Director Ken Ghosh is unfazed by the lukewarm reception that CHANCE PE DANCE has got at the box office. While initial reports suggest that this Shahid Kapoor and Genelia D'Souza starrer could garner only 30% occupancy on it's opening day, the film maker believes that word of mouth will take the film past the safety mark.

One wonders though about the confidence level that Ken has in the film considering the fact that the reviews have ranged from below average to average. Though not many have ripped the film apart, there isn't any mind boggling appreciation either that could potentially make people walk into theaters in hordes.


"But then audience reaction is completely different from the kind of reviews that critics have come up with", defends Ken, "I am getting positive vibes from the target audience i.e. youth and they should help the film pull through."

Commenting on the poor opening of the film, Ken says, "It wasn't that bad since apparently many didn't step out of their houses due to solar eclipse. There were so many news reports floating around that it would be inauspicious to go out during this time period and hence morning and afternoon shows were affected. However, I am told that by late evening and night shows, the occupancy had jumped up to 85%. The Friday business would be in excess of 3 crores which is not bad given the circumstances. I am now eagerly awaiting to see how the rest of the weekend goes because that's primarily going to decide the overall run of the film."
