Homi Adajania's English language Bollywood entertainer "Finding Fanny" registered an opening day collection of Rs.5.1 crore net across India. Its makers are confident the movie will do well over the weekend.
The quirky comedy, which released Friday, stars an eclectic cast including Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapur and Dimple Kapadia. It narrates a road journey undertaken by five oddballs.
"The makers believe the film is riding on tremendous word of mouth and rave reviews. They expect the film to grow exponentially over the weekend. Saturday morning trends show the film is growing in every theater across the country," said a source from the film's production team.
Produced by Dinesh Vijan's Maddock Films, "Finding Fanny" is being presented by Fox Star Studios.
Many, like trade analyst Komal Nahta, believe the film is meant "only for select audience". Nevertheless, audiences are finding it to be a cute and slice-of-life entertainer.
