Leena Yadav‘s ‘Parched’ starring Radhika Apte, Tannishtha Chatterjee and Surveen Chawla has released in theatres this Friday. Despite all the critical appreciations, the film failed to pull up at the box office and has collected a mere amount of Rs. 10 lakhs.
Produced by Ajay Devgn, ‘Parched’ is set on the backdrop of rural India and extensively deals with the regressive treatments towards women. Absence of big star cast and a commercial plot are probably the reasons for the film’s downfall at the box office.
Even with a good weekend collection, it is difficult for ‘Parched’ to overcome the loss it has already suffered.
