Producer Anand Pandit’s Hindi-language Kannada-language film Akshar has failed miserably at the box office. The film has managed to do a business of only 11.50 crores at the box office all over India. Considering this business, the trade says that Akshaab has joined the list of unsuccessful films on the very first day itself. The makers have spent 120 crores to make this film. To recover this cost, it is necessary that the film does a business of at least 150 crores at the box office, which seems unlikely considering its first day’s business.
There was a lot of enthusiasm in the audience about Kannada superstar Kiccha Sudeep and Upendra Rao’s film ‘Kajpur’. Ever since the trailer of the film was released, the name of KGF started resonating in the minds of the audience. The audience expected that this film would also be a film like KGF. Due to this thinking, the audience kept distance from it. The viewers who have come to see the film say that it is a poor copy of KGF. Due to this, Kiccha Sudeep, Upendra Rao, Shiv Rajkumar and Shriya Saran starrer director R Chandru’s film has not received a very good response from the audience on the first day. The film did a slow business on the first day.
As per the received reports, the film has not made any significant earnings from the South Cinema market on the first day. The film has collected a total of Rs 11 crore from the South Cinematic Box Office. This amount is negligible considering its cost. The film should have done business around 20 crores at least on the first day. Then, when this film has big stars of Kannada cinema like Kiccha Sudeep and Upendra Rao.
Complete failure at the Hindi box office
Seeing the success of KGF, Anand Pandit bought the rights to distribute it in Hindi language. He hoped that the audience would like this film like KGF, due to which the cinema halls would witness a huge footfall, but it did not happen. Even in the Hindi belt, the film has not been particularly successful in impressing the captured audience. According to koimoi.com, the film has collected a total of Rs 50 lakhs on its first day from Hindi theatres. Looking at these figures, it can be said that the film has completely failed at the box office.
The makers have reportedly spent around Rs 120 crore to make this multi-starrer period drama film by Kannada stars Kiccha Sudeep and Upendra. This is the reason why it is very important for the film to get a business of around Rs 150 crores to be a hit from the theatres. If the film picks up pace in the coming days, then it will be possible to achieve this figure.
