There is a general belief that a majority of the films that have released in the first week of the year, failed to work at the box-office. In fact it has been the carry over films of the previous December that continued to rule the roost, thereby harming the cause of the newbies.


Last year it was PK and before that DHOOM 3, DABANGG 2 etc. And this year too it is BAJIRAO MASTANI and DILWALE, which are the earning prepositions even as we have moved into the first week of 2016.

However, it seems that the Amitabh Bachchan-Farhan Akhtar starrer WAZIR may just break the January jinx.

There are many reasons for it. For the uninitiated, WAZIR is a film produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and written by Abhijeet Joshi, who is his trusted lieutenant. There is also Rajkumar Hirani involved with the production as well as in the creative process. It’s directed by Bejoy Nambiar, a young enthusiastic director who used to assist Mani Ratnam. Last but not the least it stars Amitabh Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar and Aditi Rao Hydari, in a kind of thriller that has powerful emotions as well. And we are not even talking about the ‘getting popular’ audio.

Well, here’s hoping for a successful start to January 2016 via WAZIR!
