Ranbir Kapoor's "Besharam" has crashed completely at the domestic box office. The action comedy film only minted approximately ₹3.10 crore from second weekend in India.
The total of "Besharam" after 10 days stands at ₹58.46 crore. After the release of comedy film "War Chhod Na Yaar", the collection of Ranbir's film came down by 85 to 90 percent.
Made on a budget of ₹60 crore, "Besharam" requires another ₹2 crore to match the production cost. The film might still earn that amount before the end of second week, if it rakes in average ₹50 lakh per day.
It is expected to earn decent figures on Monday considering Dussehra holiday across the country. But after the release of "Boss" on 16 October, the collection of "Besharam" should fall drastically.
Even the new release "War Chhod Na Yaar" has failed to attract crowd during its opening weekend run at the box office.
The film, which is touted as India's first ever war comedy, has received good reviews from both critics and audience. But the film failed to make a mark at the collection centers.
It raked in ₹4.50 crore from the first day in Indian markets, despite being a solo release. The three-day breakup of the film is: Friday ₹1.3 crore, Saturday ₹1.5 crore and Sunday ₹1.7 crore.
"Witnessed marginal growth over the weekend, but the jump in business was clearly missing. With a biggie arriving on Wednesday ["Boss"], the business will get curtailed to an extent," trade analyst Taran Adarsh said.
"WCNY" has just two days - Monday and Tuesday - to rake in moolah from box office, because after the release of Akshay Kumar's "Boss" the collections of this war comedy could get affected drastically.
The film which is a satirical take on war features Sharman Joshi, Sanjay Mishra, Javed Jaffrey, Mukul Dev, Dalip Tahil and Soha Ali Khan in important roles.
