Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Rangoon’ fails to race ahead of ‘Haider’ and ‘Kaminey’ at box office
Shahid Kapoor‘s recent release ‘Rangoon’ directed by Vishal Bhardwaj seems to be failing miserably at the box office. The film that also stars Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan in pivotal roles, has apparently failed to attract moviegoers to the theatres, hence, the bad box office collection. Not only in India, even the overseas collection of this film is too dull.
The combination of Vishal Bhardwaj and Shahid Kapoor has been a hit so far as both of them together have given us films like ‘Haider‘ and ‘Kaminey’. Both the films have proved to be a game-changer in Shahid’s career and have had a good run at the box office, but ‘Rangoon’ does not seem to follow this trend.
Talking about the overseas collection, ‘Rangoon’ has managed to mint approximately Rs 26.25 crore worldwide in its first weekend. Of course, the numbers are dull and do not cross the mark created by ‘Haider’ and Kaminey’.
The worldwide collection of ‘Kaminey’ over its first weekend was approximately Rs 28.50 crore while ‘Haider’ had accumulated approximately Rs 29 crore at the box office in its first weekend. It is disappointing to know that ‘Rangoon’ is having a dull run at the box office. ‘Haider’ and ‘Kaminey’ ran solely on Shahid’s star power while ‘Rangoon’ has Kangana and Saif’s star power attached. Let’s wait and watch, what does the upcoming week hold for ‘Rangoon’. (Also Read: ‘Rangoon’ movie review: A moving exploration with brilliant performances)
