Once again squashing all reports that the country is heading towards a slowdown, Ravi Shankar Prasad shared box office collection of House Full 4 to prove his point.
The Union Minister,while speaking to Faking News, lashed out a critics for fear mongering. “They are creating an atmosphere of uncertainty and fear in the country. I just saw the movie and I can’t tell you it is beyond terrible. Yet people are watching it. What does that say. It means there is no recession. We are not going through a slowdown as reported in sections of the media.,” said the Union Minister.
The movie released in theaters today and as expected got panned by viewer. However it did get a good opening, which trade analyst attribute to the festival weekend.
One viewer that our reporter spoke to said, “The movie is beyond ridiculous. Don’t know anything about recession but I am going into a depression after watching this drivel.”
Previously too Mr. Prasad had used movie earnings to show that ‘all is well’ with the economy. The statement led to backlash from many quarters and the Minister had to later take back his statement.
This time around it is not clear if he would do the same.
