Of the two releases, it’s Gori Tere Pyaar Mein! that has thrown the shocker with a dismal performance. Released over 1250 screens in India, the film starring Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor failed to pick up after a poor start. Going by the trade figures that have trickled in, the film opened on Friday with a shockingly low collection of Rs. 2.75 crore nett. Saturday saw a marginal rise to Rs. 3 crore and Sunday recorded Rs. 3.25 crore. The first weekend aggregate of the film comes around Rs. 9 crore nett, which is abysmally low.
Sunny Deol’s Singh Saab The Great fared better but there’s nothing great about the film’s box office performance. Directed by Anil Sharma, the film recorded Rs. 4.75 crore on the opening day, 4.50 crore on Saturday and 5.25 crore on Sunday. The first weekend aggregate stands at 14.50 crore nett, which isn’t up to the mark.
On the other hand, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela entered the 100 crore club in its second weekend run at the box office. The film, starring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone had collected Rs. 81.90 crore till Thursday. During the weekend it added more than 18 crore (estimated) in its kitty to just scrape past the 100 crore mark.
