Actor Vidya Balan’s film Kahaani seems to have a struck a chord with the audiences in a big way. The gripping thriller has entered its third week and is still proving to be a crowd-puller. The film not only defies the new box office mantra of “focus on first three days’ box office collection”, but also proves that the actor has a long way to go.
The film earned Rs 43.05 crore since its release on March 9. Director Sujoy Ghosh made the film at a budget of Rs 8 crore and the collections show that it’s a bumper hit of the first quarter of the year. “Generally, most films register a 50% to 70% decline in the second week, but the decline in this case was around 25%, which is remarkable,” tweeted analyst Taran Adarsh.
Kahaani has also proved those wrong who said that Vidya ’s The Dirty Picture triumphed because it was full of skin show. Despite no skin show and no glamour, Kahaani has rocked the box office.
