Daawat-e-Ishq, Khoobsurat fail to attract audiences, underperform at box office
Daawat-e-Ishq has minted more than Khoobsurat in the past four days, but they didn’t meet the expectations of the audience, says an expert.
New Delhi: “Daawat-e-Ishq” has minted more than “Khoobsurat" in the past four days, but they didn’t meet the expectations of the audience, says an expert.
Anil Kapoor and his daughter Rhea had joined hands with Walt Disney Studios to co-produce "Khoobsurat", a remake of the 1980 Rekha starrer "Khubsoorat".
With a strong fan following of the movie’s lead actor - Pakistani sensation Fawad Khan - many people were expected to catch it at a hall, but going by the movie’s earnings it seems like the movie buffs were not that excited about the film that also stars Sonam Kapoor.
“‘Khoobsurat’ is picking up because of word of mouth, but it’s not been much appreciated. Since, the movie brought together Fawad, Disney and Anil Kapoor, expectations were higher. It has earned only Rs 13.75 crore in four days,” Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines told IANS.
The film is directed by Shashanka Ghosh.
Habib Faisal’s directorial “Daawat-e-Ishq” also couldn’t pull in the audience to theatres much.
It minted Rs.15.63 crore in four days, said a statement.
“It has done better than ‘Khoobsurat’, but not great,” said Thadani.
The movie’s stars Aditya Roy Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra had also gone on a food yatra to promote the film.
