The box office collection of Ranveer Singh's "Kill Dil" has not been up to the mark in its opening week in Indian markets.
The action romantic thriller, also starring Parineeti Chopra in the female lead role, minted ₹29.28 crore from the domestic box office in its debut week, according to Bollywood Hungama.
"Kill Dil" opening week total could have been better if the movie had maintained a strong hold at the box office during weekdays. However, the collection dropped by 50% on the first weekday, i.e. on Monday in India.
The film did not show much improvement in its business, as word of mouth was also not in its favour.
"Kill Dil" features Ranveer, Parineeti, Govinda and Ali Zafar in key roles. The film was released in around 1700 screens in India last week. Due to limited screen count also the business remained on the lower side.
Meanwhile, here is the opening week break-up of the film: Friday ₹6.53 crore, Saturday ₹6.35 crore, Sunday ₹7.30 crore, Monday ₹2.80 crore, Tuesday ₹2.45 crore, Wednesday ₹2.05 crore and Thursday ₹1.80 crore.
Happy New Year
Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer "Happy New Year" finished its fourth week in India. The musical heist drama's collection declined after second week, and it continues to remain on the lower side until now.
The film will probably end its theatrical run and rest with the second highest grossing film title at the box office. The lifetime run of "Happy New Year" stands at approximately ₹203 crore.
Meanwhile, Farah Khan's directorial film has made its way to the Marrakech International Film Festival. "Happy New Year", starring Shah Rukh, Deepika, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani and Vivaan Shah, has been officially invited at the 14th edition of Marrakech International Film Festival, which opens on 5 December.
"We are very happy to screen HNY at the Marrakech International Film Festival. It will be one the highlights of the Festival. Farah Khan, Abhishek Bachchan and Boman Irani will introduce the film on the famous Jemaa El Fna Square in front of thousands of people," Mélita Toscan du Plantier, director of film festival, said.
"It will be Farah's first time at the Festival as Abhishek came in 2003 and Boman in 2012 for the Tribute to Indian Cinema. It is the only Indian film screened on the Square this year as every night an actor presents a film like Viggo Mortensen, Jeremy Irons, Adel Imam, etc," the director added.
