Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor’s Befikre is doing reasonably well at the box office.
The first weekend collection of the Aditya Chopra’s film is Rs 34.36 crores after collecting Rs 12.40 crores on Sunday.
Says a trade analyst: “#Befikre Fri 10.36 cr, Sat 11.60 cr, Sun 12.40 cr. Total: ₹ 34.36 cr [2100 screens]. India biz.”
The film hasn’t managed to show growth as previously thought, on the second and third day of the weekend.
Aditya Chopra is working with Ranveer Singh for the first time. Aditya’s last three films Mohabbatein, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge featured Shah Rukh Khan in main roles.
Meanwhile, Dear Zindagi starring Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt collected Rs 64.44 crores in its third week.
If we compare the first-weekend collections of both Befikre and Dear Zindagi, there’s not much difference between the two.
While Befikre earned Rs 34.36 cr after the first three days, weekend collection of Dear Zindagi was Rs 32.50 crore.
Befikre’s budget was around Rs 70 as it was shot in Europe and according to song and dance sequences there had been many foreign actors working as extras.
Dear Zindagi is made on a relatively low budget of around Rs 40 crore.
There are no major releases next week to threaten Befikre or Dear Zindagi. – CINEWS
