Box Office: Great Grand Masti opens poorly

July 18, 2016 16:32 IST

The hits and misses of the week.

Like Vivek Oberoi said at a press conference recently, piracy killed his latest film, Great Grand Masti. The film opened poorly at the box office, as it had been leaked 17 days before its scheduled release date.

Salman Khan's Sultan, on the other hand, is a superhit.

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the weekly box office verdict.
