Kill Dil was made on a budget of about Rs 25 to 30 crore and have already recovered the cost on the opening weekend
NewZNew (Mumbai) : Director Shaad Ali’s Kill Dil, a thriller about guns and romance, managed to earn about Rs 20 crore in three days, says an expert.
Produced by Aditya Chopra, Kill Dil features Govinda, Ranveer Singh, Ali Zafar and Parineeti Chopra. “Kill Dil hit about 1,800 screens on November 14 and the budget was about Rs 25 to 30 crore. It has collected approximately Rs 20 crore in three days. We were expecting more from it. It hasn’t been appreciated by people,” Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines told Media.
Directed by Bharat Jain, horror movie 6-5=2, which released along with Kill Dil, couldn’t spook the moviegoers either. “It was a disaster. It earned approximately Rs 25 lakh,” he said. MS Sathyu’s 1970s film Garam Hawa, starring Balraj Sahni, Shaukat Azmi, Gita Siddharth and Farooq Shaikh, also re-released on Friday. While it was appreciated by the “niche audience”, it didn’t create fireworks at the box office.
“It earned between Rs 5 and Rs 10 lakh. It is only for niche audiences,” said Anil Thadani.
