Shaandaar’ box office collections: Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt starrer earns Rs 20.65 cr
Shaandaar’ box office collections managed to rake in Rs 20.65 crore by day 2.Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer earned a whopping Rs 13.10 crore on opening day but dropped to Rs 7.55 crore on day 2. The film gathered a decent crowd in the morning shows with an occupancy rate of around 35% to race towards a day 1 triumph. And this it managed despite most reviewers panning the movie but day 2 box office collections took a nose-dive.
A good release date, great hype and publicity, striking chemistry between the lead pair and a solo release- Shaandaar had everything working in its favour. Yet the film could hardly make enough use of all that. But the good news for Alia Bhatt and Shahid Kapoor is that ‘Shaandaar’ has become the highest opening for both the actors!
‘Shaandaar’ opened well at the box office due to the Dussehra holiday across the country on day 1. The film enjoyed a good opening at major cities, including Mumbai, Delhi and others on day 1 but the drop in box office collections on day 2 is huge. Shahid and Alia’s film had an amazing buzz before it hit screens and it was expected to create a storm at the box office.
Though on a positive note, ‘Shaandaar’ has tattered the opening day’s box office collections of superstars like Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Roy’, Akshay Kumar’s ‘Baby’ and ‘Gabbar Is Back’, Ranveer Singh’s ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ and Kapil Sharma’s ‘Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon’, making it the sixth highest box office opener of 2015.
From average to negative reviews for the film, and critics almost panning the film, ‘Shaandaar ‘ is not expected to grow on a good word of mouth now. The box office collections might plunge over the weekend and the film now needs to maintain a consistent figure in the next two days to put up a good show at the box office.
‘Shaandaar’ is directed by Vikas Bahl who is still enjoying the legacy of his film ‘Queen’, which was a huge blockbuster. The film also stars actors Sanjay Kapoor, Pankaj Kapoor and also a special appearance by Karan Johar.
