Don’t know about financial experts, but our Union minister sir Ravi Shankar Prasad sure as hell thinks country’s economy is rainbows and butterflies just because three movies in India collectively earned over 120 crores on 2nd October.

He presented this bizarre analogy at an event in Mumbai. “I was also told that on October 2, which is observed as one of the national holidays, three Hindi movies garnered Rs. 120 crore business on that day. Unless the economy is sound in the country how can only three movies collected so much business in a single day?” he was quoted in a report by NDTV.

As you might expect, his economics 101 hasn’t landed too well on the internet. Here’s what people think about his statement.

However, just a few hours earlier, he released a press statement in which he withdrew his statement saying media has taken in out of context.

Okay then.
