Akshay Kumar and Tamannaah Bhatia starrer Entertainment۪ is the sole Bollywood release today and early indications are that it۪s had a pretty mixed bag in terms of box office collections.

In some parts of the sub-continent it has enjoyed 45-50% occupancy, according to Box Office India. However, in other areas, ticket windows have been very quiet. The film was expected to do considerably lower in ticket collections in Punjab as Yash Raj Films۪ production Aa Gaye Munde UK De۪ also released today. However, Entertainment۪ has fared better in those regions than the Punjabi film which is a rarity somewhat.

Next week sees the release of Singham Returns۪ and director Rohit Shetty۪s films seems to hit the jackpot at the box office. It would be right to say that Entertainment۪ could pick up during the weekend through word of mouth but whether it will survive beyond next week remains to be seen.

Sajid Nadiadwala۪s Kick۪ has become one of the highest grossing films of all time and has entered the 200 crore club just this week.
