Last week’s both releases have failed at the box office. Ayushman Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra starrer Meri Pyaari Bindu has collected 9.35 crores in the 1st week. It is a very poor number which was expected as rom-coms are not working anymore. The film was made on a controlled budget (22 cr) and there were decent recoveries from non-theatrical rights. But theatrical recovery will be negligible which makes it a flop.
Amitabh Bachchan and Ram Gopal Verma’s Sarkar 3 has a first week of around 9.25 crores. It is an even big failure as the 1st-week gross is the lowest for medium films in 2017. Sarkar 3 is a box office disaster as it will not recover the costs of promotions. The lifetime collection can be less than Meri Pyaari Bindu despite releasing in more screens.
