‘Shamitabh’ collects Rs 8.25 crore in two days


R Balki’s directed movie ‘Shamitabh’ starring Amitabh Bachchan, Dhanush and Akshara Haasan earned Rs 8.25 crore in two days. Opened with mixed review, the film failed to impress the audience. Released last Friday, ‘Shamitabh’ failed to score high. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about the opening weekend collections of ‘Shamitabh’:

#Shamitabh Fri 3.5 cr, Sat 4.75 cr. Total: ? 8.25 cr. India biz.

‘Shamitabh’ is Amitabh and Balki’s third collaboration after ‘Paa’ and ‘Cheeni Kum’. The film also marks the debut venture of Kamal Hassan’s younger daughter Akshara Haasan. ‘Shamitabh’ revolves around two individual or actors, who comes together for a film, but drifted apart when their ego clashes.

Big B plays a voice artist, who lip syncs for a mute actor, played by Dhanush.
