Pagalpanti featuring John Abraham Ileana D’Cruz, Anil Kapoor, Kriti Kharbanda and Pulkit Samrat in lead roles, has received decent response at the box-office. The film collected Rs 6.50 crore on Saturday, taking its total collection to Rs 11.25 crore. Pagalpanti opened at Rs 5 crore on Friday.
Talking about making comedies, Anees recently told IANS, ''I want my films to make people laugh and be happy. Life is short. In your old age, when you look back, you will mostly remember the happy moments. Today, people are under a lot of stress, be it in career, source of income, taking care of kids’ education or weddings. There are so many reasons to worry that people are gradually forgetting to smile. I want to give people a few moments of laughter through my films. I was in a happy space of mind while writing the film. I believe, whenever a person is in a sad mood, my film should lift their spirit.''
Pagalpanti revolves around three men, who are considered as losers by the people around them. They plan to get rich along with their girlfriends by fooling two gangsters and robbing their money.
Meanwhile, the film is also facing stiff competition from the animated film ‘Frozen 2’, that also got a Hindi dubbed version with Priyanka Chopra and Parineeti Chopra voicing the lead characters. The film has collected Rs 7 crore on Saturday. The film opened at Rs 3.50 crore on day one.
