Anil Kapoor-starrer Fanney Khan has failed to take off on the box office with just Rs 2.15 crore collection on opening day. The box office collection is in line with the reviews - with most of the ratings under three- that the movie had received ahead of its release on Friday. In its review, news agency IANS had given 2.5 ratings and said that the plot of the movie is ridiculous and stupid.
Film critics Taran Adarsh in a tweet said: "FanneyKhan has an extremely poor start... Fri Rs 2.15 cr India biz."
Fanney Khan, which has Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao in lead roles, is a one of its kind musical comedy revolving around a father who wishes to fulfil his daughter's dream of becoming a singer.
