Besharam Third Day Collections: Early Estimate

Besharam continued its disastrous run at the box office on Friday, as the Abhinav Kashyap film witnessed further drops in key centres. After a good start on the first day (19.73 crore) the film dropped by more than 65% on its second day with all India net business of 6.65 crore. No other film that opened so big, has dropped to such low numbers a day after its release. The impact of negative word-of-mouth publicity has been quick and deadly!

The downward trend continued on Friday too, as Besharam fell by 20-30% in several centres. As per early estimates based on collections from a few centres, the film has collected around 5 – 5.5 crore on its third day to take its total to around 32 crore net. It was a holiday in some parts of the country, so it remains to be seen if business has picked up in those areas.

To put things into perspective, the 3rd day collections of Besharam is lower than the 11th day (i.e second Monday) business of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani!

All-India distributors Reliance Entertainment who have invested around 98 crore on the film, will end up losing about 30 crore of their investment. Exhibitors have no film to bring in the audience, as Grand Masti in its 4th week of release is losing steam. The only film that is currently doing well is The Lunchbox, but its business is limited to major cities only.

Unless Besharam miraculously picks up over the weekend and sustains over the weekdays (highly unlikely), the dry spell will continue for the next 11 days before Akshay Kumar’s Boss hits theatres!



  • Abhinav is in the industry only because of salman khan , at the time of realease of d2 he was criticising the movie, now see what he has done with his own film. thank god salman didn’t agree with his direction n changed many things in dabangg … Arbaaz khan is much better than him

  • Other sites are predicting 11-12 crore business on Friday.
    I dont know why Indicine is bent on posting decreased collections of Besharam….
    I seems some anti-Ranbir people have been writing articles fro Besharam on Indicine.
    They are the “certain forces” Abhinav Kashyap said are trying to increase negativity against the film…

  • A Besharam film by a Besharam actor. Everyone know this film would be Himmatwala 2. So not surprised by its failure.

  • Abhinav Kashyap saved Salman’s career otherwise he would be smaller than Shahid Kapoor today….
    SRK is not a joker like Salman.
    Salman acts like a joker in Ready, Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger thats why people like watching him.
    SRK is a classy act, not a joker like Salman

  • When asked by a reader, “Will it be Dhoom 3 or Krrish 3 that will break the opening record of Ek Tha Tiger?” a leading website answered, “It may be Besharam. Infact Besharam may break all records including 3 Idiots lifetime record and the likes of Krrish 3 and Dhoom 3 may be chasing Besharam instead of Ek Tha Tiger opening or 3 Idiots lifetime.”

    When I read in last week of July-13, I was surprized. How could the website forgot to mention Chennai Express which was set for release on 9th August!! The website had simply forgotten the power of SRK, Deepika and Rohit!!
    RK is the best actor among the new generation actors, but I still feel the Khans are more reliable as far box office is concerned.

  • this is not the end of the world
    Ranbir can well bounce back with a bang
    this happens to anyone
    so just chill guys!

  • BESHRAMs full credit goes to ABHINAV KASHYAP he is sole responsible for this ranbir and his family had done their job and now its bad on criticizing certain fans Today ABHINAV got name and fame due to Salman fans he should fell grateful for them and criticizing srk song also he has done mistake now after failure he is giving wrong explanations

    Will see Ranbir Come Back for sure He has good lineup like ROY,Bombay Velvet,Jaggas Jassos,Imtiaz ali next and Ayans superhero flick makes him huge come back As a pure Hrithik Fan i m saying one day Ranbir reaches no 1 spot for sure but he has to change his off screen image i hope he will change for sure
    So as a Hrithik fan im proud of being Hrithikian and also same goes to ranbir fans as they were also feel proud to be Ranbirs fan at early age he had achieved really a big thing

    Finally RANBIR a true Superstar and Great Actor

  • @Indicine can you please tell me what is the difference between below average,average,above average and semihit.

  • @nipun yes same like ur kind of guys before the release of Besharam said that Besharam with thrash CE record. Keep dreaming kidoo. Cheerrrs

  • @Indicine. u forgot ETT. after 32.92 CRORES on first day it dropped to around 12 CRORES on second.
    that’s also drop of around 65 percent. though the film collected lot just because of SALMAN.

  • Ranbir kapoor has been in this industry for only five years & achieved what the khan trio has achieved after 20 to 25 years so that shows that he a bigger star than these the time ranbir completes 25 years in cinema he would have became the god of indian cinema so such small failures would not affect him in any way!

  • @IAmTheVastUniverse
    I think you are severely affected with Ranbir-mania. That’s why you can’t simply accept the truth that Ranbir has failed miserably this time. Actually, Indicine shows a more crores to Besharam business has good words for it. to the See what has to say:

    Besharam Goes Down Further On Friday
    Saturday 5th October 2013 11.00 IST
    Besharam fell another 15% on Friday after the epic 65% crash on Thursday. The collections on Friday were around 5.75 crore nett which takes it 3 day total to 31.50 crore nett.

    BESHARAM Crashes WARNING Has Low First Week
    Saturday 5th October 2013 09.00 IST
    Saturday and Sunday should see better collections but when collections are already down to the 6 crore nett levels it all becomes irrelevant. Saturday may be up a little or in the same range while Sunday should be up by 10-15% so the film is looking to add another 13 crore nett which would give it a five day weekend of around 45 crore nett.

    Even if the film had fallen 50% on day two it could have been safe as it would have got a 50 crore share while now it is losses all around with the lifetime share struggling to hit even 35 crore.

    Besharam crashed after a strong start. The warning signs were there on day one as collections came off noticeably in the evening. The film saw one of the biggest day to days drops at 65%. The business over the first two days was a little under 26 crore nett. FLOP

  • At the time of yjhd released when i said that Ranbir is bigger superstar than Srk,salman,Amir,hritik sorry sorry to all now i bring back my words this time i say superstars are only srk,salman,hritik& aamir. Now i think the reason behind yjhd success are aditya roy kapoor,deepika padukone,and karan zohar,s dedications

    • To answer a few questions..

      @IAmTheVastUniverse, I dont think Besharam will manage to collect 11-12 crore even on Sunday. Any site that has posted those figures for Friday is fake.

      @Noam: Incorrect. Ek Tha Tiger collected Rs 32.92 crore on Day 1 and followed it up with 14.52 crore on Day 2. Drop of 55% is acceptable, because the first day business was very close to capacity. Remember, Besharam had a wider release than Ek Tha Tiger. So the business on its opening day itself was around 50-55%. But falling down to 6 crore on 3550 screens is a new low for any film ever. Even Himmatwala collected about 2 cr more than Besharam on Day 2.

      We are simply reporting facts here, nothing against Ranbir Kapoor or Abhinav Kashyap.

  • @sahir:
    i never said besharam would be a bb or superhit okay.i just admire talented fellows like ranbir kapoor. it’s ur failure that u can’t like talents like hro and rk.

  • The two most bankable stars are undoubtedly Salman and Shahrukh. Both have consistently delivered 100 crore grossers with ease in the last few years. But since you have specifically asked us to pick just one actor (at the risk of being called biased by those who dislike him) it has to be Shahrukh Khan. For the simple reason that he has attempted different genres. Even some of his films that were universally ridiculed have managed to collect more than 100 crore in India.

    Ra One (superhero) – With budget constraints, superhero films are risky. Ra One was slammed by the critics, ridiculed on social media.. but by the end of its run the film collected more than 200 crores worldwide.

    Don 2 (thriller) – Had little or no mass-appeal and was mainly targeted towards the multiplex audience. The film had no songs, critics didn’t praise it either. But, 100 cr+ in India, 200 cr+ worldwide.

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan (romance) – Yash Chopra tragically passed away a month before the film’s release, A.R. Rahman’s music was way below expectations, faced stiff competition from a massy-entertainer like Son Of Sardaar, lost a few crores due to Bal Thackerey’s death.. But the result? 200 crore+ worldwide

    Then came Chennai Express, which got the best release date and the rest is history.

    Yes, Salman has been much more successful at the domestic box office. His last 5 films have all been blockbusters, but most belong to the same genre which is a mixture of action, comedy and romance. Aamir has a massive audience too, and Talaash would have easily collected 100 cr+ if it released during a holiday weekend without competition from so many films. But since it didn’t cross 100, we cannot even consider him. Ranbir’s Besharam is likely to wrap up under 100 and Hrithik has only one film in the 100 crore club.

  • Guys!!…. Ranbir is one of the best actor in Bollywood… his latest film may get negative reviews due to a bad scripts …but he will soob recover his Superstar stat status in his next film. Nd Never mention EK THA Tiger.. Madras cafe deserved 100 cr than Ek tha tiger…!!

  • i think businiss will be grow on sat and sunday ranveer fans don’t take any tension because papa of three khan will come on dipawali with krrish 3 he will definatily set a record of 500carore. Hrithik Rules

  • Guys all of the above comments are totally stupid

  • @Ajay mishra,it will remain a dream for a superhero film in india to collect 500 cr,manta hu hrithik is a superstar bt his stardom is less than the khans’.to see dream to much is injurious to health,km kar k dkhu yar, agar swapna pura nehi hua 2 jyada impect parega,best of luck for krrish 3.we the fans of trio khans wont watch k3
