New Delhi: In case of Bollywod, it seems what the critics say about a film doesn’t matter much for the audiences. Be it Salman Khan’s ‘Bodyguard’, Akshay Kumar’s ‘Housefull 2’ and ‘Rowdy Rathore’ or Saif Ali Khan’s latest film ‘Cocktail’, all of them got below average reviews. However, all these films earned commercial success.
Released last Friday, ‘Cocktail’ has already earned nearly Rs 50 crore in India. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh lately tweeted, "#Cocktail [Week 1] Mon 5.75 cr, Tue 4.80 cr. Total: 46.05 cr nett." The film is doing well overseas as well. Taran tweeted, "#Cocktail *UK* Mon £ 43,214, Tue £ 44,054. Total: £ 383,584 ... *Australia* Mon A$ 20,685, Tue A$ 32,220. Total: A$ 233,272. #Cocktail *New Zealand* Mon NZ$ 4,556, Tue NZ$ 8,937. Total: NZ$ 50,565."
Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty play the lead roles in the film. Directed by Homi Adajania, story of the film has been written by Imtiaz Ali. Probably the chic look of the film and its peppy music is still attracting the audiences. Apart from Hollywood film ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, there is no big release lined up for this Friday. That means, ‘Cocktail’ has one more week to make money. Do you think ‘Cocktail’ has the chances of crossing Rs 100 crore mark?
