Kamal Haasan’s directorial and starrer Vishwaroopam 2’s Hindi version is a disaster at the box office!
The film Vishwaroopam 2 starring Kamal Haasan was released on the last Friday. And the film has been doing well in the Southern region collecting as much as Rs 20 crore in three days. However, the film’s Hindi version has come out be a disaster, causing huge losses to the distributors.
Reliance Entertainment, who has distributed the film in the Hindi belt, has incurred losses worth Rs 25-30 crore.
Talking about the losses due to the film, trade analyst Girish Johar told Pinkvilla, “What I believe is Kamal Haasan is sure shot a big icon in Indian Cinema but I think the film had similar kind of fate in the first part as well. The audience in the second time around were also not that keen because last time also the film did quite an ordinary business in Hindi version. So probably, this kind of storytelling he is trying to bring, Hindi audiences are not that much inclined to. That’s one of the reasons. The reviews for the film are also quite mixed.”
The first instalment of the franchise had done well enough in the Hindi belt as well. But the reason for that was the controversy surrounding the film.
“Vishwaroopam in 2013 was no great shakes at the box office. But all the controversy helped generate some curiosity. This time there is nothing to bring audiences into theatres to see Vishwaroopam 2. The collections are extremely pitiable,” said Johar.
