Saif Ali Khan's action thriller "Bullett Raja" has not shown any improvement in its earnings at collection centres in India on its second day of theatrical run.
The film's collections on the opening day and Saturday were in the same range. The film raked in ₹6.5 crore on Friday and ₹7 crore on Saturday, taking its overall total to ₹13.5 crore, according to Bollywood Hungama.
Tigmanshu Dhulia's directorial film opened to average response on the first day and failed to pick up the following day. The film, majorly shot in North India, was expected to mint figures from the north circuits, especially UP and Bihar.
The Saif Ali Khan starrer registered below average occupancy in Mumbai, but it slightly picked up on Saturday. In Delhi, UP and other north circuits, the film's performance on Saturday was better than Friday's business to some extent.
The collections may go up on Sunday, but overall the film's performance is below the mark.
Tigmanshu's past films like "Paan Singh Tomar" and "Saheb Biwi and Gangster" also did not fare well at the box office, but were lauded by critics for their storyline. "Bullett Raja" is also expected to show an average performance at the box office.
This is the first time Tigmanshu has worked with Saif and Sonakshi Sinha for the action thriller. Saif has earlier expressed his desire to work with the director.
"I wanted to work with Tigmanshu he is quite multiplex and single screen type director. 'Bullett Raja' is like single screen kind of film. If the film doesn't do well.. Then I will be in trouble. I am looking to do work that is slightly out of my comfort zone, I hope it works for me," Saif told Press Trust of India.
