Batti Gul Meter Chalu leaked on torrent: Box Office collections may decline
New Delhi : Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor's movie Batti Gul Meter Chalu has been released on 20 September 2018. The comedy drama is facing hard time to meet the box office expectations. The possible reason might be the online leak of full movie in the first day of its release. Many sites in the Internet have come up with pirated version of the movie. While some video are low quality a few sites are offering HD quality print.
Directed by Shree Narayan Singh and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Batti Gul Meter Chalu had a slow start at the box office, and now with the movie made illegally available for users to watch online or download for free, it could affect the film’s collection even more in the coming days.
For past few years, the online leak of movies immediately after the release and sometime before release is bringing nightmare for filmmakers. The production house suffers from huge financial loss.
Critics thought that Batti Gul Meter Chalu‘s box office collection would pick up over the weekend but unfortunately, it failed. Also, the historic cricket match between India vs Pakistan on Sunday affected the movie's collection.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about the progress the movie made over the weekend, quoting the total amount it collected as Rs 23.26 crore.
He took to micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, “#BattiGulMeterChalu did grow over the weekend, but the jump in biz wasn’t substantial enough… Biz on Day 3 was affected due to the crucial cricket match, but the trending is dull… Weekdays are crucial… Fri 6.76 cr, Sat 7.96 cr, Sun 8.54 cr. Total: ₹ 23.26 cr. India biz.”
According to Box Office India, Batti Gul Meter Chalu was below the mark in its first weekend, and is very much dependent on a strong hold on Monday.
The story of Batti Gul Meter Chalu revolves around inflated electricity bills in rural India. In terms of movie review, it received mixed response from cinema lovers.
