NewZNew (Chandigarh) : Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty starrer was promoted to level infinite, all thanks to their Godfather Salman Khan. Sallu, who is known to have launched several starkids, launched Sooraj and Athiya this year. However, Hero, much to our disappointment, didn’t live up to our expectations. Till the first week, the movie minted around Rs 27 crores and it is now read from the trade analysts that the movie has made a business of Rs 30.87 crore within eight days of its release at the Box Office. As Sooraj Pancholi, the suspect behind Jiah Khan’s suicide , made his Bollywood debut, innumerous comparisons were made between him and Tiger Shroff, who too, was launched by Sallu last year in 2014. While Sooraj’s debut venture Hero almost fizzled at the Box Office, Tiger Shroff’s Heropanti managed to collect a cumulative total Rs 55.90 crores in less than a week.This itself is a proof that Tiger has definitely made it big in Bollywood and Soraj has lost it to him. While all the Salmaniacs watched Hero only because their favourite star was promoting it, their hopes were dashed.
Hero 2nd Monday Box Office Business
The storyline of Hero is nothing but blah. For all those who have watched both – Hero and Heropanti, would definitely agree that Tiger is better than Sooraj. In its one week journey, Hero has done the total business of 30.87 crores from Indian screens that includes 21.10 crores of weekend and 9.77 crores in weekdays. Now the movie has entered in second week and competing with three new releases from Bollywood- Katti Batti, MSG 2 The Messenger & Meeruthiya Gangsters. As expected, Hero is lagging behind in performance because of new movies and recorded very less occupancy on its second Monday. It has made the amount of only 54 lacs* as its 11th day collection. Anyhow, Hero is the sequel of Subhash Ghai directorial 1983’s movie with same title that was featured Jackie Shroff & Meenakshi Sheshadri in lead roles. Both lead actors in the new version have shown good efforts to impress audience but unfortunately not get succeeded in doing so.
