Though he has written off the debacle, Tusshar Kapoor attributes the non-performance of Aggar at the box office to poor publicity.
"Normally, the poor publicity of a film is attributed to the stars who don't give dates for the publicity. But I was more than willing to give out dates for the publicity. Those dates went perpetually to waste. Though I liked the script and Anant Mahadevanji has done justice to it, the promotion wasn't aggressive enough. And for no fault of mine. I did the promotion of Aggar on my own as much as possible. But the release came during the holy month of Ramzan and Ganesh Chaturthi and the India-Pakistan match. No one had time for Aggar."
But Tusshar is upbeat. "I've Priyadarshan's Dhol coming up this week. And that should compensate for the debacle of Aggar. I had a ball working with Priyan and my co-stars Kunal Khemu, Sharman Joshi and Rajpal Yadav. I can't say I'm tired of doing these boys' comedies. That's what is working at the box office."
