Box office: Akshay Kumar’s 'Joker' off to a dull start
In addition to the unanimous bashing Shirish Kunder’s film Joker has got from the critics, the film failed to take a good start at box office on its opening day.

The film, starring Akshay Kumar (also co-producer), Sonakshi Sinha, Minissha Lamba and Shreyas Talpade, released on 2200 screens but opened to a tepid 10 to 20 percent response in the morning shows at multiplexes though the occupancy did show an upward trend in the evening. The only sliver of hope was a better occupancy at single screen theatres.

As per early estimates, the film’s first day collections stand at around Rs. 4.75 crore to 5 crore. It is one of the lowest collections for any Akshay Kumar film in recent years. Joker will need to show a miraculous surge in the collection on Saturday and Sunday to be able to survive at box office. Otherwise, the film’s doomed to be a flop.

Meanwhile, Shirish Kunder’s better half Farah Khan too has little to rejoice as her film Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi only managed to make Rs. 9 crore nett in its first week.

On the other hand, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif’s Ek Tha Tiger rounded off its two week collections with a figure of Rs. 173 crore from domestic market.

The next Friday would see the release of Raaz 3, starring Emraan Hashmi, Bipasha Basu and Esha Gupta.
