Begum Jaan box office collection day 3: Vidya Balan plays a brothel madam in the film. In a recent post on Facebook, Srijit wrote, “For the statistically inclined, delighted to announce that despite mixed reviews, FF8, big regional new year releases and being an A rated film, #BegumJaan opened to 3.94 cr as opposed to the industry expectation of 3-3.25 cr and an ORMAX prediction of 3.4 cr. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the figures, “#BegumJaan declines on Day 2… Fri 3.94 cr, Sat 3.50 cr. The dip in the collection could be due to the Good Friday holiday on the first day. Total: ₹ 7.44 cr. India biz. — taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) April 16, 2017
The film is getting some tough competition from Hollywood action thriller Fast and Furious 8 starring Vin Diesel. Instead, the film witnessed a drop in collections on Saturday. The film didn’t show growth on the second day as was expected. There have also been some big regional releases that could be a reason behind Begum Jaan’s dismal show at the box office. Director Srijit Mukherji, however, doesn’t seem to be bogged down by mixed reviews that film got from critics. Begum Jaan collected Rs 3.50 crore on the second day in comparison to Rs 3.94 crore on opening day. India biz.” The film could see a spike in collections on Sunday and collect a decent weekend collection. Makers also found a huge tax relief of Rs 2 crore after the film has been declared tax-free in Jharkhand. Films like Pa Pandi (Tamil), Sakhavu (Malayalam) and Manje Bistre (Punjabi) have got positive reviews. Earlier Taran tweeted about the same, “#BegumJaan had a slow start… Evening shows better… #Furious8 wave + huge start of Punjabi film #ManjeBistre in North made a dent.”
