Also releasing in the Bollywood market today in the English film, “Kingsmen: The Golden Circle“. In today’s batch releases, none are expected to make much of a showing at the box office. It’s nearly October, and nearly time for the third-quarter holiday hits season to begin. It gets started next Friday, with the release of “Judwaa 2”.
At the end of its first week, “Simran” has collected Rs. 15.48 * crore. Though Kangana’s “Simran” and “Queen” (2014) had both earned 10 crore for opening weekend, “Simran” has now fallen behind for first week collections. “Queen” had Rs. 18.80 at the end of its first week. It doesn’t look like “Simran” will repeat “Queen’s” 61-crore lifetime collection. With footfalls already trailing off, it may not even recover its 30-crore budget.
Though final numbers are still outstanding, it looks like opening week figures for “Lucknow Central” are right around 12 crore. Farhan Akhtar’s newest film with a music band theme is not impressing movie-goers. After the failures of both “Rock On 2” and “Lucknow Central“, it might be time for Farhan to consider a break from the music-themed film, and pursue another role like “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag“. It’s a shame to say this, however, since Farhan is a bright light in the music scene, and it’s clearly his passion.
“Shubh Mangal Saavdhan” managed a final note in the box office news this week, as it crossed the 40 crore mark! With a last-reported figure of Rs. 40.96 crore (3 days ago), it has generously exceeded its 24-crore budget and is one of only two films considered a hit since May of this year.
