Taapsee Pannu's latest release Game Over got her rave reviews from critics. But it doesn't look like that's helping the audience head to the theatres to catch a show! Game Over, released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, had opened to a strictly average figure of Rs 75 lakhs. On Saturday, the collections escalated to Rs 1.75 cr. On Sunday, it had a slight drop and minted Rs 1.5 cr. After running for three days, Game Over now stands with Rs 4.5 cr in its kitty.
The film has reportedly gotten around 700 screens across the country. Nearly two weeks after its release, Salman Khan's Bharat is still faring well at the box office. That might have been a reason why Game Over didn't fare well. Tamannah Bhatia's Khamoshi, although quite a washout, is also running at the box office right now.

It was quite exhausting emotionally and playing such roles surely takes a toll on me," the actor earlier said in a statement, adding that the character indeed had a profound psychological impact on her.
"I think it is only natural. Usually, I shoot most of my films at one stretch and that is why for that time being, I become someone closer to my character...even in real life. That is why actors like us are little different, our approach towards reality is different from others. Since we are making the world believe that a character exists, which is actually fictional, our mental fabric is different," she added.Read More
