Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Shreyas Talpade starrer Poster Boys released in approximately 1000 screens. The film had low occupancy in the morning around 15-20% and it has collected around Rs. 1.80 crore on day one. The film marks directorial debut of Shreyas Talpade and is a remake of Marathi film which did well. However, trade experts had predicted that the film might not do too well at box office because it will have to face competition from last week’s releases Ajay Devgn’s Baadshaho, which starred Emraan Hashmi, Ileana D’ Cruz and Esha Gupta as well as from Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar’s Shubh Mangal Savdhan. Both the films have been doing decent business at box office in the second week.
