Phata Poster Nikhla Hero First Day Collections

Phata Poster Nikhla HeroShahid Kapoor’s Phata Poster Nikhla Hero has collected around 6.1 crore net on its first day at the box office. The film has fared poorly in two of the biggest circuits in India – Mumbai and Delhi – which has resulted in poor opening day business.

Released on approximately 1900 screens (India only), Phata Poster Nikhla Hero has failed to excite the urban youth due to which business was poor throughout the day in big cities. The film’s content (comedy, melodrama, emotions) has more appeal towards the family audience, who might come out to watch the film over the weekend.

The weekend business should be around the 20 crore mark, which is poor considering the fact that the film was carrying decent pre-release buzz.

In the long run, Phata Poster Nikhla Hero will continue to fare well in smaller centres and single screens, but multiplexes are likely to witness drops from Monday onwards. The film should finish with lifetime business of around 40-45 crore net.



  • i think this figure is manipulated. a film where bhai is doing a cameo shld hav collected at least 50 on opening day given the fact that bhai’s hug to the leading actor of a film resulted in 200 crore. this film will actually cross 500 cr, but sadly it would b manipulated…….bhai rox!!!

  • i didn’t like movie at all. disappointed. shahid is not good in comedy. loved the ajab prem ki ghazab kahani but ppnh story is not good and shahid overacted too much.

  • @indicine
    I thnk that ur collections are wrong..
    Taran Adarsh stated that the movie had done 7.25+cr on day 1..
    N many others trade experts hav also given value between 7 to 7.5 cr..
    So I don’t knw y ur figures are so low..
    The weekend will be arnd 26-28 cr!
    I thnk u Shud recheck ur collections..
    Becoz for CE ur collections were same as taran and other critics so I believed it, but nw y is ur collection on first day onli 6.1 wen others state it’s more than 7cr..

  • wom is excellent like ce so we expect huge groth on sat n sun and also maintain weekdays. 7cr is decent for busy working day in just 1800 screen.

  • Shahid is such a talented actor.. If u look at it then its soo unfair that ranbirs movie get an opening of arnd 19cr n shahid’s movie get onli 6 cr, I mean ranbir is definitely not more talented than shahid!
    Both are equally talented! Hope PPNH picks up today n collects atleast 8cr as Saturday occupancy is higher than Friday..
    I thnk the movie will end with 50cr lifetime.. Which is good considering the competition and also PPNH was supposed to be released in 2500 screens but onli ended up with 1880 screens..
    But one cannot deny that shahid has given one of the best performances of 2013..
    This movie will be an average or above average affair, n I thnk rambo rajkumar will do to shahid what wanted had done to Salman wen he was goin through the same rough patch in his career!

  • Just don’t know why Shahid movies are not starting of well!!!!!!
    Even movies of newcomers like Shuddh Desi Romance and Student of the Year got better opening than PPNH.
    The movie has everything comedy,action,romance,good music still it is sad to know that the film has not opened well.

  • Shahid should get a hit because he has such talent so a talented director can make his life in a right way so he has to work with Imtiaz ali,Anurag kashyap,Murugadoss,mohit suri,anurag basu etc thats the reason his career was like even i dont trust prabhu deva but i wish his success for Rambo Rajkumar but he should do a movie with Imtiaz ali for sure

  • hahahahahahuuuuheeeeese king of overacting is back wid another flop n peoples r comparing him wid RK…..hasi aati h aise logo par

  • @indicine yew’r colloction for PPNH is wrong, etts 7 + crore on day 1…. check ett out, this is also a v mnyc movie as well

  • My prediction bang on. I already predicted movie will not touch 10 cr mark. but surprisingly movie have not even touch 7 cr. this again proved that grand masti’s collection were blockbuster and had tremendous hype among paying public who don’t sit on Internet and making rubbish comments. Again I m telling there was no pre release buzz around movie. It is only some fans who were hyping on Internet. And writing comments on forum section in favour of some star dosent mean movie has good hype among paying public. I m not against shahid or any actor. But whatever truth that need to b accept. Shahid’s weaker point is his childish face. And worst part is his dance. Except nagada in jab we met nobody remember his dance. Despite acting in no of big movies and actress like Kareena, priyanka vidya rani and directors like Suraj badjatyas v bhardwaj vikram bhat John mathew mantan aziz mirza imtiyaz Ali raj santoshi etc he could not establish himself as a big star and couldn’t build fan base.

  • it’s a shame. shahid deserves more. 4 years ago ajab prem ki ghazab kahaani opened better than this even with half of the release size of PPNH. shahid is really going through a bad phase.

  • @Rohit you don’t need to tell me for cheap people like you ritesh and his grand masti underrated and rotesh is not even half talented what Shahid is and it’s a fact.the audience is over utilising Shahid for big time,i hope one day he will get his due.

  • The collections of CHENNAI EXPRESS from multiplexes and single screens compared with YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI, the other big grosser of 2013, is as follows.

    Chennai Express -128 crore
    Yeh Hai Jawaani Hai Deewani 120 crore

    Single Screens
    Chennai Express -80 crore
    Yeh Hai Jawaani Hai Deewani 58 crore

    Chennai Express -208 crore
    Yeh Hai Jawaani Hai Deewani 178 crore

    The gap is just 8 crore at multiplexes but a huge 22 crore at single screens.

    30 crore difference is only because of Eid holidays and sadak chap single screen content nothing….for all srk fans thinking that srk has done something unimaginable this perfect answer

  • look at the comment of srk fan

    I dont care about the collections.Im pretty sure that SRK is going to win the Filmfare best actor award for his performance in Don 2.

    now box office everything for them

    look at don-2 collections of 3rd week are affected by the release of players haha which is diaster itself
    open weeks are there for srk movies ra.1,don-2 also but failed at box office


    The release of Players has severely affected the collections of Don 2 in Week 3 as collections dropped by more than 80%.

    While we expected the collections to be around 10 crores due to the strong word-of-mouth, the film only managed about Rs 5.2 crores in its 3rd week.

    Weekly breakdown (Hindi version only)

    Week 1 70.9 crores
    Week 2 27.2 crores (62% drop)
    Week 3 5.2 crores (81% drop)

    shame srk fans claiming tht is he is back king?blah blah
