Ranbir Kapoor's action comedy film "Besharam" has crashed at the box office in the Indian markets. The film's collection started falling from the second day of its release and since then has remained constantly on the lower side.
"Besharam" directed by Abhinav Kashyap has raked in just ₹53.82 crore in eight days since its release in Indian markets.
The eight day breakup of the film provided by Taran Adarsh is: Wednesday ₹21.56 crore, Thursday ₹7.13 crore, Friday ₹5.68 crore, Saturday ₹5.94 crore, Sunday ₹7.38 crore, Monday ₹2.43 crore, Tuesday ₹1.98 crore and Wednesday ₹1.72 crore.
Being the solo release on national holiday, "Besharam" was expected to rake in more money from box offices, but the negative reviews and word of mouth has proved quite harmful for the film.
The collections are not up to the mark, but the film still managed to break the domestic collections of "Kai Po Che" and Ajay Devgn starrer "Himmatwala" which had minted around ₹48 crore and ₹47 crore, respectively.
After the disappointing box office collection, "Besharam" has been tagged as Ranbir's one of the worst films ever. His first film "Saawariya" which was released in 2007 performed pretty well at box offices.
"Saawariya" apparently raked in approximately ₹50 crore in its four weeks run from Indian markets, which is still pretty good considering it was released six years ago.
Meanwhile, the poor performance of the action comedy also starring Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor and Pallavi Sharda has given a hope to the upcoming war comedy film "War Chhod Na Yaar" which is slated to release on 11 October.
