Lackluster start for BOBBY JASOOS & LHDD, 75 crore for EK VILLAIN!
The two new releases of the week, Vidya Balan's BOBBY JASOOS and EROS International and Illuminati Films' LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL, saw ordinary to poor start.
While BOBBY JASOOS led with a 15-20 percent start, the opening of LHDD was much lower at around 10 percent. There was a slight pick-up for BOBBY JASOOS during the latter shows, but the key will be Saturday and Sunday. In fact both BOBBY JASOOS and LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL have to show a substantial jump over the weekend to foster any fond hopes of a recovery.
Meanwhile, just as expected and predicted, it was the Mohit Suri directed, EK VILLAIN, which, after a great 75 crore opening week, turned out to be the first choice of the audience on the second Friday too, scoring quite well over both the new releases. Given the moderate budget, the Riteish, Shraddha and Sidharth starrer, EK VILLAIN, is on way to a super hit status, if not a blockbuster, more so due to the surprisingly good overseas performance.
