Kill Dil couldn’t quite recover after a below average weekend at the box office. The only hope for the Shaad Ali directed flick to stay afloat was to have a minimal drop over the weekdays. However, with Monday registering a 50% drop from Friday, it was pretty much a given that the film wasn’t going to benefit from any sort of word of mouth.
The film saw further drops throughout the week, and since the weekend was on the lower side too, the eventual collections accumulated to just around 29 crore. Now these were the bare minimum collections expected on the weekend itself – but that’s what the film made in the entire week!
Since Happy Ending is releasing this week, one doesn’t see this Yash Raj film holding well in its second week. As a result, the film’s collections would be 35 crore at maximum, which is pretty low for a Ranveer Singh starrer commercial entertainer.
There are massive expectations from the young star and he should be bouncing back pretty soon with Zoya Akhtar‘s Dil Dhadakne Do.
On the other hand, Parineeti Chopra, who had a disappointing run with Daawat-e-Ishq, will be on a short break before picking her next.
As for Ali Zafar, one now waits to see when his next film Tere Bin Laden 2 hits the screens – that should turn around things for him.
Shaad Ali is yet to announce his next film.
As for Yash Raj Films, they would now move on to Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, which is carrying some good vibes and should start the ball rolling for them in 2015.
