Sonakshi Sinha starrer Noor has failed to impress at the box office.
The film experienced a very low occupancy rate in the morning, a total of 10% so to say. According to the production, day one of the release, the movie only managed to do a business of INR 1.54 crore (approx). The film minted UNR 1.89 crore on Saturday and the total has amounted up to INR 3.43 crore.
But according to a leading trade website, Noor made about INR 1.25 crore at the ticket window and went on to collect INR 1.60 crore on Saturday. The total collection till now in INR 2.85 crore.
Now, we have to wait and watch to see how the movie fares on Sunday and the first-weekend collection of Noor can tell the real fate of the film at the box-office.
Noor is directed by debutant Sunhil Sippy and is based on the Pakistani novel Karachi! You’re Killing Me written by Saba Imtiaz. The film also stars Kanan Gill, Purab Kohli and Shibani Dandekar in pivotal roles.
Talking about her role as a journalist in the movie, Sonakshi had earlier said, “I wouldn’t be able to really understand the real struggles of being a journalist, but now I have a glimpse of it. I know that it’s a thankless job. I know how difficult it is to chase for a story and you have to please the people you work for and plus you have deadlines. Sometimes there are things that you don’t want to do at all but you have to do it as it’s your job. In those ways, I empathise.”
