Earnings of Ek Deewana Tha as of 19th February 2012 is 3.5 – 4 crores
With nothing but negative reviews flowing in, it wasn’t a surprise to predict that Ek Deewana Tha is purely going to be a flop show. With all the hype created by the movie it was shocking to witness empty movie theaters all over the country.
The average occupancy rate for the movie wasn’t even more than 5-10%. It is as much as multiplexes are seeing for the previous release Ek Main Ekk Tu. In fact we won’t be surprised if Ek Main Ekk Tu still keeps doing better business than that of Ek Deewana Tha. The former seems the only option available to cinema buffs all over the country.
The first day collection for the movie was merely 60 lacks. It performed pretty poorly in all the circles. Here are a few examples:
- Delhi/UP – 12 lakhs
- East Punjab – 5 lakhs
- CP Berar – 3 lakhs
- Mysore – 5 lakhs
We do not expect the movie to make over 2.5 crores this weekend. Let’s see if weekend brings in some fresh collections for the movie or is it doomed forever.
The release of highly awaited films like Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya and Jodi Breakers in the coming weeks might actually help the industry but till then it will have to do with Ek Main Ekk Tu I guess.
Continuing its poor performance at the Box Office Ek Deewana Tha made a mere 2.75-3 crores on its first weekend. It was an escalation from the opening day collection but still lower than the collection of Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu. Doesn’t look like the movie is going to survive another week at the box office.
