Zero has had an exciting ride starting to its box office journey. The first weekend execution did not work out of course in spite of good buzz and broad advancements. On its first weekday, the Shah Rukh Khan starrer saw a noteworthy plunge in its collection. However, the film got on Christmas. It earned Rs 12.75 crore on Tuesday.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the film’s box office collection on Twitter. He wrote, “#Zero witnessed growth on Day 5 [#Christmas]… Day 6 [Wed] and Day 7 [Thu] biz crucial… Fri 20.14 cr, Sat 18.22 cr, Sun 20.71 cr, Mon 9.50 cr, Tue 12.75 cr. Total: ₹ 81.32 cr. India biz.”
Zero box office collection Day 5 Earns Rs 12.75 crore
Zero collected a sum of Rs 59.07 crore in its first weekend. Subsequent to winning Rs 20.14 crore on its first day, Zero saw a plunge in its collections because of negative audits. However, it was back on track on Sunday with a Rs 20.71 crore collection.
The Anushka Sharma starrer received mixed reviews. A critic from a popular news source Shubhra Gupta wrote, “Challenged people in challenging circumstances trying to find intimacy is a great premise, especially if there is awareness of how ‘out- of- the- norm’ people are forced to deal with so-called normal people. And Zero could have done it thrice over, because Aafia (Sharma), one of its female characters, is a wheelchair-bound NASA scientist with cerebral palsy. The other is a reigning film star called Babita (Kaif) who shows her hurt, vulnerable side, in a couple of unvarnished moments. But Zero fails spectacularly at giving us anything we can believe in, and we go from start to finish, with disbelief growing with each passing frame.”
Director Aanand L Rai, the actor had said, “Aanand L Rai is one of the few directors, I have seen all the films of. I have been in touch with him since his first movie. His most unique trait is that he is in touch with pan-India audience. He is not a metro-centric filmmaker. He has a very strong emotional core in all his films and his women characters are very strong. They are never incidental. They are never one dimensional.”
With respect to her co-star Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina commented SRK is aware of the way that women in his movies get their due, which reflects in the sort of characters that female actors play in his projects.
