MUMBAI: Ashima Chibber’s loud and raucous ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’, starring Ram Kapoor, Saqib Saleem and Rhea Chakraborty, produced by Y Films has had a slow two weeks at the box office.
The film, which revolves around a boisterous Punjabi family and the son’s quest to retrieve his father’s lost Maruti car, has understandably seen it’s best business in parts of Northern India like Delhi and Punjab, which could connect with the content and tone of the film.
Now after two weeks, the film is in the range of Rs 109 million (Rs 10.90 crore) net.
By week one the total of ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’ stood at approximately Rs 78.2 million (7.82 crore) net.
As reported, Day 1 of ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’ saw low earnings of about Rs 10 million (Rs 1 crore) net at the ticket windows. The first weekend (3 day) total of the film was in the range of Rs 44.5 million (Rs 4.45 crore) net, a dull figure.
Day 4 and Day 5- Monday and Tuesday, brought no respite, with ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’ managing to garner only Rs 61.2 million (Rs 6.12 crore) net.
With a slew of other films posing as competition at the box office, it looks unlikely that ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’ will be able to sustain for much longer.
