Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez’s film A Gentleman had been generating good buzz among the audience before its release. However, it seems on day one of its release, the much-talked about chemistry of the lead actors has not translated into a big opening at the box office. The film has earned only Rs 4.04 crore, as per trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
With 8-10 films including various Hollywood, Bollywood and regional flicks, the theatres are cluttered with a lot of options for movie goers. However, with two more days to decide the course of the Jacqueline-Sidharth starrer, it is to be seen if the film stands out and give good competition to other releases.
From high octane action sequences to Jacqueline trying her hand at pole dancing, the film offers all the elements of a perfect Bollywood masala. So far, the audience looks inclined towards watching this one despite the film getting average reviews.
“A Gentleman will have more audience because it has got more screens than Babumoshai Bandookbaaz. It should lead the box office this Friday. By Sunday, A Gentleman is expected to earn somewhere between 15 crore,” trade analyst Girish Johar had told us earlier.

In the Bollywood arena, the film will face competition from Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, Qaidi Band and Sniff. All these films belong to different genres, targeting various kinds of audience.
Girish Johar had also explained that although it is quite evident that A Gentleman will be the highest earner this week, however, lately Annabelle: Creation has managed to create a fanbase of its own and is bound to stand as a huge competition for all the Bollywood releases.
A Gentleman marks Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez’s first on-screen romance. The two had shared the couch on Koffee With Karan Season 5 and since then have been the talk of the town for their crackling chemistry.
