Talented director Abhishek Kapoor is quite slow in wrapping up movies. After he scored massive hit with Rock On, he has taken huge gap after which he came up with Kai Po Che which ended as a blockbuster like Rock On. He then took his time to script his next film titled Fitoor.
He has taken huge time to wrap up the script which has been inspired by Charles Dicken’s Great Expectations. The movie impressed Aditya Roy Kapoor and Katrina Kaif after which they decided to be a part of it.
Fitoor took enough time to shoot and the movie has been shot exclusively in Kashmir. The film faced problems during the shoot and Rekha walked out of the project after the makers have shot some important sequences. It is then Tabu entered into the scene to play Begum, a crucial role in the film.
The movie’s shoot has been stalled many times due to extreme weather conditions. Abhishek Kapoor has not been happy with some romantic episodes and he wanted them to be shot again for which Katrina opposed saying that she is not ready.
Fitoor completed all the formalities and released all over on February 12th during the Valentine ’s Day weekend. Despite excessive promotions from Aditya Roy Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, the movie opened dull all over. Fitoor got 40% occupancy and the movie received a mixed response from the audience.
Fitoor collected Rs 3.61 crores at the domestic box-office. The movie made Rs 4.8 crores on Saturday and the total for 2 days across the domestic circles is Rs 8.41 crores. Siddarth Roy Kapoor produced the movie on UTV Motion Pictures banner.
