Vidya Balan-starrer ‘Begum Jaan‘ has done very low business on its second day at the box office. The movie did a business of Rs 3.25 crore nett on the second day and that’s not even 20% growth from the first day numbers of Rs 3.50 crore nett. The two-day business of the movie is Rs 6.75 crore nett and it’s not up to the mark. Looking at the numbers, the movie will do earn around Rs 10 crore nett over the weekend.

The movie managed to do an okay business in North, but that doesn’t help the overall business of the movie. The movie was a solo Hindi release and Vidya Balan’s star power could not help the movie’s box office fate.
As the movie is made on a budget of Rs 19 crore, including print and advertising, it’s a difficult route ahead for the makers to recover the budget with theatrical business.
The movie is a Hindi adaptation of the Bengali movie ‘Rajkahini’ and due to comparisons with the original, many felt that performances, especially that of Vidya Balan, did not live up to the mark, when compared to Rituparna Sengupta’s act in the original. Now, let’s see how it fares on Sunday as that will give a clearer picture of the box office fate.
