Matru ki Bijlee ka Mandola Hit or Flop? Hit it might be at the box office but what has already set the ball rolling along with tongues is the name of the film which is a tongue twister of the sorts. Film stars Anushka Sharma, Imran Khan and Pankaj Kapoor. Anushka is playing Bijlee, free-spirit daughter of Mandola played by Pankaj Kapoor and Matru is her love interest played by Imran Khan.Arya Babbar and Shabana Azmi are also featuring in supporting roles.
Coming to the commercial aspect of it, film has been produced by Fox Star Studios which means besides Vishal Bhardwaj who is the producer-director of the film; film has been managed in corporate style. Lately, Hollywood studio have shown greater interest in Indian films and producing them is a fruitful opportunity they have got to tap into the large Indian market. Film has been made at a low budget of Rs.40 Crores so reaping back should not be tough as the film is one of the first major films to release in the New Year. On a related note, Vishal Bhardwaj’s last film ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’ had tanked at the Box Office.
