Neither Sunny Deol’s Singh Saab The Great nor the Kareena-Imran Khan starrer Gori Tere Pyaar Mein have managed to get the cash registers ringing. However, Sunny’s film is doing well at the single screens. So who has won this box office battle?
The jodi of Sunny Deol and Anil Sharma, who made box office history with Gadar – Ek Prem Katha hasn’t been able to attract movie goers this time around. Their out-and-out action flick Singh Saab The Great (SSTG) is having a tough time at the ticket windows. And the case is no different with Kareena Kapoor Khan and Imran Khan’s romcom Gori Tere Pyaar Mein (GTPM). According to Boxofficeindia, “Gori Tere Pyaar Main and Singh Saab The Great both opened below the mark. Gori Tere Pyaar Mein opened to a poor 25-30 percent all over. Singh Saab The Great managed good to decent collections in some parts like Punjab, UP and Rajasthan of around 40-50 percent but places like Pune, Bangalore and Kolkata were just 15-20 percent. At some single screen centres in the North it was housefull or near housefull but it makes little change to the overall picture.”
On the other hand, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela starring Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh is still holding rock steady at the box office. “Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela had a very good first week of around Rs 75 crore nett with phenomenal business in Mumbai. The start of the second week has seen steady collections despite the film not showing in UP from Friday due to a ban,” reported Boxofficeindia.
If Ram-Leela continues its good run at the box office, then SSTG and GTPM’s first week collection may not be flattering. Also, Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Bullett Raja starring Saif Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha will release this week, wethinks it will make the numbers game even tougher for Sunny paaji and Kareena’s film!
