And the best part is that even though Riteish Deshmukh’s Banjo and Radhika Apte’s Parched have released, there is no stopping Amitabh Bachchan’s Pink. As Akshaye added to us, “Parched is a very niche film and it has had a very niche release too, it’s not meant for a wide audience. In it’s own way, it is doing fine with the little audience it is supposed to cater to. Banjo has had a good start in Maharashtra. It is one place where Ravi Jadhav has a good fan following and so does Riteish Deshmukh. It’s has opened to 25-30 per cent occupancies in Maharashtra. It has managed to get about 2000 screens. On the other hand, Pink is sustaining well. It has performed well throughout this week and this weekend, it will do very well again. Pink has been able to hold about 1000 screens this week.” ALSO READ – Amitabh’s Pink will continue to RULE the box office despite the release of Riteish’s Banjo and Radhika’s Parched – here’s why!
