One of the most awaited projects of the year, the Aks and Rang De Basanti director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's next, Delhi-6, has made it to the theatres last Friday, when it appeared that it won't because of the last minute arm twisting tactics of the multiplex owners.
The film starring the hot 'n' happening Abhishek Bachchan and Anil Kapoor's darling daughter Sonam Kapoor, had a mixed fortune on the opening day. While Bombay city and suburbs saw a below average opening, outside, the film was good at places and dull at most others.
As far as the numbers go, despite mixed reviews, Delhi-6 has netted 4.80 crores from across India on the opening day (8 crore gross). It is estimated that the UTV Motion Pictures venture has netted around 17-18 crores in its opening weekend from India, with Sunday showing some good pick up.
