With the given figures, it comes clean that despite all the criticism and condescension, Sunny Leone enjoys a set of audience. The film has in fact managed to do much better then big-budget films.
The Bobby Khan directed film was panned by the critics trounced big films like Shamitabh and Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! in day 1 collection.
According to the stats shown by BollywoodHungama.com, the Sunny Leone starrer earned a total of Rs.5.30 crore at the domestic box office on Day 1.
The numbers are greater when compared with that of Anushka Sharma’s ‘NH10’ (Rs.3.35 crore) and Amitabh Bachchan’s Shamitabh (Rs.3.5 crore). Dibakar Banerjee’s Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! too only managed to collect Rs.4.42 crore at the ticket window on the first day.
