Bombay Velvet Box Office Collection

Amid the last released Piku, which was just a simple story of a father and daughter duo, the noir set in 60s of Bombay seemed fading? Where Piku has been enjoying its steady pace at the box office, conversely the bad word of mouth turned Bombay Velvet sink. The second box day collection of the movie didn’t showed any signs of improvement and once again it gathered 5.25 crores, making two days of its overall collection to be 10.45 crores approx, on the domestic front.

The story of the film was that of a boy Johnny Balraj played by Ranbir Kapoor, who heads Bombay with the intention to become a big shot.

First Weekend Bombay Velvet Box Office Collection- 16 Crores!

Since the release of the film, a low pace on the ticket counters was noticed however, the makers of the film might not have expected Bombay velvet movie to just earn 16 crores on first weekend of its release. As much as we talk about the total production cost of the movie, it was said to be made with a whooping amount of around 120 crores. Well this means the makers have to bare a huge loss with this big-ticket movie.

Anurag Kashyup, who is specially know to show his excellence in his film, sadly fell short with his commercial attempt. Nonetheless, the director took it to twitter, raising the spirits of his cast and crew. He asserted that his work might haven’t worked out for many however he believe in his film and he wanted to make it and glade that he made it.

We will only say that Anurag no need to lose faith, as we know you are a maestro and few falls in the path of success cannot hinder your self-reliance.
