Phantom 4th Day Box Office Collection
Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif’s Phantom has had a cracker of a weekend at the box office. In its first three days, the Kabir Khan film has netted Rs 33.18 crore in India. The film had opened to Rs 8.46 crore. Phantom hit the screens on July 28, and ever since, has seen growing footfall in theatres. Based on the 26/11 Mumbai Attacks, Phantom deals with Daniyal Khan (Saif Ali Khan) playing a wronged ex-Indian Army officer who is roped in for a mission to kill all four masterminds of the attacks. Because of its controversial subject, Phantom was met with a ban in Pakistan. Jama’at-ud-Daw’ah chief Hafiz Saeed, who has a character playing him in Phantom, had moved court asking for the film to not be released in Pakistan. A few days after Saeed’s plea, the Lahore High Court ordered a ban on Phantom in the country. Apart from Saif Ali Khan, Phantom stars Katrina Kaif, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub and Sabyasachi Chakraborty in key roles. Today the film opened with a much drop in the occupancy of around 30 % and saw decent audience rush in the cinema halls and theatres.
Phantom Monday Business Report
Public had loved the movie as much they have seen till now and those who are going are very interested and have positive word of mouth for the film. Everyone knows that weekdays indicate lower box office earnings and income for any movie so Phantom also look to suffer the same thing as today the film have experienced a drop in the collections as well as the occupancy of the viewers and closed down at 8.10 Crores*. Still this figure is decent enough but not too superb so it has to continue positive remarks and interest of the public in order to hold up a good 1st week collection and then later on business. “Phantom” directed by Kabir Khan was released on Friday in just 2600 screens in India. The film opened to mixed reviews from critics, but the collection remained slightly on the lower side since the beginning.
