Angrezi Medium Box Office: In its opening weekend, Hindi Medium had collected 12.56 crores and that too after opening at 2.81 crores. Now the second in the franchise, Angrezi Medium, has ended up staying below that total despite having a better opening day of 4.03 crores. The film’s collections stand at 10.03 crores* and a major reason for that is shutting down of several theaters across the country owing to corona virus scare.
Agreed that the film’s content too wouldn’t have allowed a huge jump on Saturday and Sunday. Still, the collections would have been far better than what they are currently. Right now, there is no space available for word of mouth to spread either and that can be seen from the numbers that are coming in.
On Sunday, the day when collections could have really gone up (especially in Delhi), only 3 crores* more came in, which pretty much tells the tale. One can well imagine how the collections would turn out to be now during the weekdays as footfalls anyways go down post the weekend. This has turned out to be an unfortunate situation indeed for all associated with the film and as of now, one can’t really put a number to the eventual total that Angrezi Medium would end up having at the box office.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
