R. Balki's much hyped Amitabh Bachchan-Dhanush-Akshara Haasan starrer 'Shamitabh' has failed to set the cash registers ringing at the box office. According to trade analysts, the film has done well in South India due to the presence of Dhanush and to an extent, Akshara Haasan.
It is doing decently at multiplexes in Mumbai and Delhi. It has been unable to impress the single-screen audience and reviews for the movie have been mixed.
The opening 3-day collections for the movie is around 12 crores, which is quite below expectations. 'Shamitabh' has weak competion this week with other releases being not noticed at all. It would be interesting to see how the movie fares this week and if it manages to extend its run at the box office with releases like 'Roy' and 'Badlapur' set to hit screens in the next couple of weeks.
