Befikre was one of the most awaited films of 2016. Yash Raj Films had done well to create continued momentum around the film by releasing one poster each every month. Considering the fact that Aditya Chopra was returning after 8 years and Ranveer Singh too had a biggie like Bajirao Mastani behind him, the film was red hot. Befikre is heading with a decent pace in weekdays.
After a strong opening in the time of demonetization, Yash Raj Films’ Befikre is now facing abrupt drops in its business graph. Being Ranveer Singh – Vaani Kapoor starrer and highly promoted, the movie was released with good excitement of fans and as expected registered fair opening business of box office across India as well as overseas.
Befikre has not received much positive reviews from critics but most of the audience reacted in its favor. This was the reason, it registered quite good business in the opening weekend. As always Ranveer Singh has stolen the show with his entertaining performance but still the movie seems failed to maintain the pace.
On Monday despite partial holiday on accounts of Milad-ul-Nabi, it reported almost 59% of drop than Friday and estimated to collect 5.20 crores* to its account. On the next day i.e. Tuesday, it started the day with almost similar occupancy and collected the amount of 4.72 crores* as its 5th day business. With this, the total domestic collection of Befikre has become 44.35 crores* and surpassed the lifetime total of Amitabh Bachchan’s Wazir (41.02 crores).
