It certainly seems like Anurag Kashyap's woes are far from over. In fact the director whose recent release Bombay Velvet opened on a poor note has had a disastrous weekend, with collections hitting rock bottom.
Dissed by almost every critic, the film opened with a disappointing Rs 5.20 crore on the ticket windows on Friday, and only rose marginally on Saturday to settle at Rs 5.80 crore. Even Sunday's collections did not bring any cheer to the team, and now trade pundits are calling it a dud.
Bombay Velvet is one of the lowest opening weekend grossers of Ranbir Kapoor, collecting a measly Rs. 16.10 cr.
Interestingly, ever since the promos of Bombay Velvet were out, there were unconfirmed reports that Kashyap had slipped into depression and was avoiding interviews. He tried to make amends on Sunday, when he posted a long message on Facebook, claiming that he still believes in the film, and the team that executed his dream.
