The main release of this week, Saif Ali Khan’s CHEF, failed to whet the appetite of the audience, opening barely to a 10-15 percent start. While CHEF will definitely improve as the weekend progress, but the poor opening may just mean a little too late. The first day may well be around the 2 crore mark, give or take 50 lakhs.
CHEF and JUDWAA 2
The remaining releases of the week were also quite ordinary, but can still hope to turn the tide, during the remaining days of the weekend.
Meanwhile, Varun Dhawan’s JUDWAA 2 continued its winning run and ended the opening week netting in excess of 95 crore from India. The film, which is already a hit, is sure to end up as a super hit, given that it is once again the preferred choice of the audience even during the second week and by a long shot.
JUDWAA 2 is also superb in the overseas, and just as an example, the film has grossed $875,000, during the opening week from the US.
