This weekend all eyes are on the 2 new Bollywood releases – Badhaai Ho & Namaste England. Here is the box-office update about the opening of the films.
As per the trade, Badhaai Ho has taken a good opening of around 30-35% while Namaste London is poor at around 10-15%. The trailer of Badhaai Ho seemed to have been received well by the public and it’s hero Ayushmann Khurrana has had a recent success with the crime-thriller Andhadhun. Namaste England on the other hand can boast of the hit pair of Ishaqzaade – Arjun Kapoor & Parineeti Chopra and some decent music but somehow the promos of the film seemed to have the audiences’ thanda and hence despite having higher star value, it does not seem to have started off too well at the box-office.
If one sees Badhaai Ho has nearly double the opening of Namaste England. If the trend continues then there is a chance Badhaai Ho may manage to get more screenings at multiplexes later on.
One will have to wait and watch as to which film will eventually emerge the winner in the box-office sweepstakes.
