A film that looked promising pre-release, has failed to excite the audience on release. Akshay Kumar’s Boss was expected to collect 45-50 crore in its first extended weekend, which included a holiday for Bakrid.
The film started well at single-screens, but multiplex business throughout the 5-day weekend, especially in big cities, was way below-the-mark.
If Boss was put up reasonably good collections for the weekend, business on Saturday and Sunday was always going to be important. On Saturday, the film dropped at single-screens, but picked up at centres where it wasn’t faring too well.
Collections on Sunday were decent too, but slightly lower than Thursday which was a working day. Monday has witnessed a drop, morning shows were around 40% down from Friday, so all-India business should be around 3 crore net.
Boss will collect around 50 crore in its first extended week (9 days) and finish with lifetime collections of less than 60 crore net.
