All is not well with Kangana Ranaut’s films. Though she has performed exceptionally well, the numbers at the box office are not what anyone wants to see. Out of her last 9 released films, 8 are flops. Her latest release Dhaakad is a box-office disaster. The film received mixed reviews but could not bring people to the audience. The numbers are so bad that many theatres have discontinued the film from Monday itself. Only a handful of cinema halls are running the film Dhaakad.
Dhaakad Collected INR 4420 On Eighth Day
On the second Friday, Dhaakad collected a mere INR 4420. Only 20 people have watched the film all over India. It is disappointing that the audience has rejected the film. Dhaakad is billed as India’s first female spy thriller film. It is made on a massive budget of INR 100 crores. The lifetime total of the film will be around INR 3 crores.
Kangana Ranaut has played the role of ferocious agent Agni and her task is to eliminate an international arm and human trafficker Rudraveer played by Arjun Rampal. Despite brilliant work from Kangana Ranaut, Arjun Rampal, and Divya Dutta, the film became one of the biggest flops.

No OTT Buyers For Dhaakad
The makers are struggling to find the OTT buyers for Dhaakad. According to the sources, the makers have not sold the rights of the film prior to its release. They thought Dhaakad will get a good deal after its release. However, with the film becoming a disaster, it is hardly impossible for them to get a good deal from OTT and satellite rights. Also, another problem is it is an adult film. It will have to be re-certified to be shown on the television which itself is a lengthy process.
