Aditya Chopra and Ranveer Singh’s Befikre has turned out to be a disappointment in overseas. The film has only collected 12.48 crore in the opening weekend.
Before the release, Befikre was touted as a big money spinner due to the Aditya Chopra. The director is said to have a huge fan following in overseas as all his films were huge hits there. Ranveer Singh was also coming after blockbuster Bajirao Mastani which collected over 100 crore.
But it turned out that Aditya Chopra’s success was only due to the presence of Shahrukh Khan. Befikre opening weekend is even lower than the opening day of Dear Zindagi. SRK only played a cameo in the film yet the collections got a huge boost.
Ranveer Singh has also failed as the opening weekend is lower than films like Dishoom which were not even overseas friendly. In comparison, Ranbir Kapoor’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil collected 16.70 crore in just one day.
All three Befikre, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Dear Zindagi had overseas friendly content. While Dear Zindagi had SRK cameo, ADHM was helmed by Karan Johar who is quite popular abroad.
