Haider film, directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, starring Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor has dipped in its performance at the Indian Box Office. The film has won the hearts of the audience and the critics, yet people are not rushing to theatres to watch this magnum opus.
Haider based on Willaim Shakespeare's Hamlet was made
on a very low budget of Rs 24 crores, so it did not need a big
opening like Bang Bang to make profit, Haider with a small
opening collection of Rs 6.14 crores managed to recover the cost of
the film within 4 days of the movie's release. On Day 2 (Friday),
the collection was Rs 6.93 crores, on Saturday it was Rs 6.38
crores and finaly on Sunday it collected Rs 7.33 crores.
According to trade experts Monday being a semi holiday owing to
Bakri Eid, the film was supposed to pick up with it's Box Office
collection and gross around Rs 7.5 crores but unfortunately it
didn't fare as expected and the film's collection fell to a very
low Rs 5.03 crores.
With Tuesday being a working day, Haider could not
gross much and collected around Rs 3-4 crores approximately,
bringing the total Box Office collection at the domestic market to
Rs 35.81 crores. On Tuesday the foot-halls reduced in metros, but
the film has been accepted well, compared to the dull response in
the mass circuits.
The trade figures outside Indian until Monday were as follows,
the film has managed to collect Rs 3.31 crores in North America
(USA and Canada), around Rs 0.87 crores in United Kingdom, around
Rs 1.97 crores in United Arab Emirates / G.C.C and around Rs 0.36
crores in Australia.
So now adding this to the Indian domestic collections the film's
6 days worldwide Box Office collections is Rs 44 crores. at the end
of this week, the film will manage to hit the Rs 50 crore mark.
