"Whenever you (a filmmaker) make a film with a newcomer, you don't need the initial response. In fact, the day you script the film, you already make up your mind that in the first two or three days of its release, the film will not do good," Ghai told reporters at an event.
"But if anything is good, it picks up," he added.
"Kaanchi" hit the theatres on April 25 and it has got a lukewarm response, both from the audience and critics. It minted Rs 1.25 crore in two days since its release.
However, Ghai is hopeful the film will pick up in the coming days."A little bit of patience is needed for a film made with a new cast, so just wait and watch, everything will be fine in a few days. I know people are enjoying it," the filmmaker said.
The film chronicles the story of an innocent rural beauty and her fight against power and features Kartik Tiwari, Mithun Chakraborty and Rishi Kapoor in key roles.
