Akshay Kumar's latest outing Boss has continued to slide downwards at the Indian Box Office on the weekdays. Although it has topped the domestic business chart, the collection of the full-on masala entertainer is not upto the mark. Its seven days collection is not even equal to the first weekend earning of Akki's Rowdy Rathore, which had raked in Rs 48.3 crores in the (three days) first weekend.
Rowdy Rathore, which was released in 2500 screens on June 1 in 2012, had opened to an amazing response and maintained rock-steady through out the week. The Hindi remake of Telugu movie Vikramarkudu had collected Rs 79.52 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in (seven days) first week. Its breakup was 15.1 cr on Fri, 14.7 cr on Sat, 18.5 cr on Sun, 9.5 cr on Mon, 8.12 cr on Tue, 7.1 cr on Wed, 6.5 cr Thu.
Whereas Boss, which released in 3000 screens, was expected to break all the records of Rowdy Rathore. Although everything was going in its favour, the movie failed to raise beyond the bars. Despite having strong word of mouth, the film has failed to beat the records of Akshay Kumar's last hit film.
Boss opened to decent response across the country on Wednesday, but instead of going upwards, its business slipped considerably over the weekend. It further dipped on the weekdays. The movie has collected approximately Rs. 45.55 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in seven days. Its breakup is Rs 12.75 cr on Wed, Rs 8 cr on Thu, Rs 6 cr on Fri, Rs 6 cr on Sat, Rs 8 cr on Sun, Rs 2.5 on Mon and Rs 2.3 cr on Tue.
