Mumbai: Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan's latest combo movie Ghanchakkar has not got an earth-shattering response like their last outing The Dirty Picture. Although the movie has done a decent collection at the Indian Box Office on its opening day, it has failed to smash the first day business record of the latter.
Emraan-Vidya's last outing The Dirty Picture was a huge hit at the Indian Box Office and its success has added lot of hype and expectations to their next combo movie Ghanchakkar. Trade experts had predicted that it would get an overwhelming response at the ticket counters and break the record of their previous outing.
Surprisingly, Ghanchakkar opened to a lackluster response at single screens in morning and afternoon shows on Friday. Although the film registered slightly better occupancy in multiplexes when compared to single screens, its overall business was below the mark. However, the movie picked up very well in the evening and night shows. It has collected Rs 7.2 crores nett at the Indian Box Office on the first day of its release.
But Ghanchakkar has failed to shatter the opening day record of The Dirty Picture, which had raked in Rs 9.25 crore net at the domestic Box Office on the first day of its release. Trade experts feel the movie will witness big leap on Saturday and Sunday. It should be seen whether it will be able to break the first weekend record of the latter.
