Mastizaade and Saala Khadoos Box Office Opening

Mastizaade has taken a poor start at the box office on Friday. At a few mass centres, the opening was shocking because the Sunny Leone factor was expected to bring the audience to theatres.

The timing of release, trade sources say, could be the reason why the film has been below-the-mark on Friday. Last week, a similar film, also starring Tusshar Kapoor in the lead, released in theatres and performed poorly at the box office.

Releasing a film like Mastizaade just a week after, didn’t make business sense, but the makers were probably banking on Sunny Leone’s presence to make a difference.

Saala Khadoos has also opened to a very poor response. The opening was in the 5-10% range in the morning, but the film has picked up in the noon.

At multiplexes, Airlift was better than both Saala Khadoos and Mastizaade on its 8th day at the box office.

Opening Day occupancy for other films in 2016

  • Saala Khadoos – 5 to 10%
  • Mastizaade – 20%
  • Airlift – 35%
  • Kya Kool Hai Hum 3 – 30%
  • Wazir – 17%




  • my prediction of 2nd weekend for Airlift

    8th day 6 crore
    9th day 8 crore
    10th day 9 crore

    23 crore 2nd weekend
    35 crore + 2nd week

    total 14 days 118 crore

    lifetime will be 134 crore + it will beat rowdy’s record

  • I agree. Similar genere with poor content and that too back to back release it was bound to happen. Again good content will emerge victorious. Bajirao, Airlift, Saala KhadKhadoos..…

  • Some Sunny Leone fans were bashing our Bhai – ha ha !

    Listen you Sunny Leone fans , Bhai >> Sunny Leone (both in terms of Hits, Disasters, and Crapgiri)

  • 20% is not poor start

    Mastizaade will do 5 plus as opening is decent around 30% actually not 20% .
    Hope airlift also does 5 plus today nd it will help crossing Agneepath lifetime.

  • AIRLIFT will clearly lose steam.

    I20 Cr. Lifetime Max.

    I cannot see Akki matching or beating ROWDY RATHODE.

    AIRLIFT needed a big 2nd weekend. It wont happen.

    Fri. 4.5 cr
    Sat. 6 Cr.
    Sun. 7 cr.

    2nd weekend. 17-18 cr max.
