First week collections: ‘Helicopter Eela’, ‘Tumbbad’, ‘FryDay’ and ‘Jalebi’ continue their dissapointing run
Last Friday (October 13) was a busy day at the box office as ‘Helicopter Eela’, ‘Tumbbad’, ‘FryDay’ and ‘Jalebi’ released. All the films were short of star power (except Kajol and Govinda) and it came as no surprise that the box office collections were lacklustre and ordinary. All the four films have failed to earn big bucks and with ‘Namaste England’ and ‘Badhaai Ho’ already released, chances of these films getting more traction seems difficult.
As per the Bollywood Hungama report, ‘Tumbbad’ has collected Rs 5.75 crore in the first week, ‘Helicopter Eela‘ has fetched Rs 5 crore and Govinda and Varun Sharma starrer FryDay has collected an abysmal Rs 1.75 crore. Last but not the least, romantic drama Jalebi has also disappointed and collected only Rs 2.75 crore.
The box-office numbers of these four films shows that audiences are getting very picky and choosy and are only interested in quality content.
