‘Nanak Shah Fakir’ Box Office Report Shows Dull Response

Film Nanak Shah Fakir’s box office report shows a slow response worldwide with low gross figures for the first week coming from the U.S.A, Canada, and Australia.  However, the film is doing well given the number of screens in the UK despite protests causing some Cinemas to take down the film. 

At the current per screen average, the film isn’t expected to last past the second week due to the low demand.  The opening weekend has proved to be dull for the film due to a boycott by Sikh audiences in the overseas market.

In the major markets, the Sikh audience is a significant portion of the overall market for regional films.
