Baazaar box office collection: Saif Ali Khan, Rohan Mehra-starrer Baazaar is seeing good footfall at the box office despite Badhaai Ho still dominating the box office. The film has collected Rs 4.10 crore on Saturday after opening its score with Rs 3.07 crore on day 1. The movie has so far collected Rs 7.17 crore in India business alone.
Baazaar film, directed by Gauravv Chawla, has appeal for the urban multiplex audiences. The film features Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte, Chitrangada Singh and debutant Rohan Mehra, is based on the story of Mumbai's city life. Saif essays the role of a stock broker.
"#Baazaar picks up pace on Day 2... Witnesses 33.55% growth, which is a healthy trend... Needs to regain lost ground by scoring higher numbers on Day 3 and also on weekdays... Mumbai circuit is performing better... Fri 3.07 cr, Sat 4.10 cr. Total: Rs 7.17 cr India biz," Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
“Baazaar had an extremely poor start in the morning shows, but picked up pace during the course of the day... Has fared much better than the recent Saif Ali Khan starrers... Mumbai circuit is driving the biz... Fri 3.07 cr. India biz,” Adarsh tweeted. Saif's other recent films like Happy Ending, Rangoon, Chef and Kaalakandi could not make much at the box office - Baazaar, in fact is performing much better than his recent releases.
Badhaai Ho, however, was unaffected by the plethora of new releases. It remained the first choice of moviegoers. North circuits are contributing enormously to its super score, Adarsh said. BadhaaiHo will cruise past Rs 80 cr mark today, as the second Saturday witnessed 91.18 percent growth, Adarsh said in a tweet.
Question is, will it join the ₹ 100 cr Club? Much depends on how strong it trends till DiwaliOn Friday, the movie collected Rs 3.40 cr, and Saturday Rs 6.50 cr, making a total of Rs 76 cr in India India business.
