Kangana Ranaut's "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" box-office collection now stands at ₹55.25 crore. To add to its excellent run at the box office, the film has been enjoying a positive word-of-mouth review.
According to reports, the rom-com's impressive performance has led to Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma's "Bombay Velvet" being taken off select theatres in Mumbai in order to allot more screens to the Aanand L Rai directorial.
"Many theatres have been cancelling 'Bombay Velvet' shows due to its poor box-office collection while devoting more screens to TWMR and Piku. We are running just about one or two shows of 'Bombay Velvet' everyday," Mid Day quoted Manoj Desai of G7 Multiplex as saying.
Reportedly, a trade source said the Anurag Kashyap film had big stars and was made on a lavish budget, yet it hasn't performed since day one. Another interesting bit to note here is, Deepika Padukone's "Piku", which hit screens a week ahead, is still going good.
"Very few shows had been allotted to it, but due to want of audience, many have discontinued those too," trade analyst Amod Mehra told the popular daily.
Vishal Anand of Fun Cinemas further elaborated that the neo-noir thriller's box-office collection dipped consistently leaving them with little option. "There are a few people who want to watch the film, so we still have a few shows running at our theatre," he explained.
"Bombay Velvet" collection reportedly stands at ₹23.67 crore.
