This week Fugly starring Jimmy Shergill, Mohit Marwah, Vijendra Singh, Kiara Advani and Arfi Lamba in the lead roles will hit the theatres. Though there is no A-lister in the film, it is co-produced by Khiladi Kumar. But will brand Akshay Kumar ensure success at the BO? Read on to know
Akshay Kumar’s latest release Holiday: A Solider Is Never Off Duty co-starring Sonakshi Sinha has literally created hungama at the ticket windows. The film has already collected Rs 56.37 crore and is going steady at the box office. And now Akki’s production venture Fugly is all set to the screens come Friday. With this film, Twinkle Khanna’s hubby is launching four new faces in Bollywood – Mohit Marwah, Kiara Advani, Vijendra Singh and Arfi Lamba. While the trailer of Fugly garnered positive response, the film’s peppy music has only upped the curiosity level amongst the masses. But the question is – will the fresh cast, upbeat music and Akshay’s backing help Fugly get cash registers jingling?
Exhibitor-distributor Akshaye Rathi says, “Fugly certainly looks like a promising film in both the contexts – box office numbers and appreciation from the audience. The music of the film is commercial and popular and with the backing of Akshay Kumar, the film is sure to get an audience. Anil Thadani is distributing the film and he has done a fabulous job with selecting just the right properties and show timings that should optimize the business and help the film gain maximum traction at the ticket windows.”
Apart from Mohit Marwah-Kiara Advani starrer, four other films are also slated to release on June 13 – Chal Bhaag, Machhli Jal Ki Rani Hai, Unforgettable and 18.11 (A code of secrecy…). However, there is hardly any buzz around these films so Fugly does stand a good chance of racing ahead in the numbers game wethinks. But let’s wait for the Friday and not predict further coz in Bollywood anything is possible, right peeps?
