This week’s premier release, Yash Raj Films’ Shaad Ali directed, KILL DIL, failed to enthuse the audience. While KILL DIL was not exactly expected to set the box-office on fire, but the 30 percent start (on an average) for a Govinda, Ranveer Singh, Parineeti Chopra and Ali Zafar starrer is a bit surprising. The film did not show much improvement during the latter shows, but the makers can still hope for turnaround during the next two days of the weekend.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, KILL DIL and THE SHAUKEENS

Meanwhile, last week’s Akshay Kumar (extended cameo), venture, THE SHAUKEENS, could not improve much over its so-so 18 crore weekend and ended the week netting in the 23-24 crore range, as per early estimation. Given the poor overseas run, THE SHAUKEENS, is a box-office failure.

Concluding with Farah Khan’s HAPPY NEW YEAR, the film continues to bring in the moolah, even with new releases and in the third week! Adding another 8-9 crore the Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah starrer, HAPPY NEW YEAR, has netted nearly 196 crore (to be validated) from India, and is a super hit. HAPPY NEW YEAR continues to rock the overseas grossing in excess of $15m.
