It is a busy Friday today when we see too many films hitting the theatres, which certainly include Dear Maya. The film gives a comeback to an old diva of Tinsel Town called Manisha Koirala. This is her first film ever since she had become the victim of the menace called Cancer. However, with her meager buzz found in the media, the film seemed struggling a lot on the box office. The fact of the matter is one can find loads of the film hitting this Friday, which has made things bad to worse. So, the film performed as expected.
As per reports, the film opened with a low occupancy report, which remained very low of around 20%, however, in the evening show, it showcased some amount of escalation but was not wroth to make the film sustain over the box office. So collating all the data and reports, the first day box office collection for Dear Maya tolled to around 1.2 crores. As per the trade pundits and media experts, the film has potential of rising in the first weekend had it is able to garner a good word of mouth buzz, which is still doubtful.
What makes it even more difficult for the Hindi films to make an impression this week is the arrival of Hollywood flick Baywatch and even a fair franchise like Pirates of the Caribbean series. Still, it is a brand with some sort of recall value. Also, Priyanka Chopra has been promoting it extensively and though she is the not the central character here, her presence still promises better pull than what new Hindi releases could expect at the Box Office this weekend.
