Azhar movie based on the biopic of Md. Azharuddin is doing a great business in the Indian market, and the boxoffice collections of the film are growing as per the expectations. Although the movie was expected to grow big on Saturday, it goes limited to 10%. Azhar collections are not mere strange but also raised a big question over the craze in cricket among Indian audience.
The slow performance of box office had hinted that the overall lifetime box office collections of the film are hardly going to cross 50 crores, which is yet a setback for the producers. The alarming situation comes as the business from songs had also reduced over the period of time. The screen count for Azhar movie was around 2500 screens throughout the country. Adding to 300 screens in the overseas market the film was released on over more than 2800 screens.
Emraan Hashmi starrer received decent response with now impressive growth in weekend. At domestic box office, it raked the business of 20.80 cr as weekend total, that includes 6.30 cr of Friday, 7 cr of Saturday and 7.50 cr of Sunday. Whereas from UAE-GCC, it recorded highest ever opening of Emraan’s career so far with 72.72 lacs.
On Monday it faced more than 60% of drop and minted the amount of 2.95 cr as its fourth day box office collection. On the next day i.e. Tuesday, it received slight more drop than yesterday and likely to add 2.70 cr* to its account as 5th day collection. Only 2 days left for this week and from next Friday another anticipated Hindi movie Sarbjit is scheduled to be released. After that, it won’t be easy for Emraan starrer to rake decent even.
