There is no doubt that Kabir Khan?s Salman-Zhu Zhu venture, TUBELIGHT, was expected to set the box-office on fire, ending the first half of 2017 on a joyous note. However, the film tanked badly and a pall of gloom descended. But that was not the only injury that the industry suffered!
July was expected to bring loud cheers via Anurag Basu directed Katrina-Ranbir starrer, JAGGA JASOOS. It was widely believed that the families and especially the bachcha party would lap up the fun and frolic film and throng the cinemas. But alas, that was not to be, as after a decent weekend (33-34 crore), the film could not sustain during the weekdays, and the best case scenario appears to be a final tally of 65 crore from India. The overseas too appears to be struggling for a final tally of $2.50m.
Having said that, Bollywood is all set to fire a relatively unknown salvo in the shape of the Tiger Shroff and Nawazuddin venture, MUNNA MICHEAL, this Friday itself. The film carries a buzz, the audio is getting popular and the biggest chunk of the cinema going audience, the campus crowd and the youths are finding the promos appealing and the trade feels that the film will embark on a reasonably good start, thus soothing the box-office wounds, fingers crossed!
