Box Office: Sanam Re is average, Fitoor flops

February 15, 2016 17:48 IST

The hits and misses of the week.

Pulkit Samrat and Yami Gautam's latest outing Sanam Re has opened to average business at the box office.

Expectations were high from Abhishek Kapoor's much-awaited directorial venture Fitoor, starring Katrina Kaif and Aditya Kapoor, but the film neither impressed the critics nor did it pull in crowds to cinema halls.

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives us the latest box office verdict.
