained on a day to day basis, which is ahead of what the film had gathered on its first day (11.06 crores). This kind of hold does wonders for a film as you know that it is now set well for a very good second weekend as well.
So far, the film seems to be on track for a lifetime of around 150 crores which would be fantastic. That would take it to the superhit/blockbuster zone. A unique feat indeed considering the film belongs to the animation genre.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
