Bollywood Box Office Update
BO update: New releases fail to impress; Badlapur holds strong
By Bollywood Hungama News Network, February 27, 2015 - 13:02 IST
This week's releases went in for a last minute shuffle with Ganesh Acharya's HEY BRO being postponed to release a week later. However the other two releases DUM LAGA KE HAISHA and AB TAK CHHAPPAN 2 have failed to entice the audience.
Reports suggest that both films have opened below average with morning shows featuring 15-20% occupancy rate across the country. While not much was expected from either release, this less than desirable start has given an added impetus to the collections of BADLAPUR that released last week.
Overall, though DUM LAGA KE HAISHA that has received a few good reviews is expected to fare better than AB TAK CHHAPPAN 2, both will have to rely heavily on good word of mouth to post decent collections. On the other hand, the weekend will in all likelihood be dominated by Varun Dhawan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui's BADLAPUR.
