Kahaani 2 box office collection day 3: Vidya Balan film shows growth
The filmmaker believes if people would want to watch the movie they will definitely go to the theatres despite currency crisis.
In a much anticipated sequel to Kahaani, Vidya Balan starrer- Kahaani 2 released on December 2 and has been performing well.
According to the reports, Kahaani 2 has released and opened to Rs. 4.25 crore, the weekend is Rs. 16.75 crore. This has been seen better than Kahaani's performance as the film had opened to Rs 3 crore in 2012 and the weekend collection soared to Rs 15 crore.
Earlier in 2012, first week collection for Kahaani was Rs 22.75 crore, and the collection of Kahaani 2 is awaited to break the previous record. The word of mouth power had enormously helped Kahaani, and that is what is being expected from Kahaani 2.
However, it would be too early to consider demonetisation effect on the movie, but anyway Director Sujoy Ghosh is sure that demonetisation won't affect Kahaani 2. The filmmaker believes if people would want to watch the movie they will definitely go to the theatres despite currency crisis. “I don’t think demonetisation will affect my film. It’s all about priority so if people would really want to watch it they will definitely go to theatres. It doesn’t matter if there is a currency problem in the country,” Ghosh told media.
He went on to appreciated Vidya Balan, and said, “I don’t think one can question her talent. Even her performance in the so-called bad films was better than of lot of people I know. Sometimes we all go wrong in choosing scripts. Even I went wrong with Home Delivery, Aladdin. I think she chose to do Kahaani with the same instinct as other films. Nobody knows whether a film will work or not.”
However, reports have said that first Weekend box office collection in India of Kahaani 2 are likely to finish 21st or 22nd highest of 2016 in the same range as Flying Jatt, Ghayal Once again and Akira.
It is to be noted that first Weekend of Kahaani 2 is much lower than that of other female theme movies of 2016 like Neerja and Pink.
