TASHAN yields as much as FANAA?
A statement in the above mentioned interview, where Vijay Krishna Acharya (Victor) claimed that TASHAN (without multiplexes) yielded as much as FANAA in its opening week is creating a lot of controversy.
Well, here is the explanation of what the TASHAN director meant. The Aamir-Kajol starrer FANAA (without Gujarat) netted an impressive 21-22 crores in its opening week from India. On the other hand, TASHAN netted a below par 18.5 crores. However, due to it?s predominantly single screen release (where the distributor?s share are higher), its first week distributor's share was 11 crores (from India), almost the same as that of the multiplex heavy FANAA!
However, it is but natural that in the coming week's TASHAN's collections will be no match for the rock steady FANAA in its follow up weeks.
