Murder 3's box office collections failed to match the performance of the earlier Murder franchises. Murder 3 earned about Rs 17 crore in its first week at the domestic box office and is expected to do a business of over Rs 20 crore.
In comparison, Murder 2 was one of the Bollywood biggest hits of 2011.
Murder 3 had opened to a lukewarm response and its box-office performance failed to pick up. Surprisingly, its single-screen performance was slightly better than in multiplexes.
Murder 3, released on February 15, 2013 features Randeep Hooda, Aditi Rao Hydari and Sara Loren.
All figures are based on net collections (Source: www.boxofficeindia.com)
