First day box-office collection of ‘The Shaukeens'


Released last Friday‘The Shaukeens’ made an average earning of Rs 5 crore in the opening day.  Starring Annu Kapoor, Piyush Mishra, Anupam Kher and Lisa Haydon in the lead roles along with Akshay Kumar in the special appearance, ‘The Shaukeens’ is a remake of Basu Chatterjee's hit movie ‘Shaukeen’.

According to Koimoi, the film had a slow start in the morning and its number only increased by the evening and it made an opening day business of only Rs 5 crore. The same day release ‘Rang Rasiya’ starring Nandana Sen and Randeep Hooda in the lead is the competitor of ‘The Shaukeens’. ‘Rang Rasiya’ opened with positive response from critics but scored very low.

‘The Shaukeens’ revolved around three aged Delhi-based businessmen looking out for fun and sex in Mauritius and the three of them fell for sexy Lisa Haydon.

Meanwhile, ‘The Shaukeens’ had to share theatre with Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’ released three weeks back. HNY became the fastest Bollywood movie to enter 100 crore club but still struggling to enter 200 crore club. It made Rs.194.50 crore in the third week.
