‘Baahubali 2’ ate up business of ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’, says Ayushmann

Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra‘s ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ received a lukewarm response from the critics as well as at the box office. “I received mixed reactions at a personal level like from my family and friends. Some people loved the film and some did not like it at all,” the actor said, while talking about it.

While the film’s content that rather played with emotional quotient can be credited (or discredited) for this, Ayushmann as well cites another reason for the film not doing great.

“But I think somehow ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ ate up the business of the film. May be, it would have earned more money had ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ not been in theatres at that time,” he added.

‘Baahubali 2’, which hit the theatres on 28th April, ran for a long time and remains the highest grossing Indian film ever. An unusual frenzy came into existence, which completely showed up at box office as well.

On the professional front, Ayushmann will be next seen in ‘Bareilly ki Barfi’, trailer of which came out yesterday. Also starring Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao, the film releases on 18th August.
