BOX OFFICE: ‘Ghanchakkar’ Gets Lazy At Ticket Windows


MUMBAI: ‘Ghanchakkar’, produced by UTV Motion Pictures and directed by Rajkumar Gupta (of ‘No One Killed Jessica’ ) faced a slow Day 1. The film, which stars Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan in leading roles, did not manage to win too many votes on its opening day.


Supported by a stellar cast, including Rajesh Sharma and Namit Das, ‘Ghanchakkar’ elicited an average response at the ticketing windows with approximately Rs 68.3 million (Rs 6.83 crore) net.

‘Ghanchakkar’ might pick up the pace over the weekend, but will have to contend with tough competition from the still-strong ‘Yeh Jawaani Hain Deewani’, last week’s surprise performer ‘Raanjhanaa’, and the upcoming much-anticipated ‘Lootera’, which releases next Friday.
