On the sixth day, ‘Tejas,’ featuring Kangana Ranaut, managed to collect a mere sum of Rs 5 lakh at the box office – Kangana Ranaut’s airborne action film ‘Tejas’ is experiencing a stagnant performance, as it debuted concurrently with Vikrant Massey’s ’12th Fail’ in cinemas, resulting in a competitive box office showdown. While ’12th Fail’ is steadily gaining traction thanks to favorable buzz, ‘Tejas’ continues to witness daily declines. On November 1, it managed to amass a meager total of only Rs 5.15 crore. In ‘Tejas,’ Kangana takes on the role of Tejas Gill, an Air Force officer.
TEJAS BOX OFFICE COLLECTION
The film ‘Tejas,’ directed by Sarvesh Mewara, made its theatrical debut on October 27, and it has been struggling to gain momentum since its release. On Wednesday, November 1, ‘Tejas’ managed to generate only around Rs 5 lakh at the box office, marking a significant decline from its previous day’s earnings of Rs 45 lakh. Consequently, the total box office collection in India now stands at Rs 5.15 crore. Furthermore, ‘Tejas’ had an overall occupancy rate of 8.39 percent on November 1.
Kangana made an appeal on social media, urging audiences to opt for the theatrical experience for ‘Tejas’ rather than waiting for its OTT release. She posted a video with the caption, “Even before Covid, the number of people attending theaters was dwindling, and post-Covid, the decline has been rapid. Many theaters are facing closure, and despite offering free tickets and various attractive deals, the decline in audience turnout continues. I request everyone to watch films in theaters and relish the experience with family and friends, as otherwise, theaters may not be able to sustain themselves. Thank you.”
Written and directed by Sarvesh Mewara and produced by Ronnie Screwvala, this film features an ensemble cast, including Kangana Ranaut, Anshul Chauhan, Varun Mitra, Ashish Vidyarthi, Vishak Nair, Kashyap Shangari, Sunit Tandon, Rio Kapadia, Mohan Agashe, and Mushtaq Kak.
