Wajah Tum Ho had a low weekend at the Box Office as 8.5 crores* came in. If one compares these numbers with the opening numbers of director Vishal Pandya’s last film belonging to the same (erotic thriller) genre, Hate Story 3, it pretty much tells the tale.
That film had collected 9.72 crore on just its opening day while Wajah Tum Ho has managed lesser numbers over the entire weekend.
Overall though, the weekend has been quite low for Bollywood with just 18 crore coming in from all the films running over the weekend when the available capacity was to earn 100-120 crore. That comes to 15% overall occupancy in theaters, which pretty much tells the terrible situation that the industry is finding itself in currently.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
Note: All collections as per production and distribution sources
