New Bollywood release Bewakoofiyaan has concluded the first weekend with an average collection at the Indian Box Office. The Ayushmann Khurrana and Sonam Kapoor starrer romantic comedy, which was one of the most hyped movies, has been affected by exam fever. Meanwhile, Queen, which has once again topped the business chart in second weekend, also ate a major chunk of its revenue.
Bewakoofiyaan, which was expected to start with a bang, opened to a lukewarm response on Friday. Trade experts predicted that it would pick up on the following days, but the film failed to show a big leap on Saturday and Sunday. The movie has collected approximately Rs 7.74 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 2.23 cr on Fri, Rs 2.51 cr on Sat and Rs 3 cr on Sun.
Bollywood trade expert Taran Adarsh writes, "Bewakoofiyaan has cost Rs 14 cr to make, with an additional Rs 8 cr being spent on P&A [total cost: Rs 22 cr]. The makers have already recovered a substantial chunk of investment via sale of Satellite Rights. Recovering the balance amount from India and Overseas theatrical, Audio and Home Video shouldn't be a problem for YRF. But one definitely expected more!"
