Ever since Saaho hit the screens on August 30, critics and the general audience have been slamming the film for being not interesting. The film’s box office, however, proves otherwise for the first four days.
While the film is raked in the moolah in India, Saaho is heading for a disaster in the US. Poor planning by the distribution is one of the reasons for such a below-par performance in the US.
The film has garnered $2.2 million in the US. This number is not enough to enter into the safe zone as it has not collected even half the investment. With Canada’s collection, the film has collected $2.6 million.
According to the trade reports, the film is heading for a total disaster in the US. Saaho has managed to collect Rs 300 crore gross worldwide in just 5 days but this is not enough as the movie is sold for exuberant rates.
