Phat Poster Nikhla Hero had a moderate opening weekend at box office. If PPNH opening would have been bigger and better than present, then it would have done the trick for the film. But because of moderate opening, now film has to largely depend on weekdays specially, starting with Monday that is today. From early report PPNH has taken an opening of 20% on Monday Morning shows which is just average. Although film will pick up in later half of the day as today is normal working day.
Besharam is releasing on 2nd October, that means PPNH has got a significant run of around 12 days on its hand. Plus, it has to fight it out with Grand Masti which is still running well. Second Weekend for PPNH becomes even more crucial now.
PPNH has collected around 21-22 crore nett in its opening weekend. It has fall short of trade expected mark of around 4-5 crore at least in first 3 days. Film was expected to collect or touch 40 crore nett in first week before release and it seems that film will again fall short of that mark by significant margin. Many in trade were expecting PPNH to collect or touch 60-70 crore nett in its lifetime and be the biggest grosser of Shahid Kapoor ever. But looking from early trend, it will be a distant dream now.
Although PPNH is just into its 4th day and anything is possible. We have seen many films starting slow but trended well in long run. Hope that happens with PPNH also.
