The Shaukeens continued to be dull over its second Monday. The film collected approximately Rs 45 lacs in its kitty on its day 11. It now stands with a total collection of Rs 31.65 crores at Box Office India.
The film had a very dull start at the ticket-windows. In spite of being a comedy drama and being well promoted by Akshay Kumar, who has a cameo role in the film, it did not really benefit it. The film had highly disappointing remarks in majority of the areas. It has been performing decent enough only at the multiplexes in urban centres. The new releases majorly affected the performance of the film at the ticket-windows.
The Shaukeens is the remake of Basu Chatterjee’s 1982 hit of the same name. The original film had three old men in their 50s – Ashok Kumar, Utpal Dutt and AK Hangal – as the centre of the plot.
The remake of the film is directed by Abhishek Sharma, and it stars Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher, Piyush Mishra, Annu Kapoor and Lisa Haydon in the lead roles.
