Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal continues its impressive run at the box office, inching closer to the coveted Rs 750 crore mark worldwide. However, its domestic earnings witnessed a dip on Day 11, recording its lowest single-day collection yet.
According to early estimates from industry tracker Sacnilk, Animal collected Rs 9.14 crore on Day 11, taking its total domestic box office collection to Rs 440.41 crore. This marks a significant drop from its Day 10 collections of Rs 12.58 crore and Day 9 collections of Rs 15.32 crore.
Despite the decline in domestic earnings, Animal continues to perform well overseas. As of Day 10, the film had raked in an impressive Rs 203.25 crore from international markets. This strong overseas performance has helped Animal surpass the Rs 700 crore mark worldwide in just 10 days.
The Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial has already become an All-Time Blockbuster, surpassing several big-budget films at the box office. It has outperformed Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2, Rajinikanth’s Jailer, and Thalapathy Vijay’s Leo on the global stage. Now, Animal is only behind Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan (Rs 1,160 crore) and Pathaan (Rs 1,055 crore) in terms of worldwide earnings.
Analysts attribute Animal’s success to its compelling storyline, powerful performances, and high production values. The film has also benefitted from the holiday season and positive word-of-mouth. However, some industry experts believe that the film’s performance has begun to decline due to competition from other releases and a lack of major promotional activities.
It remains to be seen whether Animal can maintain its momentum and cross the Rs 750 crore mark worldwide. The film’s performance in the coming weeks will depend on several factors, including its ability to attract repeat audiences and the release of new competition.
