Needless to add that it will just be Anurag Kashyap's GANGS OF WASSYPUR II which will make a mark at the ticket window, but only till ETT arrives!

Checking out the new releases of last week, and predictably it was just Pooja Bhatt's Sunny Leone starrer, JISM 2, which saw a good performance, but it lasted only till the first day!

Having said that the film will fare very much like FERRARI KI SAWAARI, that is profitable for the makers but a loss making venture for the distributors.
