Bollywood Box Office Update
BO update: Mixed start for 'Bullett Raja'
The Saif Ali Khan - Sonakshi Sinha starrer BULLETT RAJA, which is set in North India, was expected to open well in North circuits, especially in centres of U.P. While the opening shows of the film were quite good in certain parts of U.P., the general opening ranged from average to below average in several circuits. The occupancy was lower in Mumbai, but, of late, the opening shows of several films, including last week releases, were below the mark, but picked up during the course of the day, depending on the merits of the film.
BULLETT RAJA was never expected to start with a bang thanks to the lack of popular soundtrack. However, the film has the potential to strike a chord and like most Tigmanshu Dhulia movies, it is expected to gather momentum by late noon/evening shows.
Meanwhile, last week's releases, GORI TERE PYAAR MEIN! and SINGH SAAB THE GREAT, have been sidelined at major plexes, but GOLIYON KI RAASLEELA RAM-LEELA continues to perform well and is expected to be the second choice of moviegoers this weekend, after BULLETT RAJA.
