While big-ticket releases have largely disappointed this year, 2017 was the year of small films hitting gold at the box office
While big-ticket releases have largely disappointed this year, 2017 was the year of small films hitting gold at the box office. Fukrey Returns is the latest of those gems. The Richa Chadha starrer that hit screens on December 8, has managed to garner worldwide collections of Rs 101.78 crore (Rs 93.02 crore gross coming in from the domestic market and Rs 8.76 crore gross from the overseas markets).
Chadha says she is "thrilled" that the second instalment of the Fukrey franchise has found so much love from the audience. "The entire team is overjoyed. I feel glad for my director [Mrighdeep Singh Lamba] because he deserves all the success."
Her co-star, Ali Fazal, adds, "Crossing the 100-crore mark is just a milestone for the soothsayers of Bollywood. I want to thank the entire team of Excel [the production house] and my brilliant producers Ritesh [Sidhwani] and Farhan sir [Akhtar] for always being there for us."
