Written and Directed by debutant Nitin Kakkar the movie released on June 6 to appreciation from critics and audiences alike
Lack of resources and complications related to filming in Pakistan kept first-time Indian director Nitin Kakkar away from shooting his National Award winning saga Filmistaan which uses Bollywood to bind India and Pakistan.
Nitin Kakkar's National Award winning film Filmistaan has managed to generate better business on the fourth day since its release than it did on its opening day.
Filmistaan that explores India-Pakistan relationship with comic elements didn't get an overwhelming opening, but on the second day the business doubled
Sharib Hashmi, who is being lauded by the film fraternity for his performance in Filmistaan, played Shah Rukh Khan's friend in Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
It's action all the way at the box office this weekend with Akshay Kumar's Holiday and Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow set for release. Both actors play military men in their movies.
After megastar Amitabh Bachchan praised Nitin Kakkar's Filmistaan, the movie's actors Sharib Hashmi and Inaamulhaq have now impressed filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
Debutant director Nitin Kakkar has received wide acclaim at international film festivals for Filmistaan that explores India-Pakistan relationships. Now megastar Amitabh Bachchan too has complimented him on his endeavours.
Salman Khan says small-budget films deserve fair visibility in theatres as big budget entertainers, as they too involve money and passion.
