Filmmaker Kabir Khan has reacted to the poor box office response of cricket film ’83’.
In an interview cited in Mid-Day, Khan said, “We have accepted the fact that box-office will get affected badly in the pandemic. Theatres are closed in many areas, night shows are not happening…then eventually all these factors will affect the box-office performance. Right now, our focus is on counting love and blessings. There’s no point getting upset about it. The film is getting tremendous appreciation and it will continue to get appreciation even when it comes on television or OTT. Whoever has watched this film did not come disappointed and that’s what defines the real success of any film.”
In its first week of release, the film has struggled to hit the Rs. 70 crore mark.
