Bollywood Box Office: Maidaan and BMCM’s 200 Crore Loss

The Bollywood box office saw the release of two highly anticipated films over the weekend: “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan” and “Maidaan.” These movies feature A-list stars like Akshay Kumar, Tiger Shroff, and Ajay Devgan, generating significant buzz among audiences. However, despite the star power, both films are facing major financial setbacks, with projections indicating losses exceeding Rs 100 crore each.

“Bade Miyan Chote Miyan,” headlined by Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff, managed to collect Rs 36 crore nett in its opening weekend. However, this amount falls far short of recovering the massive investments made in the film, which reportedly exceed Rs 350 crore. Even factoring in revenue from OTT and satellite rights, the film is still projected to suffer losses exceeding Rs 100 crore.

Similarly, “Maidaan,” starring Ajay Devgan, encountered challenges at the box office. Despite a reported production cost of Rs 250 crore, the film only amassed Rs 21 crore in its first weekend. Like “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan,” “Maidaan” is also expected to incur losses exceeding Rs 100 crore, even with non-theatrical deals factored in.

The disappointing performance of these two films has dealt a significant blow to the Bollywood trade. With both movies on track to incur substantial losses, industry analysts are closely monitoring the situation to assess the broader implications for the film industry.

Maidaan and BMCM BO Loss

“Maidaan” faced initial struggles in gaining traction at the box office, with an estimated collection of Rs 15.60 crore net across India in its first three days. However, there was a slight improvement on the fourth day, with early estimates indicating earnings of around Rs 6.25 crore net across all languages.

Meanwhile, “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan” saw a steady decline in box office collections after its opening day. The film earned Rs 15.65 crore on the first Thursday, followed by Rs 7.6 crore on Friday, Rs 8.5 crore on Saturday, and Rs 9 crore on Sunday. Overall, the film’s total nett collection stands at Rs 40.75 crore. Despite these figures, both films continue to struggle to break even and are poised to leave a significant dent in the Bollywood trad
