John Abraham's Batla House, which released on Thursday alongside Akshay Kumar's multi-starrer Mission Mangal, is having a good run at the ticket windows in India. The movie, based on the controversial Batla House encounter case, witnessed a solid opening on day 1 after garnering mixed reviews from the critics. On day 2, the action-thriller did fairly good business and then on day 3 and day 4 it again witnessed an upward trend and ended up collecting big moolah. Batla House will definitely feel the heat on Monday as most movies do but at the same time, John starrer will also enter the Rs 50 crore club.

We say so because in its four-day extended first weekend Nikhil Advani's directorial venture has managed to mint Rs 47.99 crore which is quite impressive. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter just a while back and revealed the updated figures saying, "#BatlaHouse has a healthy *extended* weekend... Gathered momentum on Day 3 and 4... Faring better in #DelhiUP... Will need to maintain the pace on weekdays... Thu 15.55 cr, Fri 8.84 cr, Sat 10.90 cr, Sun 12.70 cr. Total: ₹ 47.99 cr. India biz."
Further, talking about the film's Sunday performance, Boxofficeindia.com has reported, "The problem for the film is that the film is not doing that well in Mumbai circuit. All India collections were just 20% down from day one but an area like Gujarat was 30% down when Sunday is normally very strong for Gujarat / Saurashtra. The film is doing better in Delhi / UP and if both Mumbai and Delhi / UP can hold well on Monday that should be enough for the film."
