One was the censor board and the other was the film’s release. People in the industry said that this film won’t earn beyond Rs 20 lakh on the first day of its release. And that the film will not last long in theatres. I was feeling bad because if this movie didn’t get good numbers then more films like these won’t be made. People would never even think of these kind of films,” Well, she sure is happy to learn about the good collection now, and should sure invest in more such movies.
