Slow start seen for ticket office this Dec; Bollywood might earn Rs 4 cr in first weekend

December has actually historically been the most rewarding month for the Hindi movie industry. This December might pan out a tad in a different way due to a sluggish start with only mid-sized movies, and hold-up in a major release – Padmavati, earlier slated for a December 1 release.After dealing with delays

, the 2 movies– Kapil Sharma’s Firangi and Arbaaz Khan, Sunny Leone-starrer Tera Intezaar– are finally playing in theatres. Both the films together may bring profits worth Rs 4 crore this Friday.Firangi is Sharma’s second offering after Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon that made Rs 7.68 crore on its very first day. The film went on to rake in Rs 58.40 crore in the domestic market and gross Rs 71.60 crore worldwide.However, movie trade analysts are not very enthusiastic on Sharma’s brand-new venture and anticipate collections

of around Rs 3 to 4 crore on day one.Made with a budget of Rs 25 crore and slated for release on over 1,300 screens, Firangi’s opening day collection is lower than Sharma

‘s first outing. According to film trade experts, Firangi is most likely to earn Rs 10 crore over the weekend. This will still be 2.5 times lower in comparison to Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon which minted Rs 24.03 crore over the first weekend.Experts believe the collections for Firangi may take a hit due to Sharma’s popular television program’Funny Nights with Kapil’, which had actually become a home name, going off-air. Working on 1,150 screens, the other Bollywood release Tera Intezaar worth Rs 12 crore might bring around Rs 1 crore to the box workplace on day one.Made with a modest spending plan the film might collect as much as Sharma’s film and over the weekend its

income could go up to Rs 12-14 crore in the first week perhaps on positive word of mouth evaluations. If the film receives negative evaluations then the business might come down to Rs 4-5 crore in week one.For film lovers in India, there is a Hollywood release this Friday– Wonder starring-Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson. The movie is promoted to be this year’s The Blind Side and has currently swiped USD 73 million in the US as of November 29 on a USD 20 million production spending plan.
