Talking about last week release, Luvshuda, not able to do much at the box office. The movie didn’t even earn three crores. On the other hand, the mega budget film ‘Fitoor,’ having big names with it, like Katrina Kaif and Aditya Roy Kapoor, was declared flop after two weeks of its release.
Taking about Delhi-NCR, the movie Fitoor was restricted to only two to three shows, daily. ‘Fitoor’ having 80 crore budget, didn’t earn more than 18 crores at the box office. However, it is not righteous to blame Katrina Kaif and Aditya Roy Kapoor, for the failure of the movie. If anyone is responsible for the failure of the film, it is the director Abhishek Kapoor.
The year 2016, has been the year of mostly flops, the list includes “Sanam Teri Kasam” with the box office collection of 9 crores. ‘Kya Kool Hai Hum’ – 30 crores. ‘Mastizaade’ – 39 crores. ‘Sala Khadoos’ – 14.75 crores. ‘Ghayal Once Again’ – 35 crore.
