‘Zero’ crosses Rs. 50 cr mark, struggles to make a mark

New Delhi [India], Dec 24 (ANI): Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Zero’ has crossed the 50 crore mark in India as it continues to struggle at the box office despite extensive promotions.

The film minted Rs. 20.14 crore on Friday, and witnessed a drop on Saturday with earning around Rs. 17 crores (approx) and Rs 18.25 crore (approx) on Sunday, paving its way through to the 50 crore club, according to Box Office India.

Even after so much hype, it failed to reach its Friday figures on Saturday and Sunday. The film witnessed a dull first weekend and it remains to be seen if it can benefit from Christmas holiday on Tuesday. The first-weekend business is very similar to SRK’s ‘Fan’ but better than ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’.

The film is performing best in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. King Khan’s strongholds like West Bengal, Mysore, Tamil Nadu and Kerala have collected poorly just like Mumbai.

Helmed by Aanand L Rai, the romantic drama has garnered mixed response from the audience as well as critics.

‘Zero’ highlights the journey of Bauua Singh, a dwarf, played by Shah Rukh, who is on a lookout for a bride. Katrina plays the role of an actress, battling alcoholism while Anushka portrays a challenging character of a scientist with cerebral palsy in the film.
