There were two significant Bollywood films which were released today in the past years -Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai starrer romance drama Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and and Ajay Devgan mega-budgeted action-thriller Shivaay. Let us check how the films fared at the box office.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016)
While Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Fawad Khan, took a good opening thanks to the controversy surrounding the film. Though the trailers were lacking the buzz, the music and the controversy of featuring a Pakistani actor in the romantic drama had created publicity which was way beyond the expectations and created some fireworks at the box office bringing the box office collections to a sensational 112.48 crore crores against a budget of Rs 70 crore.
On the other hand, Ajay Devgan with high-octane action trailer for Shivaay did not start off well initially but the magic started working post-Diwali. The collections remained steady at the domestic box office, bringing the collections to Rs 100.45 crores against a budget of Rs 100 crore.
