Due to which it remained flat through out the opening day and minted the amount of 0.45 crore.
Leena Yadav’s directorial women-centric social drama Parched, has witnessed very less response than expected.

Shreyas Talpade and Manjari Fandis starrer satirical-drama Wah Taj has received mixed reviews from critics but witnessed very low occupancy in theaters.
