A Gentleman starring Siddharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez has opened below expectations and has only earned 4.04 crore in India. It is a busy week at the movies with Vivegam, Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, Qaidi Band, Arjun Reddy and many other films. All the films belong to different diasporas of the audience, hence one gets a lot of options to pick from. Of all the Hindi films, A Gentleman has had the best opening but number is less considering the print count.
The collections of the film is bound to go up during the weekend because of above average word of mouth. Nawazuddin Siddique starrer Babumoshai hai grossed 2 crores on it’s first day against the cost of 3 crores, which says that film is going to be a hit on the box office. Footfalls for Babumoshai will be decreasing as the word of mouth has been severely negative and despite that film has opened to the maximum occupancy ever for a film lead by Nawaz.
Qaidi Band has got the worst opening for a YRF film, probably because they did not take the pain of promoting it at all. Aadar Jin comes from prestigious Kapoor familly and gets a launch as lead under a celebrated director (Habib Faisal) with an illustrious production house (YRF) with zero promotions despite the fact that film has decent enough content.
