Sarkar 3 and Meri Pyaari Bindu box office collection day 2: Parineeti Chopra running head-to-head with Amitabh Bachchan, but are the films really making profit?

Amitabh Bachchan's Sarkar 3 and Ayushmann Khurrana-Parineeti Chopra starrer Meri Pyaari Bindu struggle to stand up to Baahubali 2 menace in the theatres.

Sarkar 3, meri pyaari bindu, sarkar 3 box office collections, meri pyaari bindu box office collection,
Sarkar 3 and Meri Pyaari Bindu face off Baahubali 2 this weekend.

The box office collection for day 2 is here for Meri Pyaari Bindu and Sarkar 3. While Meri Pyaari Bindu has shown a growth of about 25-30 percent in the second day, Sarkar 3 still lays low. According to reports in Box Office India, this could indicate that Sarkar 3 might be less business than the first film. The report also suggested that it is premature to celebrate Meri Pyaari Bindu’s growth, as the film started off really low. Meri Pyaari Bindu’s domestic collection at the end of day 2 is Rs 4 crores, and on Saturday alone, the movie collection  Rs 2.25 Cr, tweeted trade analyst Taran Adarsh. Sarkar 3, on the other hand, collected Rs 4.35 cr. On day 2 alone, the film collected Rs 2.25 Cr.

Even with the raise in occupancy is Delhi NCR, Mumbai and Bengaluru, the Ayushmann Khurrana starrer has collected less than Sarkar 3

Sarkar 3 starring Amitabh Bachchan, and Meri Pyaari Bindy starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra released on May 12 to a below average response from audience. Both the films did not receive good reviews and Amitabh Bachchan was considered the saving grace of this Ram Gopal Varma film. Though the first day collections reflect the daunting path for both the movies, there are redeeming qualities to the movie that might help them from certain failure at box office. That is the coming weekend. Though the first day occupancy percentage of Meri Pyaari Bindu was low, the audience who watched the film stated that the film was one-time watch worthy. While Sarkar 3 managed to colelct Rs 2.25 crore nett, Meri Pyaari Bindu raked Rs 1.75 crore as against Baahubali 2, which pocketed over Rs 11 crore while proudly entering its third week.

Sarkar 3 on the other hand can be saved by the fans who have come to love Sarkar and Sarkar Raj. So far, Baahubali 2 has managed to effect both the films adversely. In fact, even the collections of Baahubali 2 were much higher than Sarkar 3 and Meri Pyaari Bindu combined. So, if both the films manage to pull in audience then maybe the films might perform better than what we saw on Day 1.

Sarkar 3 also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Jackie Shroff, Yami Gautam and Amit Sadh, however, none of their performance seems to have made much of an impression. It is apparent that Sarkar 3 is a one-man show, and that man is the Shahenshah of Bollywood. Meri Pyaari Bindu, on the other hand, is a rom-com that documents the journey of childhood sweethearts. The lady is an aspiring singer, and the man an author. Their romance apparently lacks feeling according to many critics.
