Barfi! held up very strongly on its eighth day collections as it collected around 3.25 crore nett. The drop is 60% from day one is excellent for a day eight from day one drop. The norm has been around 70% for some of the biggest hits this year. The film has now collected close to 61 crore nett in eight days.
Mumba, Delhi/UP, East Punjab, West Bengal and Mysore are contributing a lot for the film though in mass centres the film is very low.
Despite a film like Heroine being released which was heavily promoted, Barfi! was large unaffected especially in multiples areas where it is strong. The film should see a good jump over the weekend on Saturday and Sunday.
