Box office: Qarib Qarib Singlle earns low, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana struggles
Mumbai - 17 Nov 2017 12:48 IST
Tanuja Chandra’s Qarib Qarib Singlle hasn’t earned a good number at the Indian box office in its first week. The film, starring Irrfan Khan and malayalam actress Parvathy, made only Rs12.25 crore, approximately, despite positive reviews and word-of-mouth.
The film had earned a fairly decent amount in its first weekend, amassing Rs8.20 crore.
It opened low with Rs1.70 crore, but saw improvement in the next two days. Hence, the downward steering of the numbers during the week comes as a surprise.
Qarib Qarib Singlle has reportedly been made at a cost of Rs20 crore (including prints and advertisement). With only Rs12.25 crore in its earnings kitty right now, the romantic comedy has a bleak future at the box office.
Ratnaa Sinha’s directorial debut film Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana has fared even worse. The film, starring Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Kharbanda, managed to make only Rs6.50 crore in the first week.
As per trade sources, the film is made on a budget of Rs15 crore. Since it has earned less than half of the amount in the entire first week, its fate is pretty much sealed.
Meanwhile, Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again has earned Rs5 crore in its fourth week. The total collection of the film, starring Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Tabu, Kunal Kemmu, Tusshar Kapoor, and Parineeti Chopra, now stands at Rs202.78 crore approximately.
