The bad performance of bollywood movies is continuing. Before Brahmastra, Laal Singh Chaddha and Shamshera suffered huge losses due to weak viewership and cancellation of shows.

Reacting on the report, Kashmir Files director Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri wrote on Twitter, “Problem is everything runs on fakeness in Bollywood. And nobody is answerable. No industry can survive which invests 0% in R&D and wastes 70-80% money on stars.”
