Peepli Live Garners high expectations albeit slow start
Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan’s awesome production Peepli Live has created a huge amount of unparalleled buzz in spite of being a non-commercial movie. It has started to get a diverse start in the ticket sales in terms of advance bookings both in metros and small centers.
The senior manager of Programming and Operations, Spice Cinemas Mr. Amit Awasthi said that they are expecting a big weekend sale thanks to the name of Aamir Khan.
A source from PVR cinemas said that the advance sales were just okay and nowhere near a movie in which Aamir Khan would star himself. There have been demands for several bulk bookings from many corporate offices; however on small-scale base it is yet to gain momentum.
Apart from the metro cities, the ticket booking is okay at several little centers like Allahabad, Indore, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, and Ludhiana.
It is director Anusha Rizvi’s debut film and it revolves around the satire and the media hoopla regarding a farmer’s suicide in a village.
