Saif Ali Khan's latest action drama "Bullett Raja" has sunk at theaters in India, after entering into its second week. "Bullett Raja" performed poorly even in the overseas market raking in just ₹1.7 crore from UK, Australia and New Zealand box offices.
At several circuits "Ram-leela", which was released on 15 November, is dominating over "Bullett Raja". "Ram-leela" has entered in its fourth week run at box offices, but is still fetching great numbers at box offices.
Tigmanshu Dhulia's directorial film was among the least expected films to falter at the box offices. "Bullett Raja" is Tigmanshu's most commercial film and was expected to do well because of the lead pair.
After almost eight years, Saif was seen in rustic and rugged look. He last sported that earthy look in "Omkara" which was well appreciated and loved by audiences.
But this time, neither the story nor the look gained audience attention at box offices. However, Tigmanshu is still hopeful that his film will pick up at the box offices.
"The film has done well in the single screens and in cities like Allahabad and Lucknow in UP, but has not fared well in the multiplexes. Let's wait and watch as my films generally take time to pick up," the director told Indian Express in an interview.
Meanwhile, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh starrer "Goliyon ki Rasleela Ram-leela" is still creating waves at the box offices.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed epic love story has managed to amass ₹1.75 crore in its fourth weekend from Indian markets. The overall total of the film at domestic box office is more than ₹113.75 crore.
