The Dirty Picture has been received by the audience with much love and affection than Akshay’s Desi Boyz. On the first day of its release, ‘Desi Boyz’ has collected 9 crores at the Indian box office whereas ‘The Dirty Picture’ collected 10 crores on the day of its release.
Desi Boyz stars Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone and Chitrangada Singh in the lead roles and is a big budget film. This film was released in 2,200 screens across India. However the makers might have not felt good to hear that the film opened to a dull response with its occupancy ranging between 50% to 65%. Its first earning (Rs 9 crore) was not upto the expectation.
On the other hand ‘The Dirty Picture’ starring Vidya Balan, Emraan Hashmi, Naseeruddin Shah and Tusshar Kapoor is a medium budget film. This movie was released in 1,600 centres across India. The movie registered 60-65% collection, while its occupancy in single screens ranged between 75% to 80%.
Comparing the volume of the release, Vidya’s film has done far better than Akshay’s movie at the box office. The Dirty Picture not only received rave reviews from the critics but also collected good response from the audience in terms of box office collection. For those who entered the theaters with a fantasy of seeing the raunchy show of Vidya in the film came out with a feeling of awakening and enlightenment.
