Mumbai Saga has witnessed negligible growth over its second weekend, and the spikes are so minimal that you can almost sense that the movie will all but wrap up its lifetime business by the end of the week. Anyway, with surge in cornavirus cases, reinforced lockdown in many territories in Maharashtra, Delhi NCR and East Punjab, and rise in night curfews, there's little that any film can do in the Hindi belt at this point, particularly one that has been met with a lukewarm response, keeping aside all these extraneous factors. Besides a boom on its first Sunday, the John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi starrer continued to collect in the low range since the day it opened in theatres, and on day ten, its second Sunday, it registered a paltry Rs.90 lakh nett, taking hitherto the box office collection of Mumbai Saga to Rs. 15.93 crore nett.
As per our well-placed trade source, the Sanjay Gupta directorial has underperformed at the box office even if you were to factor in the impediments arising from the second COVID-19 wave. According to out source, the collections should've been at least 25% higher to what the film has collected till this point for it to have been considered a reasonable grosser in cinema halls like Roohi, which had preceded it. Check out the day-wise box office collection of Mumbai Saga below:
Mumbai Saga day-wise breakup:
Day 1 (Friday): Rs. 2.82 crore nett
Day 2 (Saturday): Rs. 2.40 crore nett
Day 3 (Sunday): Rs. 3.52 crore nett
Day 4 (Monday): Rs. 1.49 crore nett
Day 5 (Tuesday): Rs. 1.47 crore nett
Day 6 (Wednesday): Rs. 90 lakh nett
Day 7 (Thursday): Rs. 83 lakh nett
Day 8 (2nd Friday): Rs. 75 lakh nett
Day 9 (2nd Saturday): Rs. 85 lakh nett
Day 9 (2nd Saturday): Rs. 90 lakh nett
Total (10 days): Rs. 15.93 crore nett
It'd be extremely surprising if Mumbai Saga shows any legs at the box office beyond its second week even if exhibitors (theatre owners) continue screening it.
