Though there wasn’t really any buzz around Amavas, it was still expected to open around Rs. 1 crore mark at least. Since the film belongs to the horror genre, there is a bare minimum guarantee that a film comes with. However that didn’t really turn out to be the case for the Sachiin Joshi-Nargis Fakhri starrer as it collected even lesser with just Rs. 75 lakhs* coming in.
Director Bhushan Patel’s last release Alone with Bipasha Basu in the lead had collected Rs. 4.5 crore on its opening day and now Amavas could well reach near that number in its lifetime.
On the other hand Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga has just token collections coming in. The film brought in mere Rs. 40 lakhs* on its second Friday and that has elevated its overall collections to Rs. 20.08 crore*. The film is a huge flop and would fold up under the Rs. 25 crore mark.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
