Badla, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu, is holding well at the box office despite various competitors comping its way. Badla is the remake of the Spanish film The Invisible Guest. This murder mystery is directed by Sujoy Ghosh and is produced by Red Chillies Entertainment.
According to Box Office India, "Badla had a good third weekend of 6.75 crore nett though the collections did not grow much over the weekend and Sunday was flat." The site went on to mention that ticket sales were affected by IPL. "It is being said that the start of IPL has affected collections over the weekend as growth is limited for all films that are being screened," said the trade website. "Badla still should be able to add 10 crore nett apprx in week three."
