Box Office: Baar Baar Dekho Flop
Baar Baar Dekho starring Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra has so far performed well below expectations. All the star power and hectic promotional tours couldn’t save the film from witnessing a drop in occupancy throughout the week. Baar Baar Dekho did fairly decent in opening weekend with film collecting Rs 6.81 crores on Friday, Rs 7.65 crores on Saturday, Rs 6.70 crores on Sunday. The film saw sudden fall in business during weekdays with the film earning Rs 2.37 crores on Monday and Rs 2.75 crores on Tuesday and mere 1.70 crores on Wednesday. Directed by Nitya Mehra and produced by Karan Johar and Farhan Akhtar, Baar Baar Dekho explores a love story through time travel.
Baar Baar Dekho has so far collected a little over Rs 29 crore with an estimated Rs 1.40 crore on Thursday. Now the movie has entered in the second week and due to new awaited releases like Pink & Raaz Reboot, it received very low occupancy on its 8th day and minted the amount of 1.05 cr*. After 8 days, total collection of BBD is recorded as 30.45 crore* on domestic box office. It has lost almost all its hold over audience and now witnessing lower footfall in theaters.

Sidharth Malhotra, who was on a winning spree this year with his previous hit Kapoor & Sons, faced disappointment too. He accepted Baar Baar Dekho’s failure and said that he will now be more conscious in the future about the modalities of how the film is shaping up. After picking a good pace at the box office initially, the movie suffered due to bad word of mouth. Sidharth also said that he has come out experienced and slightly wiser. The actor says he never questions his choices but only questions the methods and processes in the movie-making business.
Sidharth Malhotra got a great platform to debut in Bollywood through Karan Johar’sStudent Of The Year, but post that, the actor’s career graph hasn’t been on a rise. Till now, Sidharth has done 6 films, out of which only one, Ek Villain has also managed to achieve the 100 crore feat. His recent release, Baar Baar Dekho, has already bombed at the box office. The film took a week one collection of merely 29.40 crores. Amongst his other releases,Brothers and Kapoor & Sons are two other films that had made a decent collection. While the former took advantage of releasing over a long weekend, it scored good
