Shot In Odisha, Kapil Sharma Starrer ‘Zwigato’ Earns Only Rs 42 Lakhs On Day One

New Delhi: Quite surprisingly, Kapil Sharma’s small-screen popularity has not translated into that on the big screen, at least on the first day of the release of his film Zwigato. The film, which marks Nandita Das’ third directorial film, had a limited release, hitting only 409 screens, and has collected Rs 42 lakhs only. The film has recorded dull collections despite good reviews.

Trade expert Taran Adarsh tweeted, “Released at limited screens [409] and shows, #Zwigato puts up a dull score on Day 1… The word of mouth is positive, but it needs to convert into footfalls over the weekend… Fri ₹ 42 lacs. #India biz.”

Zwigato is Kapil’s first film in the lead role since his 2017 release Firangi. Based in Odisha, Zwigato revolves around Manas (played by Kapil Sharma) who trying to make ends meet as a food delivery man after he lost his job at a factory. Moving from Jharkhand to Odisha in the hopes of a better standard of living, Manas is the sole breadwinner of a family of five, which includes his wife Pratima (played by Shahana Goswami), their two children, and his ailing mother. The film focuses on the social-economic problems faced by the working class.

Zwigato is directed and written by Nandita Das, and produced by Applause Entertainment and Nandita Das Initiatives. Nandita made her directorial debut with Firaaq, which was released in 2008. She made a comeback after a decade-long break as a director with Manto in 2018.
