    Ayushmann Khurrana An Action Hero Box Office 4th consecutive flop

    Ayushmann Khurrana made his Bollywood debut in 2012 with Shoojit Sircar's Vicky Donor alongside Yami Gautam and is counted among the most talented stars in the Hindi film industry.

    In a career spanning over a decade in films, the actor has delivered many hits including Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Andhadhun, Badhaai Ho, Bala, and Dream Girl among others.

    Besides his strong performances, Ayushmann's movies have always entertained moviegoers. However, the talented star is currently going through a rough phase as sadly all of his films released after the coronavirus pandemic have failed to set the cash registers ringing.

    Last week, Ayushmann's An Action Hero got released amid a decent buzz and huge expectations. As expected, the thriller received rave reviews from critics and they also praised the actor.

    However, the film was a non-starter and failed to witness the expected jumps over the first weekend. Even during the weekdays, it stayed on the lower levels and has turned out to be a huge commercial disappointment.

    In the first week of its release, An Action Hero did a business of Rs 8.75-9 crore (estimated) and is a total washout. The film's lifetime collection is now expected to wrap up at around Rs 12 crore. However, the final numbers are still awaited.

    Directed by Abhishek Kapoor, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui marked Ayushmann's comeback to the big screen after the pandemic. Co-starring Vaani Kapoor as a trans woman, the film got huge appreciation. However, it was a box office underperformer with a lifetime collection of Rs 28.26 crore (nett) in India.

    Anek and Doctor G Were Disasters Too

    Anek was Ayushmann's first release of 2021, however, it turned out to be a box office disaster despite rave reviews and couldn't even cross the Rs 10 crore mark. Doctor G, also starring Rakul Preet Singh and Shefali Shah, too failed commercially even after a decent first weekend.
