In her 12 years' acting career, the girlfriend of Saif Ali Khan has been a part of four 100 crore movies in Hindi. Kareena first joined the league with Aamir Khan's 3 Idiots in 2009. Later, three of her other movies like Golmaal 3 (2010), Bodyguard (2011) and Ra.One (2011) entered this club. Trade experts say that it was Bollywood superstars Ajay Devgn, Aamir, Salman and Shahrukh Khan, whose star power and huge fan following made them achieve this magic figure, but Kareena added a least to them.
Earlier this year, Kareena had a big opportunity to prove them
wrong. She was expected to strike gold with her movie Ek Main
Aur Ekk Tu with budding star Imran Khan. The film did good
business at the Box Office, but it was not up to the image of this
superstar actress. It proved that independently, she cannot take
the film forward at the collection centres.
Kareena's latest movie Heroine is a female centric
movie and its success mainly depends on her and her star power.
Does she really have that big power and huge fan following to run
the show? The first weekend numbers of Heroine clearly say
that she does not have the power. She has failed to drive the mass
crazy towards the theatres in the opening weekend.
The Madhur Bhandarkar directed movie had
huge hype before its release and was expected to score a half
century in its opening weekend, but it has raked in half of the
half century. Its weekdays business shows that it will not surpass
this 50 crore mark in the first week. Now, will Kareena score a
fifth century with Heroine at the Indian Box
However, Heroine has collected Rs 25 crores at the Box
Office in India in the first week. Its business fell down by 50% on
Monday with its fifth day collection reaching Rs 3.75 crores. If
the movie runs at this pace, it might gross Rs 40 crores in the
first week. It has big threat from Akshay Kumar's OMG Oh My
God, and Kamaal Damaal, which are hitting the screens
this weekend and English Vinglish, which will release next
As per the current trends, if a movie has to join the 100 crore
club, it needs to do extremely well in the first week and its
performance in the next two to three weeks would add to its
success. But Heroine has already failed to make it big at
the Box Office and has threats in next weeks also. Trade experts
say that Kareena Kapoor will not be able to score her fifth century
with Heroine at the domestic Box Office.
