Mounted on a massive With a budget of 150 crore, Shamshera marked Ranbir Kapoor’s return to the big screen after four years. Add to that the scale of the film and a large production house backing it, and it was expected to have a massive opening. However, this did not happen. Karan Malhotra’s film also stars Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor and tells the story of a rebel’s battle against a brutal general enslaving his tribe in 19th century India.

A Box Office India report says that while the film saw “around 20% growth in mass pockets”, those areas saw growth of up to 50% for other major films on Sundays. This means that Shamshera’s growth is a little lower than normal. The film collected 11-12 crore on Sunday, a meager 10% growth over the previous two days. This brought its overall national collections during its opening weekend to 31 crores.

Given this lack of growth, many industry insiders predicted a steep drop for the film at the end of the weekend. Given that the pan-Indian film Vikrant Rona will be widely released next week, Shamshera is bound to suffer. Many have predicted that the movie’s lifetime activity won’t even cross the 50 crore mark. Film trade analyst Sumit Kadel tweeted on Monday, “#Shamshera had a dismal weekend of 31.25 cr. Lifetime collection to wrap under 50 cr net.

Following these disappointing returns, Ranbir may want to focus on his next Brahmastra release. The fantasy fiction extravaganza was made on an even grander scale than Shamshera, with a reported budget of 300 crores. Ayan Mukerji’s film also stars Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy. It comes out on September 9.
