Fitoor has entered the record books for being one of the Biggest Disasters ever. The film had a poor start, didn’t really see a respectable jump over the weekend, and then fell flat during the weekdays. As a result, the film collected under 20 crore* at the Box Office. With hardly any numbers expected to come by in the week to come, the film would go down as one of the lowest grossers ever for a film with a major star and big budget.

This is how the lifetime collections of some of the major disappointments look like:

RGV Ki Aag8 crore

Drona13.4 crore

Tezz15.85 crore

Happy Ending22 crore

Fitoor 22-23 crore (expected lifetime)

Joker22.5 crore

Bombay Velvet 23 crore

Raavan28.98 crore

Players29 crore

Guzaarish29.56 crore

Meanwhile, as is always the case with disasters like these, daggers are out on the most saleable name of the lot – Katrina Kaif. Nothing can be more foolhardy than this as she is the same woman who is coming with a flurry of hits and blockbusters behind her. Her last five films have done a combined business of around 850 crore [Phantom53 crore, Bang Bang181 crore, Dhoom 3 284 crore, Jab Tak Hai Jaan122 crore, Ek Tha Tiger199 crore] and nothing could be more shortsighted than writing her off. In fact even a mention of something like that is nothing less than sacrilege. She is a superstar and here to stay.

* Final numbers awaited
