Strange as our headlines may sound but the first weekend of Aamir Khan Productions' PEEPLI [LIVE] has about the same numbers as the first week total of the Abhay-Sonam starrer AISHA. Yes, while the final numbers are still awaited, PEEPLI [LIVE] has netted around 15.50 crores during its opening weekend, which is about the same as the first week total of AISHA!
However, we are not really surprised because things were working out in favour of PEEPLI [LIVE] for a while now. Even in the US PEEPLI [LIVE] has done wonderfully grossing $350,000, an astonishing figure for a starless film and still counting.
Well, there is no doubt that that the immense goodwill that Aamir Khan now carries has a lot to do with PEEPLI [LIVE]'s superb start, as without his name the film may well have been another also ran!
