Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Zero’ had an unimpressive second day at the box office on Saturday, according to a trade report.
After collecting Rs 20.14 crore on the opening day, the SRK-Anushka Sharma-Katrina Kaif love triangle witnessed a drop of almost 10 per cent on day two, earning Rs 18.22 crore. The total now stands at Rs 38.36, but according to well-known trade expert Taran Adarsh, the collections should’ve witnessed a strong growth after an ‘underwhelming’ opening day. The movie is ‘struggling’ at the box office, he tweeted.
All eyes will be on Sunday, where new releases generally take the highest opening in its lifetime business. If there is another drop, the writing will be on the wall for the movie. In that case, the chances of the ambitious venture passing the crucial Monday test or raking up decent numbers during the weekdays will be minuscule.
Not just the reviews from critics, even audiences have been divided on their opinion of the movie and that could be the reason for the collections not being up to the mark.
‘Zero’ has been directed by Aanand L Rai and written by Himanshu Sharma, a partnership that has previously delivered successes with 'Tanu Weds Manu' franchise and 'Raanjhanaa'.The movie also stars Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Sheeba Chaddha, Brijendra Kala, among others, apart from cameos from Abhay Deol and R Madhavan and has been produced by SRK and Aanand L Rai's banners Red Chillies Entertainment and Colour Yellow Productions.
