‘Desi Boyz’ movie records for opening weekend with Rs. 53 crores


Bollywood movie ‘Desi Boyz’ directed by the first time director Rohit Dhawan, for the opening weekend grossed Rs. 53 crores worldwide. The film was co-produced by Eros International Media in association with the Next Gen Films and was released on November 25 in more than 2,000 screens in the world.

The movie is a light entertainer and was meant for the young generation. On the first day of the release the collections were affected due to some political unrest in the regions like Maharashtra. But the collections picked up on the weekend.

The movie brought back the hit pair of John Abraham and Akshay Kumar after the movie ‘Garam Masala’. The movie also has Deepika Padukone, Chitrangada Singh, Anupam Kher and Omi Vaidya.

Sanjay Dutt plays an interesting cameo in the movie as the owner of the male escort agency. The story of the movie is about two room mates who have lost their jobs due to a recession in UK. They then get in to the recession proof job of male escorts as they have to earn money due to their individual responsibilities. Music composer Pritam has given a huge boost to the movie and the title track has already become a chart buster.
