John Abraham’s Batla House might have been on the lower side at the ticket windows when compared with Akshay Kumar’s Mission Mangal, but managing to rake in some good numbers given its not-so-massy treatment.
Batla House clocked 12.70 crores on day 4 i.e. Sunday to the 4-day extended weekend total to 47.99 crores, thus inching closer to the half-century mark. Now as per the latest trends suggest, the movie might remain stable on its first weekday with an occupancy ranging from 12-15% for the morning shows. It is a bit lower than Friday’s morning occupancy of around 15%. The movie is expected to gain momentum post evening shows.
Recently, actor John Abraham said that the worst criticism he has faced since the time he entered Bollywood is that he doesn’t “deserve to be in this industry”.
“‘I don’t deserve to be in this industry’ is the worst piece of criticism I’ve ever received. I got that from Day One. It’s been about 17 years since then. Most people who said that are now married with children, half of them have retired, some have left their jobs. I am still here,” John said.
After a brief successful stint in modelling, John entered Bollywood with “Jism” in 2013. He went on to do projects such as “Paap”, “Dhoom”, “Garam Masala”, “Baabul”, “Dostana”, “New York”, “Housefull 2”, “Madras Cafe”, “Dishoom”, “Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran”, “Romeo Akbar Walter” and “Batla House”. John has expanded his horizons and entered the filmmaking business as a producer as well.
