Demonetisation of high currency notes and the resultant cash crunch is likely to hit the box office collection of the just-released Force 2, its producer Vipul Shah has said.

The ban on Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, announced on November 8, has led to severe shortage of valid notes among people, who are queueing up before banks and ATMs in large numbers to exchange the now defunct bills for new ones.

“There might be some loss. It’s been 10 days… and people are facing this problem and I think Indians want to come out of this (problem) and get themselves entertained. We hope to contribute towards reducing the stress of people
through our film,” Vipul told reporters here last night at a promotional event of Force 2.

“Even Bookmyshow and Paytm (e-wallet) are looking to help people,” he said. Force 2 stars John Abraham and Sonakshi Sinha supported the demonetisation drive, saying it is a great step forward to prevent corruption and curb black money. Force 2 is an important film for India. In clean (white) India, this is the first legitimate film. It’s a game-changing film. This is the first film that is releasing after the demonetisation move (announced on Nov 8). People want some relief and so they can come and watch Force 2,” John said.
