Sorry copy pasting a members post on Chapaak's BO on other thread.
So Chaapak is not a flop afterall feel sorry for all the haters having a mini party! ￼
"From what I heard it needs 40cr for 'hit' tag , 9 cr recovered from satellite rights, weekend looks 20cr. So 40-9-20 = 11 crore to be a 'hit', which is very much possible."
Lmfao which Einstein came up with this box office verdict theory?!
To be totally honest, 4.7 Crores opening is not at all bad for the genre & the clash taken in consideration. If it was not Deepika, a popular actress, playing the lead role, I doubt it would have even reached to a full crore. Maybe other popular actresses, like...maybe Alia or Kangna could have brought a crore or two more. But it definitely wouldn't have opened with 10+ crores numbers. Whoever believed / claimed it was to do so might have been too unaware of the real situation. A movie like this isn't for everyone. Majority of the moviegoers watch movie for fun, relaxation and entertainment. Chhapaak offers none of those. If you leave aside the delusion that Deepika (or any other popular actress) could have brought a 10+ crores opening or a 100+ crores lifetime, Chhapaak is doing pretty well.
I just wish Deepika hadn't meddled with politics & turn this into a political battle. The whole focus is on her now rather than the movie & its purpose. People are boycotting the movie, writing negative reviews without even watching because they hate Deepika. Laxmi & the other brave girls who contributed to this movie deserved better.
