Pizza box office report: Standing thanda at Rs 2.5 crore!

 

For a film that borrowed a concept, to produce a Hindi version of the Tamil super hit, by the same name, for Rs 1 crore, it’s not heartening news. While the original movie was made in that budget, the Hindi version is apparently struggling to recover the total amount pumped into this hatke movie.

The horror flick starring Akshay Oberoi, Dipannita Sharma, Arunoday Singh and Parvathy Omankuttan received mixed reactions from critics. Pizza, reports suggest, went on to net Rs 75.20 lac on the opening day. Hate Story 2-starring Surveen Chawla, Jai Bhanushali and Sushant Singh gave a tough competition to the horror flick. The revenge drama collected Rs 5,40 crore on the opening day and went on to clock Rs 17.30 crore as the weekend collection.

Pizza on the other hand bagged Rs 80 lac on Saturday and Rs 84 lac on Sunday. The net collection of the movie therefore touched Rs 2.5 crore mark!
