1st Day Box Office Collections of Masaan
This week, we have two mid budget films releasing both covering some day to day based issues very much witnessed in our modern society. This include Masaan starring Richa Chadda and other novices in the B Town. The film has already being recognized in the international Diaspora by winning two prestigious awards at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015. Despite all this feat, the film belongs to niche audience considering the subject of the film- untouchability and the powerful exploiting the poor in the streets of Banaras the so called sacred city of India.
On the other side, the film has one of the biggest competition, which comes in the form of Bajrangi Bhaijaan starring Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. The film has already secured 187 crores after the passage of one week hence it is no surprise to still move ahead with similar trend. Hence to expect much from the film like Masaan would be rather weird. Looking at the trend the low occupancy for Masaan has been witnessed right from the morning to the evening shows.
However, the typical audience of Anurag Kashyap (as he is also one of the producers of the film) were seen catching up the movie. As per reports, the first day box office collection for Masaan tolled to around 70 lakhs. The trade pundits too not expect much from the collection in its first weekend as it will remain constant not just the weekend but also in the weekdays.
