During a recent interaction with Times of India, director Mahi Raghav opened up about the tremendous response to ‘Anando Brahma’ and said that he never expected it to do so well at the ticket window. He went on to add that the film has done ‘unprecedented’ business at the box office.
“I didn’t expect this kind of a response. We made the film on a budget of `2.9 crore and we broke even in three days. The collections in the US are tipped to cross the half million mark by the end of this week. These numbers are unprecedented for a horror-comedy,” he added.
Besides this, Mahi Raghav also revealed that fans loved ‘Anando Brahma’ so much that they laughed even during the spooky scenes.
“I’ve never been a fan of horror and felt the audience will remain silent during the scary episodes. Surprisingly they are all laughing. Either they are masking their fear with laughter or are in love with the inadequacies of the characters who come face to face with the ghost,” he added.
Well, we are happy for Mahi Raaghav and hope that his film continues doing well at the box office.
