Delhi Belly scores over Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap

July 04, 2011 15:15 IST

Delhi Belly takes a reasonable opening weekend at the multiplexes but expectedly, did not fare well at single screen theatres. Its Hindi version was not too strong either.  On the other hand, Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap saw a very poor opening. The title itself seems to have backfired.

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the box office verdict for the week.
