The most awaited film Shamitabh finally released last Friday. Going by its first weekend box office collection, Amitabh Bachchan’s Shamitabh had an average slow start. On the first day, R Balki’s Shamitabh managed to pull around Rs. 3. 5 Crore (35 million), though it was predicted that the film would at least earn around Rs. 5 Crore (50 million) or so.
Nonetheless, on its second day, the film collected around Rs. 4.25 Crore (42.5 million). Now after its first weekend, Amitabh Bachchan’s Shamitabh managed to only pull around Rs 12.75 Crore (127.5 million) at the Box Office.
Going by the trailer, poster and promotional activity, it was expected that Shamitabh at least would end up earning more than 20 Crore (200 million) in its first week. Nonetheless, the experts still have hopes with the film, as Big B’s Shamitabh’s box office numbers are slowly picking up each passing day.
Big B plays a drunkard film industry veteran, and when Amitabh and Dhanush finally meet, the journey of Shamitabh begins, and also their hidden rivalry. People loved Amitabh Bachchan’s performance in the film. Audiences also praised Dhanush, whereas, Akshara was loved by the viewers, too. The actress made her Bollywood debut with Shamitabh.
