According to boxofficeindia.com, ‘Bachchhan Paandey’ collected approximately 11 crore nett on day two, with a drop of nearly 30% in business for mainly Mumbai and Gujarat regions. However, other cities maintained steady collections considering it debuted during the Holi holidays.
Despite a tough completion with filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri’s ‘The Kashmir Files’, ‘Bachchhan Paandey’ managed to cross Rs 12 crore nett on Friday, followed by Saturday’s collection, the film’s overall collection is currently over 23 crore nett.
The film recorded good growth on Friday as it hit over 2900-3000 screens in regions like Pune, Hyderabad and Bangalore with shows running houseful almost despite its concerning low advance booking.
Given the Box Office performance of Akshay Kumar’s last film ‘Sooryavanshi’ after the COVID-19 lockdown, the industry seems to have high hopes from ‘Bachchhan Paandey’ with its star-studded cast and appealing visuals packed with action sequences.
Helmed by Farhad Samji, ‘Bachchhan Paandey’ also stars Arshad Warsi and Jacqueline Fernandez in key roles besides Akki and Kriti taking the centre stage.
