Last week we witnessed the release of Aditya Chopra’s most controversial directional venture, ‘Befikre’. This romantic drama which received mixed reviews opened up to a two digit earning on the very first day and has already surpassed the lifetime total of Ki & Ka by R. Balki which was Rs. 52.31 crores. Now the movie is progressing towards Mohenjo Daro, an Ashutosh Gowariker project which earned a total of Rs. 58 crore on the domestic box office. The movie still has a long way to go to cover the total budget which was 70 crores.
‘Befikre’ in spite of being backed by a big banner i.e. Yash Raj Films failed to make its mark on the box office. A lot was spent on the promotions as well which thus, had high expectations in return. The critics also couldn’t find anything worthy in the entire flick.
The movie did a business of Rs. 48.75 crores in the first week but couldn’t maintain a constant pace throughout the week. The movie is now in its second week and has raked in a minimal total of Rs. 6.79 crores in the second weekend.
