Kapoor and Sons 340x - Sidharth Malhotra, Fawad Khan, Alia Bhatt

This week sees the release of Kapoor and Sons۪, starring Rishi Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra, Fawad Khan and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles. Surprisingly, the film has had a dull opening day so far in the sub-continent.

Produced by Dharma Productions and directed by Shakun Batra, the film۪s trailers and music have delivered an average response with the audiences. Box Office India reports that the film is achieving around 15-20% occupancy which is similar to what was achieved by Jai Gangaajal۪ (2015). It is expected that Kapoor and Sons۪ will rely on word of mouth and reviews in order for the day۪s business to kick up and then reflect on the weekend.

Last week۪s Teraa Suroor۪ has made around 6.75 crore which is pretty low. Jai Gangaajal۪ has reached around 30 crore in two weeks but Neerja۪ still seems to be going strong a month after its release with 5.5 crore achieved this week.
