Like every other Akshay Kumar movie this year (Chandni Chowk to China and Kambakht Ishq) Blue, which did great business in Week 1, has crashed in Week 2 of its release.
With no competition in the form of new releases this week, the business of Blue was expected to pick up during the weekend. Unfortunately the film didn’t pick up on Friday (approx 2 crores), crashed further on Saturday (approx 1.5 crores), picked up slightly on Sunday (approx 2.5 crores) but the writing was on the wall on Monday (less than 90 lakhs) when the movie dipped further.
As the 50 crore milestone look highly unlikely now, given the budget, Blue is yet another disappointment for the industry – from Akshay Kumar this year.
All the Best on the other hand has recorded fantastic collections (approx Rs 10 crores) during its second weekend and has easily won the Diwali battle! Main Aur Mrs Khanna is out of most theaters. Infact, Salman Khan previous release Wanted is doing better business and continues to rock in the Top 5.
