Just like OMG! Oh My God, Sridevi's English Vinglish has also picked up after making a not-so-impressive start. The film that collected a meagre Rs. 2.5 cr on its first day, has garnered Rs. 12.6 cr in its opening weekend.

"#EnglishVinglish collected approx Rs. 12.6 cr nett in its opening weekend. Breakup [estimates]:- Fri 2.5 cr, Sat 4.35 cr, Sun 5.75 cr," trade expert Taran Adarsh tweeted.

The film got a huge critical acclaim from across the board. The word of mouth helped the collections. "#EnglishVinglish started on a slow note on Friday, but the terrific word of mouth helped the business grow over the weekend."
