New Delhi, July 3 (IANS) Aamir Khan's home production 'Delhi Belly' has broken the dry spell at box office by earning Rs.15.65 crore on its first two days despite being an adult comedy, while Amitabh Bachchan's family entertainer 'Bbuddah...Hoga Teraa Baap' (BHTB) is at Rs.4.26 crore.

The opening collection for AB Corp's Rs.10 crore 'Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap' was Rs.1.91 crore, but it picked up on Saturday by grossing Rs.2.35, said film critic Taran Adarsh on his Twitter page.

'Bbuddah HTB' would've collected double/triple of what it has, had it averted clash with other films. Would've got more screens also,' he wrote.

Anant Verma, director and business head, DT Cinemas told IANS that both the films are doing great, 'however, 'Delhi Belly' is slightly better as it has more shows than 'Bbuddah..'

'Moreover, it caters to the young crowd, while Bbuddah.. is meant for family. 'Delhi Belly' has an interesting concept and it has been promoted in such a way that the audience know what to expect from it,' said Verma.

Made at a budget of Rs.25 crore including print and publicity, Imran Khan-starrer earned Rs.7.15 crore friday and Rs 8.50 crore on Saturday.

While 'Bbuddah...' is about a flamboyant Paris-returned gangster, played by Amitabh, 'Delhi Belly' captures the urban, money-is-everything, foul-mouthed India with Imran Khan, Vir Das and Kunal Roy Kapoor in the lead roles.

However, considering the budget and genre of the two films, both are doing well.

In fact, in some multiplexes 'Bbuddah...' is giving neck to neck competition to 'Delhi Belly'.

'The response has been good. All the shows of 'Delhi Belly 'and 'Bbuddah..,' are going houseful. Yesterday 'Delhi Belly' was 99 percent while Bbuddah was 98.5 percent,' said Rakesh Warikoo, general manager (operations) Spice Cinemas, who are running 18 shows of 'Delhi Belly' and eight shows of 'Bbuddah... Hoga Teraa Baap'.

Yogesh Raizada of Waves Cinemas sees 'Delhi Belly' doing well in the long run and suggests 'Bbuddah...' is a complete masala film and a family entertainer. It is Amitabh all the way. All the performances are also good. It makes for an enjoyable watch,' he said.

' 'Delhi Belly' cannot be watched with parents due to its language. However, the film is likely to run for long time, although it is true, with the release of 'Murder 2' next week, the business will get affected to some extent,' he added.
