Mumbai: The Vidhu Vinod Chopra-directed ‘Shikara‘ received a good response over the weekend and collected Rs 4.95 crore.
Film critic and movie trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the figures on Twitter and wrote, “#Shikara witnesses growth, but the 3-day total is low… Should’ve doubled its Day 1 number on Day 3… Needs to stay strong on weekdays – in Day 1 range or thereabouts – to score a respectable Week 1 total… Fri 1.20 cr, Sat 1.85 cr, Sun 1.90 cr. Total: Rs 4.95 cr. #India biz.”
‘Shikara’ tells the story of the mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Kashmir Valley in 1990 and the bond between the leading actors at the worst of times. The film features 40,000 actual migrants from Jagati and other camps. It is also actual footage from the time of the mass exodus.
The flick is largely shot in the Kashmir Valley and is being promoted mainly as a journey of love between the lead couple.
Co-produced by Fox Star Studios, ‘Shikara’ released on February 7, 2020.
