Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt starrer “Kalank” has not been received by the audiences in the manner in which the makers would have expected. What’s more, the social media is also flooded with memes and jokes on the movie that further narrate the tale of its failure.
The movie got released on 17th April, 2019, and became the biggest opener of the year with a massive collection of Rs 21.60 crore. It was obviously expected to make a grand opening due to its cast and also because of the fact that it was releasing on a holiday as it was Mahavir Jayanti on that day.
Not to forget to mention, huge hype was created before the release of the flick but it was expected that on the second day, the collections would come down for its being a working weekday. However, the dip in the earnings on Thursday is quite substantial and far more than what had been expected.
“Kalank” has made a collection of Rs 11.45 crore on its second day which brings the total to Rs 33.05 crore.
Day 1 – Rs 21.60 crore
Day 2 – Rs 11.45 crore
Total – Rs 33.05 crore
Here’s what trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Kalank has a fall on Day 2… A decline was on the cards, but the drop is much higher than expected… Will be interesting to see how it fares on Day 3 [#GoodFriday]… Wed 21.60 cr, Thu 11.45 cr. Total: ₹ 33.05 cr. India biz.”
The film is set in the pre-independence era of 1940s and has brought back two veteran superstars Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit together on the big screen after a long time. Other than these, the movie also stars Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur in important roles.
It will be interesting to see how the movie performs on the third day which is also a holiday, i.e., Good Friday.
