3rd Day Collection: The latest Bollywood outing of Emraan Hashmi, Why Cheat India had some quite buzz before its release. But, upon releasing, it’s facing severe competition from Vicky Kaushal’s Uri: The Surgical Strike and Ranveer Singh’s Simmba. Hashmi’s WCI opened to a mere collection of Rs 1.71 cr at the box office on its 1st day. On 2nd day (Saturday), it earned Rs 2.29 cr making its 2 days total to Rs 4 cr.

Soumik Sen has written and directed Why Cheat India. Besides Emraan, the film also stars Shreya Dhanwanthary. Now, only a miracle can save Emraan’s movie from being outcast and declared as debacle. Today, Sunday is a holiday and we are hoping it to witness some growth as films generally experiences high footfalls on 1st weekend as compared to other days. (check: Uri 10th day collection.)
It registered some growth on 1st Saturday, so it should see some more growth on third day. However, it looks a very difficult for the flick after Monday. In the film, Emraan plays Rakesh Singh who helps rich candidates in getting seats in medical and engineering entrance exams by making smart students sit in their places during the examination.
Upon its release, Why Cheat India garnered mixed reviews from the critics. It also seems that the film has not gained required attention from the audience either. Also, the stars have also got mixed ratings. Its business at the box office is being impacted by military drama Uri and cop movie Simmba. It will certainly sink going by this trend. Only highly positive word of mouth can save it from now onwards.
Why Cheat India 3rd day collection – Rs. 3 cr (early estimates)
It was released a day earlier at the overseas markets where it collected Rs 4.69 lakhs from 17 screens at the Australian box office and Rs 90,208 from 8 screens in New Zealand according to the reports of BoxOfficeIndia.com. Not only WCI, the other films which released alongside it – Govinda’s Rangeela Raja and Arshad Warsi’s Fraud Saiyyan failed to make noise at the BO. They have been badly rejected by both moviegoers and critics as well.
