Many in the industry had believed that Sunny Leone‘s ‘Ek Paheli Leela’ would be a poor performer compared to other big name releases at the Box Office. More then likely you assumed wrong given that ‘Ek Paheli Leela’ has opened to a collection greater than the recently released movies including Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Shamitabh’.
According to the stats shown by Bollywood Hungama, the Sunny Leone starrer earned a total of Rs 5.30 cr at the domestic box office. The numbers are greater when compared with that of Anushka Sharma’s ‘NH10′ which earned Rs 3.35 cr and Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Shamitabh’ that amassed Rs 3.5 cr. Last week’s release Dibakar Banerjee’s ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’ starring Sushant Singh Rajput only managed to rake in Rs 4.42 cr at the ticket window. The power of Sunny Leone, we say.
Directed by Bobby Khan, ‘Ek Paheli Leela’, apart from Sunny Leone, stars Jay Bhanushali, Rajneish Duggal and Jas Arora.
