YRF is going through the worst phase of its history as its last 4-5 films tanked at the box office big time. The latest release Shamshera is the biggest of them all.
The film managed poor collections over the weekend of under 32 cr nett and then an inevitable big Monday crash happened as film dropped by 70% from Monday numbers. It again dropped on Tuesday by a further 20% and collected 2.30 cr nett following its 3 cr nett on Monday.
The film underperformed in the overseas market with the following numbers :
Opening Weekend Biz
Total: $ 1.250 mn [₹ 9.98 cr]
UAE + GCC: $ 450k
NorthAmerica: $ 397k
Europe: $ 115k
Rest Of World: $ 288k
The film will fall short of 18-20 cr lifetime overseas number.
Shamshera will finish with 25-26 cr worldwide share which is just a little more than its p & a expense. Media will paint the picture that the entire cost of production will be recovered with satellite, digital and music sales but at the moment it looks impossible as the film has budgets in the vicinity of 180-200 cr.
A big disaster, probably the biggest in recent times!
