Box Office Report: ‘Fanney Khan’, ‘Mulk’ and ‘Karwaan’ open to a slow start
Three much-awaited films ‘Mulk‘, ‘Karwaan’ and ‘Fanney Khan’ hit the theaters on Friday, 3rd August. It was a triple treat for fans as each film was of a different genre. The much-hyped movies have been creating a positive buzz since their announcement but contrary to expectations has opened to poor response at the box office on day 1.
‘Fanney Khan’ starring Aishwarya Rai, Rajkummar Rao, and Anil Kapoor was expected to mint good numbers at the box office but sadly the response to the musical drama was sluggish. But it was better than the response to Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu starrer ‘Mulk’, or Dulquer Salmaan and Irrfan Khan starrer ‘Karwaan’.
‘Fanney Khan’ has managed to collect Rs. 1.80-1.90 crore nett, though it had the widest release and also taking into consideration its budget the collection is not as good as expected.
On the other hand, Rishi Kapoor’s ‘Mulk’ collected Rs 1.50-1.60 crore nett. ‘Karwaan‘ has managed to collect Rs. 1.40-1.50 crore nett that is far less than the other two.
The approx first-day collections of the three films are as follows:
Fanney Khan – 1,85,00,000
Karwaan – 1,45,00,000
Mulk – 1,55,00,000
Being a weekend, it is quite possible that footsteps might increase leading to a growth in the collections.
So let us wait and watch which film will lead the pack over the weekend.
