Welcome To New York is a Huge Disaster at the Box Office. Diljit Dosanjh – Sonakshi Sinha’s Welcome to New York has failed miserably at the box office with first weekend collections of 2.10 crore which is beyond horrible. The film needed the opening day to be higher than its weekend number.
While industry got a surprise success with Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, it also got its staple disaster with a film like Welcome To New York. The film has purely made in to cash in on Diljit Dosanjh’s popularity but even that couldn’t save this sinking ship. Films like these are what comes as setback for the industry. These kind of disasters come week in, week out at the box office and they drain lot of money from the industry owing to its failure.
Welcome To New York was promoted as a comedy but it was more a satirical film and that too it was satire on film industry which is beyond the reals of common audiences. Half of the audiences don’t get these kind of jokes because they don’t read the gossips and rumors which come daily in the print media.
The film is the first disaster of Diljit Dosanjh as far as his Bollywood career is concerned whereas this is another major disaster for Sonakshi Sinha in recent times after Noor. Sonakshi Sinha is going through a horribly low phase and she needs a big film to resurrect her career in Bollywood. Welcome to New York will not even be able to recover its publicity expense theatrically although if it has any deal with any streaming giant like Amazon or Netflix, then the loss will be less compared to now.
