Box Office Report: ‘AndhaDhun’ and ‘LoveYatri’ have a slow start on day 1
The first weekend of October saw two Bollywood films making its way to the Indian box office, ‘LoveYatri’ and ‘AndhaDhun’. The former is the debut film of Salman Khan‘s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain. The movie is a new generation sweet love story, while ‘Andhadhun’ is a suspense thriller starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Tabu and Radhika Apte among others. However, both the movies had a very slow start on their first day at the ticket windows.
October 5th also saw the release of Hollywood flick ‘Venom’ which is the reason why ‘AndhaDhun’ and ‘LoveYatri’ were left behind with its day 1 collections. ‘AndhaDhun’ pocketed around Rs 2.25-2.50 crore while ‘LoveYatri’ collected around Rs 1.75- 2 crore which is, even more, poorer than ‘AndhaDhun’. The movie incurred a loss of almost 10 lakhs nett due to the strike in MP.
As ‘Loveyatri’ is set in the backdrop of Navratri, it boasts of a lot of garba with a touch of romantic music and songs. It’s number ‘Chogada Tara’ has already struck a chord with the listeners this festive season. Music has emerged to be a huge plus point for the movie.
Tom Hardy starrer ‘Venom’ was the winner on its first day of release. It collected a fair amount of Rs 3.75-4 crore nett. ‘Sui Dhaaga’ is still going strong at the box office and looking at the day one collection of ‘Andhadhun’and LoveYatri’, they are going to face a tough competition from the Varun-Anushka starrer.
