The much discussed and heavily promoted Karan Malhotra direction shamshera was released on Friday last week. With Ranbir Kapoor in a dual role alongside Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor, the film was to get off to a thunderous start. Given the massive size on which Shamshera was mounted and the wide release at 4,350 screens, the film has been touted as the next big release. But contrary to expectations shamshera opened on a disastrous note and continued to remain low through its opening weekend.

In this treasury report we look at the treasury collections of shamshera when compared to previous releases by Ranbir Kapoor. Collecting 31.75 cr. shamshera is now Ranbir’s sixth flop out of the actor’s last eight releases. as it stands Sanjuwho collected Rs. 342.53 cr and Ae Dil Hai Mushkilwho collected Rs. 112.48 cr, are the only two releases from the actors working at the box office. As a matter of fact, shamshera now joins Ranbir Kapoor’s other releases such as Jagga Jasoos the Rs collected. 54.16cr, Tamasha the Rs collected. €67.26, bombay velvet the Rs collected. €23.67, Roy the Rs collected. 44.52 cr and besharam who had collected Rs. 59.79 cr.

Given the current trend shamshera, which would likely see around Rs. 50 kr. came in on the opening weekend has severely underperformed. Going further, as audiences choose to stay away from theaters, the film’s business is unlikely to see much growth.
