Kuttey box office collection Day 2: Arjun Kapoor starrer fails to draw in masses; gets beaten by South film ‘Varisu’ | Hindi Movie News
According to boxofficeindia.com, the film saw minimal growth of just 20% which took its total collections to an estimated Rs 2.20 crore nett. ‘Kuttey’ had a slow start on Day 1, but reportedly gathered pace during its first evening at the box office. However, it will need to record higher growth at the box office to stay afloat through the working week.
The film not only recorded poor collections at the box office but it was also beaten by the south film ‘Varisu’. Although not backed by a popular south star, ‘Varisu’ (Hindi) managed to rake in an estimated Rs 1.50 crore nett on its second day.
The collections of ‘Kuttey’ in Gujarat / Saurastra were reportedly around 5-6 times less than that of the Hindi dubbed version of ‘Varisu’.
According to the report, ‘Varisu’ is a family drama, and hence drawing in bigger numbers than ‘Kuttey’.
‘Kuttey’ marks the directorial debut of Vishal Bhardwaj’s son Aasman Bhardwaj.
Speaking about the film earlier, Arjun said, “For me, Kuttey is a very special film. I got the opportunity to work with a talented filmmaker like Luv Ranjan, a remarkable debutant director like Aasman Bhardwaj, getting to know Vishal Bhardwaj as a producer, writer and music composer, Gulzar Saab who has penned the lyrics and some of the best actors of our country like Tabu, Konkona Sen Sharma, Naseer sir, Kumud ji, Shardul Bhardwaj and Radhika Madan.”
“As an actor, my journey in cinema has been of immense learning and growth. I feel I have finally found my groove in cinema and discovered what I truly want to do on screen. I have realised that I need to only do projects that bring me happiness and help me mature on screen. I have always wanted to be a part of credible films that allow me to also excel on screen as a performer. I wanted to collaborate with storytellers who believe in me and push me to do better,” he added.
‘Kuttey’ also stars Tabu, Radhika Madan, Konkona Sensharma, and Naseeruddin Shah
