Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has released his new film Bell Bottom amid the coronavirus pandemic. In this film, actresses like Lara Dutta, Vaani Kapoor, and Huma Qureshi are also seen in lead roles alongside Akshay Kumar.
Akshay Kumar's spy thriller 'Bell Bottom' seems to be crawling at the box office amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The film has ended its 9-day long weekend but its figures are very worrying.
The film has earned only ₹95 lakhs from the theaters on its 9th day, taking the total Bell Bottom Box office collection to around ₹20 crores. Trade experts are estimating that the film Bell Bottom will do a business of ₹23 crores in theaters by the end of its second weekend.
Bell Bottom Box Office collection is also less because these days theaters in Maharashtra are closed. The Maharashtra government has not yet given permission to open cinema halls. The second wave of the Corona epidemic had caused a lot of damage to Maharashtra, due to which the Chief Minister there has not yet given permission to open cinema halls yet.
Trade experts are of the opinion that if theaters in Maharashtra were open, then Bell Bottom's earnings could have increased by 10 crores. About 30% of the earnings of any Bollywood film comes from the Maharashtra circuit.
By the way, given the circumstances of Corona, the earnings of Akshay Kumar starrer Bell Bottom cannot be underestimated. These days, not only the cinema halls of the country are opening with an occupancy of 50%, but the audience is also afraid to go out of their homes.
In such a situation, People are turning to OTT to watch films, but after looking at Bell Bottom Box office collection day, it can be said that by earning about 20 crores in the first weekend, big stars will be able to bring the audience to theaters in the coming time.
