FIRST DAY COLLECTION: Begum Jaan Registers A Disappointing Figure Of Rs 3.94 Crore At The Box-Office

DAY 1 collection was extremely low for Vidya Balan’s Begum Jaan. Besides average reviews of the film, trade also feels the film has been badly hit by Hollywood film-The Fate Of The Furious

Vidya Balan may have given one of the best performances of her career in Begum Jaan, but that wasn't enough to get the audiences at the ticket windows. The movie has opened up really bad at the box-office and the first day collections are just Rs 3.94 crore.

Trade Expert Taran Adarsh tweeted the figures a while back.

He even went ahead to explain the reason for this dismal performance at the box-office. Hollywood big budget film The Fate Of The Furious, which is the eighth part in the Fast & Furious franchise, has a huge fan following all over the world. In just a day and a half, the film earned over Rs 22 crore in India alone.

Also, Punjabi film-Manje Bistre is getting huge footfall in the Northern states of India, which is another reason for Begum Jaan's bad performance at the box-office.

Talking about the disappointing performance of the film, Ravi Sibal, General Manager, PVR Juhu told us last afternoon, "The footfall has been bad for the morning shows. Let's hope there is some good word-of-mouth publicity for the film, which helps it grow through the week. Simply put there is 'No Jaan In This Begum Jaan'."

Trade Analyst and Film distributor Akshaye Rathi also spoke to us, "I can call Begum Jaan a non-starrer. It's no Dabangg or Sultan that it will give you a huge box-office opening. It will grow over the week on the good word-of-mouth it has got. A 20-22% occupancy in the morning shows is good for such a release, and I hope it will grow as the week progresses."

Let's wait and see through the weekend how the film copes up at the ticket window.
