BO Report: Chennai Express’ collections drop on Monday

By Bollywood Hungama News Network

We have spoken earlier about how the film industry considers Monday as the most dreadful day as far as business is concerned. Most Bollywood movies see a major drop in their BO collections on 'Khooni Mondays' and the case with Chennai Express was no different.

Mondays, we say, is the true litmus test for any film. In fact, the research done by our team shows that the average drop in business for most films on Mondays in 2013 has been in the range of 50-55%. However, in the case of films like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Aashiqui 2, it saw exceptionally low drop in business at 42% and 43% respectively. So what happened in case of SRK's Chennai Express?

Well, shockingly, despite all the hype and hoopla, SRK's Chennai Express saw the highest drop in BO collections on Monday. Even though the film collected Rs. 12.62 cr on Monday, it shows a drop of 61.17% as compared to its Sunday collections.

The Box Office figures are compiled from various sources and our own research. The figures can be approximate and Bollywood Hungama does not make any claims about the authenticity of the data. However, they are adequately indicative of the box-office performance of the film(s).
