Directed by Jay Bodas, the Gujarati film Fakt Mahilao Maate (2022) features veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan in a special cameo along with Yash Soni, Deeksha Joshi and Tarjanee Bhadla.

The film has been performing well at the box office in the Gujarat and Saurashtra territories. The feature had two premieres to kick off its release in both Ahmedabad and Mumbai.

Fakt Mahilao Maate, which released on 19 August, has reportedly had one of the widest theatrical releases across India for a regional film. According to the makers, it earned Rs4.66 crores nett on its first weekend.

Producer Anand Pandit shared earlier this week, “The collections of Fakt Mahilao Maate are progressively growing. The film collected Rs6.14 crore in the last six days. This success story proves that the audience is hungry for good cinema and a regional film can now enjoy a bumper opening comparable to any pan-Indian hit.”

He continued, “Fakt Mahilao Maate is a tribute to an era where going to the movies was a family tradition and a film was meant to be enjoyed together. Cinema was an event, a special treat and everybody laughed and cried and sang in unison. This film is a reminder of that special feeling of sharing a cinematic experience and making memories.”

“Many people have come to me and said that the film reminded them of their childhood and of moments spent with their parents in theatres. There could be no bigger compliment than that,” Pandit added.
