After a disastrous first weekend, the new releases of the week, Helicopter Eela, Tumbbad, Jalebi and FryDay, suffered a bigger blow at the box office on their first Monday yesterday.

The inevitable happened as they earned Rs45 lakh, Rs55 lakh, Rs25 lakh and Rs15 lakh on the day, respectively, as per figures shared by BoxOfficeIndia.com.

Helicopter Eela has so far made a total of Rs3.50 crore. Its cost of production is Rs20 crore. Hence, the Kajol-starrer is likely to be a loss for the producers.

So far, Tumbbad has performed the best of all the four films released last week. However, its numbers are still very low. Against a cost of production which is said to be Rs15 crore, the film has so far collected only Rs3.30 crore.
