'Players' earns 15.05 crs in the first weekend

Abbas-Mustan’s thriller ‘Players’ failed to strike gold at the box-office. Released at over 2000 screens in India, Abbas-Mastan’s official remake of the Hollywood flick, ‘The Italian Job’, could only get a below-average response of 25 percent at theatres. At some cities the response was even low as 5 percent.

The film is expected to do 18-19 crores business under any circumstances but unfortunately, the film could not reached to that point and the first weekend collection recorded only 15.05 crs. Made on a whopping budget of Rs 45 crores was a big disappointment for the investors.  

On the first day, the film scored Rs 4.7 crores at the Box Office.  Its collection was expected to improve on Saturday, but it declined with it gross Rs 4.65 crores. On Sunday, it showed a ray of hope with Rs 5.7 crores hike.  Expectation from ‘Players’ was sky high but it was a big let down. The film only manages to earn Rs. 15 crore in the first weekend.
