Recently, amidst the hoopla around H4’s earnings, filmmaker Ronnie Screwvala criticised trade analyists for sharing inflated and inaccurate box office figures. Screwvala took to Twitter and asked two film trade analysts Komal Nahta and Taran Adarsh to give authentic box office numbers of films rather than inflated ones. He also clarified that the tweet was not directed to any movie.
“Isn’t it time everyone reports Box Office numbers accurately! @KomalNahta @taran_adarsh … accuracy of information builds credibility which the movie industry needs so badly… and not sure how long-to appease egos will Studios and all keep encouraging pumped up data on numbers,” Screwvala wrote.
