An Action Hero Box Office Report
An Action Hero has also seen some jump in business on Saturday, however, the final collections continue to stay at low levels. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#AnActionHero gets the much-needed boost/jump on Day 2, but the 2-day total remains extremely low, despite favourable word of mouth… Mass circuits are weak… Needs miraculous turnaround on Day 3… Fri 1.31 cr, Sat 2.16 cr. Total: ₹ 3.47 cr. #India biz."
"An Action hero is likely to show growth of around 50-60%. There is a definite change now compared to earlier days when cinemas started up post the pandemic. There is a larger audience venturing out to cinemas over the weekend and this can be seen by the box office of the last month or so. Yes there may not be huge jump on Sunday but that is done to the Saturday growth but the actual audience is bigger on Sunday."

We will always be grateful."
