New Delhi: Despite getting mixed reviews from the critics, Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty starrer 'Cocktail' is minting huge money at the box office. Peppy music and good publicity is working for the film.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh lately posted on Twitter, "#Cocktail has superb weekend. #Cocktail is remarkable, faring exceptionally well at plexes. Had an extensive release at plexes, but limited screen count at s screens. #Cocktail collected approx Rs 36 cr nett in its opening weekend. Breakup:- Fri 11 cr, Sat 12 cr, Sun 13 cr. Extra-ordinary!"
‘Cocktail’ is scoring well in the international market as well. Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#Cocktail Australia: Fri A$ 45,811, Sat A$ 71,203. Total: A$ 117,014... New Zealand: Fri NZ$ 12,341, Sat NZ$ 13,168. Total: NZ$ 25,509. #Cocktail - USA: Fri $ 220,000."
Directed by Homi Adajania and written by Imtiaz Ali, ‘Cocktail’ is attracting a lot of youngsters. With most of the theaters running houseful, let’s see if ‘Cocktail’ also makes it to the Rs 100 crore club. During an interview lately Adajania said, "I don't feel the pressure of Rs 100 crore club. I don't know what Rs 100 crore club means. The pressure is there in sense that someone else's money is at stake, so you make sure that you make a good film. I don't mind if someone gives me Rs 100 crore (box office collection) but all I want to do is tell a simple story."
