Zero Box Office Weekend 1: Starring Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif, the film released on Friday with mixed critical reception. The movie opened below expectations as 20.14 crores came in on opening day. After taking a fair opening, it was expected to see growth or at least to stay stable on Saturday but the movie failed in doing so.
Zero witnessed a drop on day 2 by adding 18.22 crores more and taking the total to 38.36 crores. With mixed word-of-mouth, the movie might jump on Sunday but that would be just limited. Zero is one of the lowest openers for SRK and far away from reaching into his top 3 first weekend grossers.
Happy New Year collected 108.86 crores in its opening weekend and still holds the record of being Khan’s highest opening weekend. Chennai Express made a mammoth total of 100.35 crores (Including paid previews) in its opening weekend. Crime thriller Raees despite a clash with Kaabil collected a grand total of 93.25 crores in its 5-day extended weekend. Dilwale is at the 4th spot with a collection of 65.09 crores in the first weekend. At 5th place, Fan holds the position with 52.35 crores.
For now, it looks like, given the limited growth Zero might end up at the 5th spot, for which it needs another 13.99 crores on Sunday. To surpass Dilwale for the 4th spot, Zero needs 26.73 crores coming today, which as for now looks out of reach.
