Bollywood actress Vidya Balan's much-hyped movie Bobby Jasoos has received dismal opening and made poor collection at the Indian Box Office in its first weekend. The female detective movie has landed in the second place, while one-week-old release Ek Villain topped the domestic business chart. Its three-day business is not even equal to the first day collection of The Dirty Picture (Rs 9.25 cr nett).
Having garnered lot of public attention before its release, Bobby Jasoos released in 1350 screens worldwide on July 4 and debut with a below average occupancy of 30%. The strong word of mouth was expected to take its business upwards on Saturday and Sunday. It did show improvements, but it was not upto the expected mark. The film failed to cross Rs 10 crore mark in the first weekend.
Bobby Jasoos has collected approximately Rs 5.31 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 1.78 cr on Fri, Rs 2.53 cr on Sat and Rs 3 cr on Sun. The movie, which has been made with whopping budget of Rs 25 crore, has recovered just 20% of its production cost in three days. If it needs to recover its budget, the film has to show a big jump its numbers on the weekdays.
