"Joker", starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha, released Aug 31. Despite lot of innovative publicity campaigns, the film, centred around the theme of extra-terrestrials, is said to have collected only a little over Rs.15 crore in its opening weekend.
"'Joker' has done very bad business. In three days, the film must have collected approximately Rs.15 crore from all over India. The film shall hardly run for a week, not more than that," Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines, told IANS.
Trade guru Taran Adarsh tweeted: "'Joker' collected approximately Rs.15.50 crore to 15.75 crore nett in weekend 1. Breakup: Friday Rs.5 crore, Saturday Rs.4.75 crore, Sunday Rs.5.75 crore to Rs.6 crore. Disappointment!"
In Rajasthan, the film has done very dull business, said Sunil Bansal of Yash Raj Jai Pictures Pvt Ltd.
"It has hardly managed collections of around 30 to 35 percent in three days. Today morning, it had fallen down drastically," Bansal, Rajasthan-based distributor, told IANS.
According to another source, the movie collected only Rs.3.25 crore from New Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, and from Punjab, it managed to mint Rs.1.35 crore in the opening weekend.
"The film will hardly survive for a week," added the source.
Kunder's last release was the 2006 film "Jaan E Mann", which did average business.

Yeah, maybe cause it was a crap movie. No story, pathetic actors, ten billion songs. Just as we were thinking nothing could get worse than Tees Maar Khan, Kunder surprises us by making a worse film like Joker. No wonder, Bollywood is going downnn because of such crappy, apprently "directors". I don't get how Akshay and Sonakshi agreed to doing such a rubbish film!
