There were two significant Bollywood releases today – Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Vidya Balan and Sanjay Dutt starrer Eklavya and Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee starrer Aiyaary.
Let us check how these films performed at the box office :-
From the director of Baby, Special Chhabiss and M.S Dhoni – An Untold Story, much was expected from Neeraj Panday who roped in Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee along with Rakul Preet for a taut action thriller, Aiyaary. Unfortunately, the audience gave a thumbs down to Aiyaary which went to collect Rs 17.01 crore against a budget of Rs 65 crore.
A veteran director and talented star cast is what we could see in Eklavya. Set in the fascinating world of Rajasthan, the Vidhu Vinod Chopra directed Eklavya tells the story of a faithful guard who would do anything to protect his king. The Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Sanjay Dutt and Vidya Balan starrer Eklavya could not impress the audience which managed to collect Rs 18.87 crore against a budget of Rs 30 crore.
