Bollywood actresses Deepika Padukone and Bipasha Basu entered theatres with Finding Fanny and Creature 3D respectively, but neither could rock the box office.
If Deepika's English language quirky drama has appealed to niche audience, Bipasha's scary film does not have too many takers either, say experts.
Both films released on September 12. Finding Fanny has managed to collect approximately Rs 10 crore, while Creature 3D could manage to earn Rs 6.88 crore in two days. (Read review: Finding Fanny)
For Finding Fanny, Homi Adajania went behind the camera, while Vikram Bhatt helmed Creature 3D.
"Finding Fanny has earned close to Rs 10 crore. Masses won't go for movies like Finding Fanny. It is popular in big cities like Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore," Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines told IANS.
However, the film starring Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapur and Dimple Kapadia has been recommended by celebrities like Shekhar Kapur, Anupam Kher and Neha Dhupia.
The box office business of Creature 3D indicates that it has not succeeded in its endeavour of scaring people. (Read Review: Creature 3D)
Also starring Imran Abbas, Vikram's directorial has not received encouraging feedback.
"The genre and 3D aspects are interesting, but the subject is not strong," said Rajesh.
Film critic Anupama Chopra also tweeted: "This creature should have demanded a better script."
