Its second consuctive time that Ali Zafar is under-performing at boxoffice. London Paris Newyork released in first Week of March in 2012, got decent screen space with good number of shows at multiplex but movie performed poorly as it collected mere 3.85cr approx over the Weekend.
Two years later Ali Zafar’s next venture Total Siyapaa also released in first Week of March. Movie again got thumbs up from distributors with good screen count and decent number of shows but this time collections were horrible as numbers came were just 3.6cr approx over the Opening Weekend. Two years difference in both releases had meant that this venture should garner atleast 6cr approx over the Weekend but Total Siyapaa’s number are just awful.
This time Ali Zafar’s outing was extremely promoted and was taunted to lead over new releases as pre-release buzz was there but figures pored in were poor. Movie even couldn’t match numbers of Shaadi Ke Side Effects which is running into its second Week. Total Siyapaa will find it tough to cross lifetime business of London Paris Newyork which had collected 6.75cr approx.
Both times distributors were confident about Ali Zafar’s films but output was extremely disappointing.
