How much did you earn in two days
While Shamshera opened at 10:25 a.m. at the box office, also on the second day of Saturday, the film only earned 10.5 crores without showing much growth. This is one of the lowest openings in Ranbir Kapoor’s career, as films released this year also drop significantly. Shamshera is a massive film made on a budget of 150 crores and the film has already shown signs of failing badly.
Ranbir couldn’t beat Karthik
Even before the release of Shamshera, everyone’s answer was stuck on one question: Will Ranbir Kapoor’s Shamshera opening beat Kartik Aaryan’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 opening? It should be noted that Karthik Aryan’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 was the biggest opening of this year so far. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 by Kartik Aaryan had a total opening of 14 crores at the box office.
behind on profits
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’s budget was 80 crores and the film earned 184 crores. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 had a 14 crore opening at the box office and so far it is the only Hindi film of the year to give the highest opening. Gangubai Kathiawadi is the third big movie this year after Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’s 184 crore opener and Akshay Kumar’s Bachchan Pandey opener of 13.5 crore.
Same opening as Gangubai
Interestingly, while Gangubai gave a 10.5 crore opening, Ranbir Kapoor’s Shamshera also gave a Shamshera opening in the same range. Shamshera recorded an overall occupancy of 14% in theaters on day one. Shamshera got off to a slow start on Friday July 22. The film started with an occupancy of around 9% in the morning shows as the day progressed, Shamshera recorded an occupancy of 11% in the afternoon and 14% in the evening. On the other hand, the film did not gain momentum even after dark and the film also recorded 22% occupancy in the night show.
Ranbir’s lowest opening
Significantly, this will be the fifth time in Ranbir Kapoor’s career that he can somehow reach the opening double digits. Prior to Shamshera’s 10.3 crore, Tamasha had 10.9 crore, Roy 10.4 crore, Rockstar 10.6 crore and Politics 10.5 crore. Rockstar and Tamasha were box office flops, while Roy and Politics were semi-hits. But the budget for none of these movies was even close to Shamshera.
thor love and thunder
While Bollywood films struggle for the opening and then for the box office, English films gain in smoke at the box office. Recently released Thor Love and Thunder has a total opening of 18 crores in India. The film grossed a total of 95 crores in India. At the same time, in Hindi as well, the film touches the figure of around 30 crores.
