Saif Ali Khan’s latest film Baazaar has failed to make any impact at the box office. The opening day collections of Baazaar were poor as the film only collected Rs 2.75 crore nett at the box office. However, on Day 2 i.e. Saturday, the box office collections showed a decent growth. According to Box Office India, Saif’s movie collected Rs 3.75 crore which is 35 per cent growth. The total collections of Baazaar now stand at Rs 6.50 crore (Friday – Rs 2.75 crore approx, Saturday – Rs 3.75 crore approx). According to production house figures, the film earned Rs 4.10 crores with the total standing at Rs 7.17 crore (NBOC).
The total box office collection now stands at Rs. 7.17 crores.
Trade analyst Girish Johar had earlier shared, “It is Saif Ali Khan who is driving the film. The makers have tried to target the Gujarati community and it is expected to earn something around Rs 10 crores. It highly depends on the reviews and the word of mouth.”
The stock market thriller Baazaar is based on money making. Saif plays the role of Shakun Kothari, a sharp and money-minded businessman, for whom business is everything. Rohan Mehra, son of late actor Vinod Mehra, makes his debut with the film. He plays Rizwan Ahmed, who works under Shakun Kothari. The Gauravv K Chawla-directed film brings together Saif Ali Khan and Radhika Apte for the second time on screen, after Sacred Games. Chitrangada Singh is also part of the film.
