Aurangzeb scores poor at box office


There were high hopes for the Bollywood movie ‘Aurangzeb’, starring Arjun Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Sara Bhaskar and Sasheh Aagha. The movie was eagerly-awaited and was expected to get a good start at the box office, but it received only a 15-25 percent start.


Regardless of that, the industry experts are still hoping that it might pick up during the weekend to make a mark. The movie is not doing well at the box office, especially at the multiplexes and needs a good push so that it makes some business. Another movie release includes ‘I Dont Luv U’, which stars Chetna Pande and Ruslaan Mumtaz.

Both of these movies got a less-than-disappointing beginning at the box office. On the other hand, Saif Ali Khan starrer movie ‘Go Goa Gone’ managed to hold on to steady collections through the mid-week and even during the weekend. The net collections included a creditable 20 crores in the first week, which is very good considering 9 to 10 crore budget.

The figures are likely to improve after the non-theatrical rights are accounted for. The movie could not perform well overseas but is expected to gross more than $ 1m from the circuit. ‘Go Goa Gone’ is the first movie based on zombies released in India.
