Seven new releases on Friday have affected Akshay Kumar's "Boss" collection at collection centers in India.
"Amdavad Junction", "Bull Bulbul Bandook", "Huff! - It's Too Much", "Ishk Actually", "Mickey Virus", "Sooper Se Ooper" and "Wake Up India" hit screens yesterday, but only Manish Paul starrer "Mickey Virus" opened to a good response.
Comedy thriller "Mickey Virus" has raked in ₹1.5 crore on first day from around 1000 screens.
"Mickey Virus" is the debut film of Manish Paul and Elli Avram as actors and Saurabh Varma as director. Since it was set in the backdrop of Delhi, the film has performed well in the north circuits especially Delhi and Punjab.
With positive reviews, the business of the film is expected to increase over the weekend. The other six releases had a lukewarm response at the box office.
Meanwhile, previous week's release "Boss" starring Akshay in the main role has dropped to its lowest on second Friday at the domestic box office. The action comedy film has earned in the range of ₹80- ₹90 lakh on Friday.
The overall domestic figure of the film has surpassed the ₹50 crore mark, but the box office performance of the film is very bad. This is Akshay's second consecutive film that has received poor response at the box office, after "Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai Dobaara".
Now, all the seven new releases, "Boss" and "Shahid" has one week more to rake in their best. After the release of Hrithik Roshan's "Krrish 3" on 1 November, the collection of all the previous films will go down drastically.
