A Gentleman - yet another flashy film gets a boot at the box office after Jab Harry Met Sejal. Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez's film has crashed miserably at the box office with no chance of recovery at all. After earning only Rs 13.13 crore over the first weekend, the film is struggling to stay put. The latest figures as provided by Taran Adarsh is thus, "#AGentleman is a DUD... Fri 4.04 cr, Sat 4.36 cr, Sun 4.73 cr, Mon 2.03 cr, Tue 1.60 cr. Total: ₹ 16.76 cr. India biz." As you can see, the downward spiral has been consistent for the film. We wouldn't be surprised if it crashes out of the theatre by the end of this week.

Much has to do with the logistics. A Gentleman was supposed to post decent numbers at the box office. Our Trade Expert had predicted Rs 25 crore opening weekend but it only earned Rs 13.13 crore. Everything was in its favour. The trailer unveiled a really stylish film of Hollywood level. So the expectations were pretty big. Also, it was rumoured to be a sequel to Bang Bang! starring Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif, though the makers had condemned that vehemently. It did help the film get some attention. But it’s not enough to just look good. Despite getting more than 1000 screens, the film only made Rs 13.13 crore which wasn’t expected from it. Check out the latest figures right here…
Even before the release, there was buzz that the film has earned Rs 30 crore already by the sale of satellite, music and digital media rights. It’s made at a budget of Rs 50 crore. It might just break even by the end of its first week.
