    Remember, this is the second weekend box office numbers.

    In the first weekend, Ghajini was way ahead of Kambakkht Trash.

    For every smart man/woman like you who misses Kambakkht trash, there are a thousand dolts desperate to see Kareena’s bikini scene (rubbish).

    the movie sets a new low?

    Singh is Kinng and Chandni Chowk to China were at record-low rates of 69.8% and 80.1%, as per the above table..!

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    We meant a new low in quality. But what would Akshay Kumar know about quality?

    When Akshay is not into stolen moves (remember Heyy Baby), he’s into trash like Singh is Kinng, Chandni Chowk to China or Kambakkht Ishq.

    Back in india, KI team is claiming this to be the biggest commercial hit and calling Akshay is now the king of bollywood. They r having parties for celebrating their success and saying that it has got nearly 100 million rupees. Your comments?

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Back in India, there’s always a crowd of onlookers when a bunch of monkeys resort to their simian antics on the street.

    Now, extend this same logic to the big screen. Or people there are so starved of sex and nudity that drooling like lapdogs they went to watch the weird-looking Kareena Kapoor in the bikini scene.

    How else can you explain this nonsense of garbage like KI bringing in Rs 100 crore?

    Going by his recent movies, Akshay Kumar is nothing but the King of Bollywood Trash.

    Its all fake. Did they show any credible source?

    They do all this hoping that atleast few will turn up looking at those ads. This movie is big flop.

    You write: Did they show any credible source?

    Well, they hosted grand parties to trumpet the grand success. Ha ha ha.

    Mindless idiots… They know it is a flop. But couldn’t accept it, so incurring further losses.

    I was extremely nervous. I couldn’t sleep. What if KAMBAKKHT ISHQ doesn’t open well? That thought kept bothering me,” Akshay admits. But now that the film has fetched a superb start, the actor is feeling relieved. “Aaj raat achchi neend aayegi,” he flashes his charismatic smile, when he’s told that the film should have a record-breaking opening weekend. – Akshay Kumar in an interview with India FM

    Eros is claiming that the movie has made 100 crore worldwide in it’s first week. Now this could or could not be true as who knows about the business other than USA and India. But what we do know is that the movie dropped 70% in week two and has made 43 crore so far making it only above average in India. With other new releases, the movie has slim chance to be a hit. Forget about being a superhit or blockbuster.
