So to release BIN LADEN was like cakewalk. It is a movie that has appeals to all generations, and has surpassed all our expectations with the sort of business and critically acclaim. It has notched up across the medium with glowing reviews and strong word of mouth from audience. Primarily catering not only to multiplex audience, response from single screens was also encouraging, its extraordinary box office performance reflects that themes and subjects which were considered 'niche' in the past have now completely broken into mainstream cinema. The excellent word of mouth the film has generated will ensure a longevity and successful run at box office window. Encouraged by the strong response, we are planning to widen the release by additional 40-50 prints in the second week."
