Akshay Kumar's "Boss" is reaching towards the half century mark at the domestic box office.

Till Tuesday (seventh day), "Boss" has scored in around ₹45.55 crore from theaters across India. On Monday the film collected ₹3.25 crore, and on Tuesday it minted ₹2.3 crore. During the five-day extended weekend, the film earned ₹40.75 crore.

"#Boss collected approx ₹40.75 cr nett in its 5-day weekend [Wed to Sun]. Breakup: Wed 12.75 cr, Thu 8 cr, Fri 6 cr, Sat 6 cr, Sun 8 cr," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.

Although, the collection of "Boss" has declined significantly, it is still doing better than Ranbir Kapoor's "Besharam".

Only the opening day (2 October) collection of "Besharam" was fantastic, raking in over ₹21 crore. But the earnings were low in the next days. Compared to "Besharam", Akshay's film released in relatively less number of screens and that too on just a semi-holiday.

The first day collection of "Boss" was just ₹12 crore but over the weekend the action comedy performed better than Ranbir's flick.

The poor performance of the film at the box office has again proved that the decision, to make a mid-week release, was a bad call from the makers .
