Shikara witnesses growth, but the 3-day total is low... Should’ve doubled its Day 1 number on Day 3...

Shikara Box Office: There was a fair weekend at the box office because 1.90 more crores came on Sunday. The film actually got off to a better start than expected and there was daily growth. Designed for a niche audience, this offbeat film appeared as one of those rare cases where a sort of collection arrived despite no buzz or hype.
So far, the film has collected 4.90 crores and few people would have expected it to be even the lifetime score. When there are three to four other big films in the running, it's remarkable that a small film like Shikara with no face value had a good opening weekend number. The film is directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra whose last bollywood director's release dates back to 2007. The film was Eklavya and it was a big budget star drama that had flopped commercially. Shikara is in a completely different area and it looks like it may end up making a profit for everyone involved.
