The film is directed by Anu Menon.
Naseeruddin Shah had said in an interview while promoting Waiting... that people who whistle at a Salman Khan or a Shah Rukh Khan film need not come to watch this one!
Unfortunately for the National award winning actor, most of the audience are comprised of such people, as Waiting... gets off to a very shaky start. The film manages to collect only Rs 75 lakhs in two days, way lesser than Veerappan, Ram Gopal Varma's Bollywood comeback, that at least collected a little more than Rs 1 crore on the opening day. Waiting...meanwhile only collected Rs 27 lakhs on Day 1, and a slightly better figure of Rs 48 lakhs on Day 2, as per the tweet of prominent trade analyst, Taran Adarsh.
The film has been praised for its premise, as well as the performances of its lead actors, Naseeruddin Shah and Kalki Koechlin. So we do hope this small film picks up collection on word of mouth publicity.
The below is Taran Adarsh's tweet,
Waiting... is directed by Anu Menon, and also stars Suhasini Maniratnam and Arjun Mathur.
