Much-talked about Bollywood movie Gulaab Gang, which released with Queen and Total Siyapaa, has failed to live upto the expectations of its makers. The Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla starrer has made an average collection at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. While Queen topped the domestic business chart, the female-centric movie has landed in the second place.
The makers of Gulaab Gang had huge amount of promotions for it. In addition, its promos had added lot of hype to the film. Trade expert predicted that it would start with a bang and lead the race. But to everyone's surprise, the movie opened to a lukewarm response and failed to show a big leap on Saturday and Sunday. The film has collected approximately Rs 8.91 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 2.41 cr on Fri, Rs 3 cr on Sat and Rs 3.50 cr on Sun.
Comparing its business with Kangna Ranaut's Queen, Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh writes, "Gulaab Gang was not as lucky, although the business did escalate [albeit marginally] over the weekend. The confusion over its release made a dent in its business, since a section of the audience wasn't aware that film had released on Friday."
