The recently released movies, ‘Sarkar 3‘ and ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’, did a poor business at the box office in their first weekend. YRF’s ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra in the lead roles was flat on Sunday as the movie raked in Rs 2.50 crore nett which took the overall three-day business to Rs 6.50 crore nett. The movie had shown signs of growth on Saturday especially in metro cities like Mumbai and Delhi, but it did not show any signs of growth on Sunday when it should have performed the best.

The other movie which clashed with ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ was Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Sarkar 3’ starring Amitabh Bachchan, Jackie Shroff, Amit Sadh, Yami Gautam, and more, but the star power of Big B could not save the fate of the movie. The movie minted Rs 2.50 crore on Sunday taking the three-day business to Rs 6.85 crore nett. Considering the fact that ‘Sarkar 3’ had double the screens of ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ these numbers are very disappointing.
Seems like these two movies could not sustain in front of the storm of SS Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion’. Let’s see if there is any improvement in numbers, in coming days, or whether box office will suffer from ongoing famine (barring ‘Baahubali’) till the release of Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight’, on Eid.
