Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer Zero has remained steady at the box office. On the third day, the film earned Rs 20.71 crore taking its total earnings to Rs 59.07 crore. Despite extensive promotions and a wide release in around 4,380 screens, the film hasn’t been able to make a strong impact at the box office.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Zero has clearly underperformed… Remained on similar levels over the weekend… No turnaround / big jump in biz… #Christmas holiday [tomorrow] should boost biz… Real test on Wed and Thu… Fri 20.14 cr, Sat 18.22 cr, Sun 20.71 cr. Total: ₹ 59.07 cr. India biz.”

The film collected Rs 20.14 crore on its opening day. And on Saturday, it merely earned Rs 18.22 crore. Helmed by Aanand L Rai, Zero has garnered mixed reviews from the audience as well as critics.
With the Christmas holiday on Tuesday, the film’s collections might rise. Zero will face stiff competition from Ranveer Singh starrer Simmba that releases on December 28.
The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta, in her review, wrote, “In the beginning, you relate, because you see Bauua the ‘bauna’ having a tough time finding his groove, always tussling with mum (Chaddha) and dad (Dhulia). You relate too when Bauua show flashes of rage at his situation, and lashes out at people. But all too soon, the film abandons its minimal air of rootedness, and flees towards preposterousness.”
Directed by Aanand L Rai, Zero stars Anushka Sharma, Katrina Kaif and Shah Rukh Khan in lead roles.
