SHANGHAI has recovered its cost, says Dibakar
( Box Office India : Egg on your face!)
Director Dibakar Banerjee, Emraan Hashmi and Prosenjit Chatterjee visited PVR, Juhu to declare their film SHANGHAI a hit. While Dibakar mentions that the film has recovered its cost, Emraan says that SHANGHAI is his boldest film in context to its content.
Said Dibakar at the success meet, ”We spent Rs12 crore in the making and Rs 8 crore in the marketing of SHANGHAI. From Monday, we have been making profits. This was our aim and we have achieved it. It was never made to be a blockbuster though.”
Emraan says, ”In my career, SHANGHAI is the boldest film I’ve done! We’ve stepped out of the wicket and we’ve made such a film which breaks the convention! Some actors stay in the safe zone and make films for their loyal audiences, like I worked in JANNAT 2, but I really respect Dibakar for making a film like SHANGHAI.”
