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."
