Akshay Kumar’s The Shaukeens showed an average growth on its second Sunday. The film collected nearly Rs 1.2 crore on its 10th day. So now the film stands with a total collection of Rs 31.20 crore at Box Office India.
The film dropped mainly during the week, and even on the second weekend, it did not even show much growth at the silver screens. Even though the film was well promoted by Akshay Kumar, who has a cameo role in the film, it did not really benefit it.
The film has received mixed responses and had a highly disappointing remarks in majority of the areas. It has been performing decent enough only at the multiplexes in urban centres.
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.
