First day box-office collection of ‘Bewakoofiyaan’
The trend continues and ‘Bewakoofiyaan’ is the next movie in the row to start off slow at the box-office despite popular star casts and promoting so well. Sonam Kapoor, Ayushmaan Khurana and Rishi Kapoor starrer, ‘Bewakoofiyaan’ had a dull start at the box-office. Despite having few interesting facts, the movie failed to rock at the box-office on the first day.
In the first case, it was a Yash Raj movie, secondly for the first time Sonam Kapoor is paired opposite Ayushmaan Khurana, the film also had some intimate scene between the co-stars and the last but not the least is Sonam Kapoor’s first bikini show. Sonam, who had an inhibition for the two-piece due to her figure worked out on her body and donned a bright pink bikini in the film. The movie was also well promoted on national television but despite of all, it had only 20-25% occupancy in the morning shows. Pre-Holi celebrations, exams are considered to be the reason behind the dull opening. The film is expected to earn good numbers in the coming days
The last week release Kangana Ranaut starrer, ‘Queen’ continued to rule the box-office. The first week breakup of the film, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh is: Friday Rs1.75 crore, Saturday Rs 3.50 crore, Sunday Rs 4.75 crore, Monday Rs 2.05 crore, Tuesday Rs 2.15 crore, Wednesday Rs 2.30 crore and Thursday Rs 2.30 crore. ‘Queen’ made 18 crores in just seven days.
The positive word of mouth for ‘Queen’ might affect the collection of ‘Bewakoofiyaan’. Audience are opting for ‘Queen’ rather than ‘Bewakoofiyaan’. ‘Queen’ continued to dominate the box-office.
