Bollywood movie Ek Tha Tiger (ETT), which has continued to dominate the Indian Box Office, has overpowered the new release Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi (SFKTNP) at the collection centres. The business of the Boman Irani and Farah Khan starrer film was severely affected by the Salman Khan's last week's film on the first day of its release.
Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi, which was one of the most-awaited film, opened to very dismal response at the Box Office on Friday. The Bela Sehgal debut directorial venture registered an average of 30% occupancy at both single screens and multiplexes on the first day. Although the movie did well in the metros, its overall collection seemed to be much below the expectations of the makers.
SFKTNP is a big budget movie, which had massive promotions prior its release. The producers of the film expected it to start with a bang and collected Rs 5 to 8 crores at the Box Office on its opening day. But it grossed approximately Rs 1.8 to 2 crore on Friday. If the makers have to recover its production cost, the movie has to show big jump in its business on Saturday and Sunday.
Whereas, previous week's release Ek Tha Tiger, which enjoyed an overwhelming response in the first week, is still keeping the bells ringing at the Box Office in the second weekend. The movie registered an average of 40% occupancy and added approximately Rs 4.53 crores on Friday to its 10-day total collection Rs 158.74 crores. It is likely to top the Box Office chart in the second weekend too. Stay locked to Box Office reports to read about latest collection updates.
