Out of all the releases that have hit the theatres this week, The Ghazi Attack seems to be gaining the maximum audience.
However, the film needs a major push in the coming days to get a big name in absolute numbers’ perspective as well. The Ghazi Attack released at a time when the theatres are also loaded with Oscar nominated films.
The film directed by Sankalp Reddy faces the challenge from Shoojit Sircar’s Running Shaadi and Naseeruddin Shah’s Irada, and even Subhash Kapoor’s Jolly LLB 2, which is running in its second week and is making a run towards Rs 100 crores. The only person who might gain the most out of the competition is Taapsee Pannu who is a part of both The Ghazi Attack and Running Shaadi.
