Tashan has fared badly at the U.S. box office with one of the poorest openings for a Bollywood movie in recent months.
Starring Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor, Tashan comes from Yash Raj Films.
For the opening weekend (April 25-27, 2008), Tashan came in at No-24 with a gross of $301,226.
Average gross per theater for Tashan, which opened in 75 theaters, was $4,016.
Tashan did better than Aaja Nachle in opening gross but worse than Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, both from the Yash Raj stable.
Considering the deplorable quality of the movie, it’s no surprise that Tashan got the cold shoulder from the audience.
As SearchIndia.com put it in its review of Tashan:
Utterly bereft of anything worthwhile and an ugly amalgam of bad logic, rotten story, pitiful acting, ordinary photography and ear-damaging music, Tashan is a complete horror show, the likes of which have not been seen in Bollywood in a long, long time.
