Preity Zinta’s Ishkq In Paris is the biggest disaster of 2013, as the film collected Rs 42 lakhs on it’s opening day at the box office. The occupancy was so poor that several shows were reportedly cancelled. The film is unlikely to recover it’s marketing costs from it’s theatrical business.
The other two releases this weekend – Hum Hai Raahi Car Ke and Zindagi Zindagi – were worse, but not much was expected from these films.
The response to Hollywood release Fast and Furious 6 was excellent. The Justin Lin film collected Rs 7.75 crore including paid preview shows on Thursday.
