Chances are that you were among the many who believed that Sunny Leone‘s ‘Ek Paheli Leela’ would bomb at the Box Office. And chances (yet again) are that you have mighty failed in your assessment of the preferences of the Indian audiences.
Reason being that ‘Ek Paheli Leela’ has opened to a collection greater than the recently released movies including Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Shamitabh’.
According to the stats shown by BollywoodHungama.com, the Sunny Leone starrer earned a total of Rs 5.30 cr at the domestic box office. The numbers are greater when compared with that of Anushka Sharma’s ‘NH10’ which earned Rs 3.35 cr and Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Shamitabh’ that amassed Rs 3.5 cr. Last week’s release Dibakar Banerjee’s ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’ starring Sushant Singh Rajput only managed to rake in Rs 4.42 cr at the ticket window. The power of Sunny Leone, we say.
Directed by Bobby Khan, ‘Ek Paheli Leela’, apart from Sunny Leone, stars Jay Bhanushali, Rajneish Duggal and Jas Arora.
