No luck for 'Jackpot', 'What The Fish' at box office

New Delhi, Dec 16 : Neither veteran actress Dimple Kapadia's "What The Fish" nor adult films star-turned-actress Sunny Leone-starrer "Jackpot" managed to pull in audiences to theatres over the last weekend. Both films failed to meet expectations, say experts.

Puneet Sahay of Spice Cinemas says both the films didn't do good business.

"We thought the films will at least have an occupancy of 50 percent, but even during weekend, the percentage didn't go beyond 15. 'Jackpot' had 12 percent occupancy and 'What The Fish' got only 10 percent," Sahay told IANS.

Co-produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures, Kumud Shahi Malik and K.R. Harish's "What The Fish" was made within Rs.7.5 crore approximately. Directed by Gurmmeet Singh, the quirky comedy was released in about 500 screens in India Dec 13.

"It didn't do great business. It earned around Rs.60 lakh. 'Jackpot' raked in about Rs.3 crore in three days," said Rajesh Thadani from Multimedia Combines.

"Jackpot", which also stars Naseeruddin Shah and Sachiin Joshi, was reportedly made between Rs.15 crore and Rs.20 crore. Directed by Kaizad Gustad and produced by Raina Sachiin Joshi, the film released in about 1,000 screens.
