Begum Jaan box office collection day 3 witnessed a steep fall on Saturday. Vidya Balan film that released on April 14, 2017 is now reported to have been struggling for now. On the other hand, Fast and Furious 8 has become a much anticipated movie and seems to vroom ahead of Vidya’s Begum Jaan.
Vidya Balan who plays the role of a brothel madam in Begum Jaan almost surrendered at the box office on Saturday. The film could not maintain its winning streak as expected from the makers. Instead, it registered a further drop in the collections at the box office.

As we have already reported previously that Vidya Balan has failed miserably to give a decent hit in the past few years, which looks quite evident by analyzing her recently released films- Hamari Adhuri Kahani and Kahaani 2. Both these films couldn’t create magic in people’s hearts.
