Zero Box Office Collections Day 5: Expectedly, Zero showed some improvement in footfalls on Tuesday, owing to the national holiday of Christmas. Ideally, with the film playing at around 4400 screens, the film should have brought in at least 20 crores.
However, one did have an inkling that it won’t turn out to be the case, given the kind of trending that the film had seen ever since its release.
Still, with 12.75 crores coming in, collections have elevated to some extent at the least. Currently standing at 81.32 crores, the Shah Rukh Khan starrer still hasn’t reached an optimal level after running in theaters for five days. However, one now waits to see the kind of numbers that come in today and tomorrow. As such a biggie like this should be scoring in double digits for every day of the first week. That won’t be possible though as after a huge holiday like Christmas, the film is bound to see a decline when compared to the Monday numbers.
The film will cross Fan lifetime of 85 crores today and then head for the 100 crore mark. Its next big target though would be to surpass the lifetime numbers of Raees which had collected 137.51 crores after scoring an opening week of 109.01 crores. Considering the fact that Simmba is arriving this Friday, it is going to be a tough race indeed.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
