Mumbai: The Amitabh Bachchan-Farhan Akhtar starrer 'Wazir', began its journey on a mild note, despite having an advantage of no major releases over the past two weeks.
The first-day collection of the action-thriller imbibed Rs 5.25 crore nett, while the second day collected Rs 7.25 crore nett. The total of the two-days screening counts for only Rs 12.5 crores nett (Rs 125 million).
The collections might have got affected as the film is only parallel to a niche audience and isn't a family entertainer. Moreover, lack of promotional initiatives further failed to earn 'Wazir' the required attention.
Directed by Bejoy Nambiar, ‘Wazir’ stars Amitabh Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar, Aditi Rao Hydari, Neil Nitin Mukesh and John Abraham. It also brings Farhan Akhtar as an action hero for the very first time on silver screen.
