Produced by Hari Om Productions and Cape of Good Hope Productions, Khatta Meetha is Akshay Kumar"s lowest budget movie so far and has already ensured the producers a substantial profit, thanks to a new strategy that was adopted keeping in mind the economic meltdown.
The film shot at a humble budget has already grossed net collections of Rs.230 million (Rs.23 crore) in its opening weekend in India.
Reveals a trade analyst, “The film is doing extremely well in single screen theatres. It had a great opening weekend. Akshay Kumar works his charm again. A relatively low production cost helped the makers successfully distribute the film and thereby maximize the revenues."
Adds acclaimed trade analyst/critic Taran Adarsh, “The strategy of making a film in a moderate budget and selling it for reasonable prices ensures safety for not just the producer but also the distributors. Akshay and Ashtavinayak deserve kudos for keeping the industry"s well-being and health in mind by keeping the economics in check and also creating a tremendous buzz for the film."
