Mausam, the directorial debut of India’s much feted actor Pankaj Kapur, has witnessed a good weekend at box office. The film, despite some scathing reviews by critics, managed to hold on and kept pulling in the crowds.
Though the response hasn’t been as good as it was expected, it is not bad either. The bums on seats haven’t been on the wane and that’s heartening news for the distributors. Starring Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor in the lead roles, Mausam rounded off its first weekend at theatres with a collection of approximately Rs. 21 crores nett. The movie reportedly raked in around 8 crore on its opening day; its collection dipped on Saturday, but picked up again on Sunday.
Shahid Kapoor can take heart from the fact that Mausam is his biggest opener at Box Office yet, even better than Kaminey or Badmaash Company.
