Here are the box office reports of Hindi films "Boss", "Mickey Virus" and "Shahid"
Akshay Kumar's "Boss" has witnessed a significant drop in its collections during the second weekend.
"Boss", which released on 16 October, earned ₹12.75 crore on its opening day in India. The film received mixed reviews (mostly negative feedback) which has affected its collections. The action-packed entertainer has crossed the ₹50-crore mark in India but its overall performance has been pretty low, considering the film was a solo big release.
The film was expected to break Akshay's flop streak, but it failed to do so. "Boss" has been Akshay's third release of the year, following "Special 26" and "Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara!" (OUATIMD). While "Special 26" has done good business at the box office, "OUATIMD" failed to set the cash registers ringing.
"Boss" too has not lived up to the expectations, delivering a poor performance at the box office. With "Krrish 3" releasing for Diwali, the film's screen count is likely to go down, which would affect its collections further.
TV anchor Manish Paul made his Bollywood debut with "Mickey Virus", which hit the screens on 25 October.
A total of seven films released on the same day battling for enough screen space. Barring "Mickey Virus", none of the films were able to make a mark at the box office.
"Mickey Virus" opened to a good start on the first day of its release earning ₹1.35 crore. According to early estimates, the film's first weekend collections stand at ₹4.75 crore nett, reported film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
"#MickeyVirus collected Rs. 4.75 cr [early estimates] nett in its opening weekend. Breakup: Fri 1.35 cr, Sat 1.60 cr, Sun 1.80 cr," Taran tweeted.
However, the film had a dull start at the overseas markets. The Manish Paul starrer grossed ₹14.83 lakh from 48 screens in its first weekend at the US box office.
"Shahid", starring Rajkumar Yadav and Tigmanshu Dhulia, has witnessed a considerable drop in collections in its second weekend. According to Taran Adarsh, the film collected ₹25 lakh in its second weekend. Its total collections are pegged at ₹3.40 crore nett.
