Befirke Box Office Collection Day 6
Befikre starring Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor has earned a little over Rs 43 crore at the domestic box office and is likely to earn Rs 40 crore in the first week. After collecting Rs 5.20 crore on Monday, the film Rs 3.49 crore on Tuesday. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Befikre Fri 10.36 cr, Sat 11.60 cr, Sun 12.47 cr, Mon 5.20 cr, Tue 3.59 cr. Total: ₹ 43.22 cr. India biz.” Befikre passed the crucial weekday test and did an average business. The film has got an overwhelming response in the overseas market. Directed by Aditya Chopra, Befikre has collected Rs 12.48 crores in the opening weekend in the overseas market.
The film is likely to earn Rs 50 crore in the first week itself, according to trade estimates. Made at a budget of about Rs 70 crore, Befikre was released on 2100 screens. However, its collections are way behind Ranveer’s last film, Bajirao Mastani, which earned Rs 10.25 crore on its first Monday at the box office. However, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali epic was made at a humungous budget too. With Befikre enjoying an extended window at the box office, the film is likely to increase its collections in the second week of its release. Befikre revolves around Dharam and Shyra who believe in love with no strings attached.
Befikre seems to be a similar phenomenon on the lines of films including Tamasha, Baar Baar Dekho, Shuddh Desi Romance and many others who have tried to capture the carefree and free spirited aspect of love. Aditya has said that Befikre is a complete departure from his first film as a director, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh earlier shared, “#Befikre Fri 10.36 cr, Sat 11.60 cr, Sun 12.47 cr, Mon 5.20 cr. Total: ₹ 39.63 cr. India biz.” Taran also shared the overseas collection and wrote, “#Befikre – OVERSEAS – Opening Weekend: $ 1.85 million [₹ 12.48 cr]… Best in UAE-GCC [$ 788k], USA-Canada [$ 498k].”
On Wednesday also, it started the day with lesser occupancy and collected the amount of 3.02 crores. At the end of its 5th day, total domestic collection of Befikre has become 46.24 crores. Due to weak story line, Befikre has not received much positive reviews from critics but most of the audience reacted in its favor. This was the reason, it registered quite good business in the opening weekend. As always Ranveer Singh has stolen the show with his entertaining performance but still the movie seems failed to maintain the pace.
