This has been a particularly slow few months in terms of box office success. MS Dhoni — The Untold Story made around 130 crores at the box office, while Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher's Mirzya managed only 7 crores, reports Livemint.
With many sequels lined up in the next few weeks, like Rock On 2 and Kahaani 2, and also Gauri Shinde's Dear Zindagi, the last 2 months of 2016 should look up.
