Kabir Khan has tried his best to showcase the journey of India’s first-ever World Cup victory. However, the film failed to create magical numbers. 83 The Film has failed to leave an impression at the box office. The numbers are not up to the mark. The industry has not expected these numbers and the producers Deepika Padukone, Kabir, Vishnu Vardhan Induri, Sajid Nadiadwala, Reliance Entertainment, and 83 Film Ltd are shocked. 83 The Film collected approximately 47 crores in the first three days.

Now, according to the reports by Bollywood Hungama, a source close to the producers of ’83 said that the blame game will start soon. Why? Well, the site reported that the film’s underperformance at the box office may cost the film losses that run into crores.
Talking about it, a source stated, “The film looks and feels like a documentary on the 1983 World Cup. Some from the production team had pointed this out while the film was being made.”
This source close to the producer of 83 The Film added, “What was the need to shoot at the pricey Lords stadium in London when there are so many similarly vast cricket stadiums right here in India? But the naysayers were shut down by those from the film unit who were fully confident of getting the audience into theatres.”
The source also added that it will apparently lead to a large chunk of Ranveer Singh’s fee being cut off from his pending payments to counter some losses.
The audience and critics appreciated the film, however, the performance is not as expected. Kabir Khan’s last movie Tubelight was also made on a huge budget but failed at the box office. Have you watched the movie? How do you find it? Let us know in the comments below.
