Entertainment has a good second weekend at the box office

Entertainment‘Entertainment’ has managed to survive the onslaught of a big film like ‘Singham Returns’ to collect around around 9 crore in its second weekend at the box office. The 10-day collections of the film is Rs 65.3 crore, which is much lower than the weekend total of ‘Singham Returns’.

The damage was done in the first week itself when the film failed to put up a big enough total. The multiplex audience simply did not come out in big enough numbers, probably due to the fact that Salman Khan’s ‘Kick’ released just a couple of weeks ago and ‘Singham Returns’ was supposed to release a week after.

Akshay has one more release to go this year and even that film doesn’t have the best of release dates. ‘The Shaukeens’ is tentatively scheduled to release on November 7th 2014, two weeks after Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’ and on the same day as Ajay Devgn’s ‘Action Jackson’.

Unless Akshay starrers start getting bigger initials at multiplexes, his films would rely on word-of-mouth publicity to recover costs like ‘Holiday: A Solider Is Never Off Duty’.

In short, ‘Entertainment’ was a film that deserved better at the box office. Unfortunately, it would end its run as an average grosser at best.

  • The Shaukeens is not an Akshay film so correct it.
    He is there only in Cameo.His next film is Gabbar which releases next year.
    Who wrote this article??????

  • I have heard that Akki has just 10 min. role in “The Shaukeens”…he is’nt the lead actor in that film…

    • The Shaukeens will be promoted like OMG: Oh My God was.. It is a small role, but Akshay is in the film to bring in the audience. His character will also be longer than Mithun’s in the original.

  • top five superstars according to me was Salman, aamir, srk, ajay and akshay and then comes hrithik.others are only stars like ranbir, ranveer, arjun and varun etc

  • Then Billu was also SRK’s film…he had more than enough role and was also dancing with every heroine…

  • HNy trailer was a huge failure. Inspite of huge fake buzz created by Srk and his fans on twitter the 3 mins Trailer was a huge flop.
    The trailer was rejected everywhere, it was released on more than 3 channels yet the combined views of the 3 were less than 2 million.

  • @indicine u mean shauqeen too is a remake.??
    huhh god save akshay..what hez doing.
    n I dont think he shd release it in november whether its a small role or a full fledged one.
    he may release it sometime in february

  • Akshay is back on track. 60 to 70cr is the range of Akki.


    Akshay need to rethink about his career. He should left all crap movies. And just need to work on Warrior, RR-2,HF-3 & Sidharth Anand’s Next. He should left rest all. Otherwise new comers will overtake him in a big way.

  • It is a sad affair for Akshay kumar. ajay Devgn were far behind to him in stardom. But now akshay movie’s life time is less than ajay’s first weekend collection. Excessive greed for money, choosing wrong script again and again make him, that he is today. Feeling sad for him.

  • Akki is satisfied with average verdict coz he also knows that it is ideal result for his films, after all he is doing 4 films per year.

  • And unless Akshay stops signing poor scripts like Joker, 786, OUATIMD and different films with same genre and character, he will not get big opening.
    Holiday was another film which deserved better opening and overall collections but Akshay’s previous films along with poor music had negative impact on it.

    The Shaukeens will be WOM film, it will depend on Akshay to open decently and content to remain steady like OMG! I expect it to be a good film as the original Shaukeen was also good.

    Gabbar and Warrior can take big opening and emerge as blockbusters if everything goes well.

  • akki needs to choose right scripts and I have always seen that akki doesn’t promote his movies aggressively
    waiting for Gabbar Housefull 3 and Rowdy Rathore 2
    I hope all goes well between akki and Siddharth anand as they are going to make high octane action movie that will be a huge

    more important I also want akki to change is hairstyle …..

  • Its true that Akshay’s next flick is Gabbar which will Explode the theaters 26 Jan, 2015 Republic Day in India. so hope that movie will definitely Blockbuster or Superhit…

    Akki just make a cameo in The Shaukeens

  • Yes entertainment deserved to be a hit but sadly it won’t simply because of some ridiculous decision making process..ajay devgan has benefited big time. From Singham returned and hence action Jackson will also open well at the box office..let’s see whether the makers of shaukeen push the film further or they stick to 7th November and face a clash

  • akki is big star.he is just not able to release his movies in national holiday otherwise he could also score with 25 to 30 cr in a single day.remember that he is only superstar after manoj kumar to deliver 4 superhits in a single year which is a great achievement.

  • I want Entertainment to become a success. Akki is a hardworking guy. But he’s responsible for losing his stardom. See Holiday was released two months ago.
    Next week after the holiday release, he released Fugly. And then now, Entertainment sandwiched between Kick and Singham.

    Let’s see Sarkar’s Holiday Release ‘Six Losers in the Washing Machine’ can beat Salman’s Non-Holiday Release ‘Kick.’ Action Jackson will be released two after the Six Losers is released like Entertainment after Kick.
    If anything to go by its trailer which is Huge Flop, the Six Losers in the Washing Machine will remain as the Six Losers. Justin Bieber Wannabe Vivan Shah will be the worst debutant in decades to come.

  • Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Happy New Year that is due for a Diwali release in October is already making waves in the social media.
    Happy New Year’s trailer that was unveiled on YouTube on August 14, on the eve of Independence Day has nearly got 1.8 million views already.

    The trailer was also shared on Happy New Year’s official Facebook page and has got more than 2.5 million ‘likes’ and over 60,000 ‘shares’.
    “Happy New Year Trailer is outstanding!!!! Whopper blockbuster this Diwali!!!! (sic),” Karan Johar tweeted.
    Amitabh Bachchan also took to the micro-blogging site to shower praises on the Happy New Year trailer. “The trailor of Happy New Year!! Just simply stupendous .. Wohooo !! Farah and SRK .. and the entire team! (sic),” he said.
    Happy New Year will see the return of the Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and Farah Khan combination after Om Shanti Om which was Deepika Padukone’s debut Hindi film. The film directed by Farah Khan and to be released under Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment banner also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood, Jackie Shroff and Vivaan Shah.

  • Then heyy babby was srk’s film bcoz he had danced.

    Ddlj was kjo’s film

    Ra one was sanjay dutt film.

    Ishq in paris was salman’s film

  • title of this article: entertainment has a good second week.
    and then, they pour bad review and remarks on the movie.
    what is this?? which moron has edited this??
    only for akshay you ppl wont be satisfied even with 120 crores, but for other worm-like stars you predict big hit even when it touches 40 crores??? please justify.
    when the producer, ramesh taurani in interview said, he has recovered all costs, and they are going to celebrate success in big way…why the need of a debate??
    article’s meaning and others comments summary: producers are fool to sign akki, and the critics are only intelligent ones in planet.
    still Akshay sustains his legacy with maximum number of movies every year, and huge collections in majority movies. now who are the real fools???
