Babumoshai Bandookbaaz of Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Bidita Bag had hit the theaters this Friday with Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez’s A Gentleman. A Gentleman received mixed reviews from critics, this is why despite good promotions it witnessed low footfalls in theaters throughout the opening weekend.
On Friday, it recorded 15-20% of occupancy and did the business of only 4.04 crore. With limited growth on Saturday, it raked the business of 4.36 crores. On the last day of weekend i.e. Sunday, Raj & D.K’s directorial showed little more jump and collected 4.75 crores to make it’s opening weekend total 13.13 crores on domestic box office.
On the other hand, Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Babumoshai Bandookbaaz is doing well above expectations considering its low budget and its limited star power. The film, that is directed by Kushan Nandy and also stars debutante Bidita Bag and Jatin Goswami, is proving to be a David among several goliaths in the form of A Gentleman, The Hitman’s Bodyguard and The Dark Tower and Vivegam.
The film is expected to cover its production cost by this weekend. Nawazuddin Siddiqui has played the role of Babu, a sharp shooter. On its opening day, it did the business of 2.05 crores with 10-15% of occupancy across India. On Saturday, it showed minimal rise and minted the amount of 2.41 crores.
On the next day i.e. Sunday, it added the amount of 3.07 crores to it’s account and raised opening weekend domestic total to 7.53 crores. The is already a hit at the box office as this film of director Kushan Nandy was made on a low cost of 5 crores.
