Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Athiya Shetty starrer Motichoor Chaknachoor has fared poorly at the box office on its first day. The film opened to disappointing numbers on Friday while Hollywood flicks Ford And Ferrari and Charlies Angels registered better figures.
According to a report on Box Office India, the film managed to collect only Rs 30 lakh on its opening day. On the other hand, the Hollywood release Ford And Ferrari collected around 75-80 lakh. The other Hollywood release Charlies Angels was poor with around 50-55 lakh on day one but still better than Motichoor Chaknachoor.
The film is a romantic comedy therefore should attract the audience and has even got decent reviews. But the primary reason for poor business seems to be the lack of awareness. The audience does not know that such a film exists and whoever knows is not aware that it has already released on 15th November.
Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Bala remained steady and collected Rs 3.76 crore on Friday putting its total collection of eight days at the domestic box office at Rs 76 crore.
But it was Marjaavaan that dominated the box office. The film that stars Sidharth Malhotra, Riteish Deshmukh, Tara Sutaria, and Rakul Preet Singh opened to good numbers and collected around Rs 7 crore on its first day.
Coming back to Motichoor Chaknachoor, the film follows the story of a 36 years old man who tries to find a wife and a young girl who wants to get married to a man who works abroad so that she can also live in a foreign country.
The film stars Nawazuddin Siqqiui and Athiya Shetty in lead roles while Vibha Chibber, Navni Parihar, Vivek Mishra, Karuna Pandey, Sanjeev Vats, Abhishek Rawat, Sapna Sand and Usha Nagar will be seen in supporting roles.
Directed by Debamitra Biswal and produced by Rajiv and Kiran Bhatia, film released on 15 November.
