No one had expected that the rocking combo of Shah Rukh Khan and director Aanand L Rai will deliver such content that will fail to impress the audience. With colossal expectations, Zero arrived at the box office last weekend and received a complete rejection from the movie buffs. The film raked in Rs 59.07 crore in its opening weekend, which is way below expectations considering an SRK film.
And now comes one more shocking part at the box office in the form of Yash’s Kannada film KGF which clashed with Zero at the ticket windows. The film has performed better than Shah Rukh Khan’s film as it raked in Rs 59.70 crore.
The numbers of KGF are more commendable since the period thriller was released in just 2460 screens as against Zero which has 4380 screens under its kitty. So, despite having less than half the number of screens, Yash’s KGF emerged victorious, which clearly shows that the audience has chosen content over a superstar. Looking at the current buzz, we are expecting KGF to hold well in the weekdays and the negative word of mouth is sure to affect the business of Zero.
