Dibakar slams ‘huge film’ for ‘LSD 2’ failure


Dibakar Banerjee

is not the one to mince words and often speaks his mind. His latest release,

Love Sex Aur Dhokha 2

is facing a tough time at the

box office

. The film opened with just Rs 15 lakh and earned another Rs 12 lakh on Saturday.
Addressing the low score, the filmmaker indirectly blamed a ‘big budget’ movie for taking up


, resulting in the poor turnout for Love Sex Aur Dhokha 2.

Dibakar Banerjee told Indian Express, “Sometimes, a film has that transgressive quality which transgresses its immediate audience by some quirk of fate, destiny and real situation. Sometimes, through brute force. If you have the money. For example, what is happening right now. LSD 2 has released today, there is another film that has released today, and the ground reality is that about two weeks ago another huge film released, that unfortunately didn’t do well for itself.”
The filmmaker further added, “But it had booked many cinema theatres in advance. It had spent that money, so now those screens can’t be used, or one is still figuring out what to do with those screens, someone must be making furious calls in closed rooms in terms of adjusting monies, figuring out what the deal is. But those screens are booked, so there are only that many screens left for LSD and other films to come and find the best screens. So, it is also about power. Who is more powerful?”
