Shraddha Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor starrer latest release Batti Gul Meter Chalu did not live up to the expectations and as a result of that, it failed to post a good total in the first week. The film had an average opening and then did not have good growth during the first weekend. So, a big first-week collection was out of the equation.
As per the box office reports, the movie garnered only 34.43 crore in its first seven days at the box office. With big names like Shahid and Shraddha in the film, it was expected to collect way more than it has till now. The film is about the inflated electricity bills and how it impacts the lives of the common people. Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, the film also stars Yami Gautam.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the collection of the movie on twitter. “#BattiGulMeterChalu is below the mark… Had a lacklustre weekend, while the trending on weekdays was weak… Fri 6.76 cr, Sat 7.96 cr, Sun 8.54 cr, Mon 3.16 cr, Tue 2.91 cr, Wed 2.65 cr, Thu 2.45 cr. Total: ₹ 34.43 cr. India biz. #BGMC“, he wrote.
