Bell Bottom finally manages to surpasses the 20 crore nett milestone at the Indian box office after 10 days of its release. The film has been struggling to sustain at the box office in the second week, owing to lesser screens, lesser allowed occupancy and also not-so-great buzz for audience to watch the film in theaters.

The film collected 1.35 Cr yesterday on Day 10, a 66% growth from 75 lacs on the previous day. The collections are expected to increase again today and possibly even tomorrow (owing to the Janamasthami holiday). That would mean that the 25 crore mark would be crossed before the end of the second week, though it will be interesting to see how soon that happens.

Here’s what the day wise breakdown looks like –

Thursday Day 1 – 2.75 cr nett

Friday Day 2 – 2.75 cr nett

Saturday Day 3 – 3 cr nett

Sunday Day 4 – 4.50 cr nett

Monday Day 5 – 2 cr nett

Tuesday Day 6 – 1.65 cr nett

Wednesday Day 7 – 1.50 cr nett

Thursday Day 8 – 0.55 cr nett

Friday Day 9 – 0.75 cr nett

Saturday Day 10 – 1.35 cr nett

These are undoubtedly not the kinds of figures that producers Vashu Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, and Jackky Bhagnani hoped for when they decided to release the film in theaters. Despite the fact that the odds were stacked against them, they took the risk, which they did bravely.

However, it was unfortunate for them that Bell Bottom’s collections were not optimal on opening day, and they did not improve over the weekend. Following that, weekdays saw a drop as well and second week’s collections are very dismal, putting an end to dreams of at least a reasonable lifetime figure.

If we put pandemic factors aside, like s Akshay Kumar said in one of the interviews, the 25 crore nett at Indian box office should equate with 75 crore nett in normal times. But that is also a poor figure for an Akshay Kumar starrer in normal times. Hopefully more big films will dare to release in theaters and revive the business.
