Akshay Kumar's Boss FLOPS at box office

Akshay Kumar's Boss flops at box office

Last week saw two releases, Boss and Shahid.

Akshay Kumar-starrer Boss opened to an average response on Wednesday but it failed to sustain through the week.

Shahid found appreciation but no collections to match. A Mumbai-centric film, it faced a lot of opposition in the city due to the ongoing 15th Mumbai Film Festival which kept film buffs busy.

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the box office verdict for the week.

Director: Anthony D'Souza
