Governmental issues has at long last and permanently entered our film. This is demonstrated by the appallingly low film industry figures for Chhapaak, Meghna Gulzar’s tremendously discussed story of a corrosive assault survivor’s battle for equity.
The well-made, moving film has made a simple Rs 17 crores throughout the end of the week in the cinema world. This is a far less sum than what was visualized by profession savants.
“I expected a business of Rs 30-32 crores throughout the end of the week,” says a film industry expert who thinks Deepika Padukone’s visit to the JNU certainly demonstrated expensive for the film’s destiny.
“Tuesday is Makar Sankranti and there are as of now large discharges in the South in Tamil and Telugu. In the Hindi belt, the main decision this week is Tanhaji. Chhapaak is a far off second,” includes a multiplex master who accuses Deepika’s promoting group for the socially awkward act.
“She ought to have never given any consideration to her PR office who exhorted her to do this (the JNU visit). It was they who prompted her to pay a ‘flying visit’ to the ambushed grounds,” another source muses.
After Deepika’s visit to the fighting understudies in JNU, there was a fuss for Chhapaak to be boycotted. It appears the radicals have won once more.
