New Delhi: Varun Dhawan-starrer “Main Tera Hero” has collected a whopping net amount of Rs.22.73 crore in its opening weekend.
“MainTeraHero Fri 6.60 cr, Sat 8.03 cr, Sun 8.10 cr. Total: Rs 22.73 cr nett. India biz...”, confirms trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh.
It is a mix of the commercial content, Varun's screen presence and the movie's promotions that have worked in favour of the entertainer, says an expert.
Tusshar, the brother of producer Ekta Kapoor was so happy with the figures that he took and twitter and wrote, “So, ‘Main Tera Hero' withstood the opposition of the two big T20 World Cup matches (with India playing) to safely collect a Rs.20 crore+ weekend, cheers,”
Released in approximately 2,500 screens, the movie was made under a budget of around Rs.50 crore.
“‘Main Tera Hero' is more commercial than ‘Jal', which also released on April 4. It's got the combination of Varun and David and since it is produced by Balaji Motion Pictures, it is well promoted,” IANS quoted Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines as saying,
“Jal” on the other hand, is directed by first-timer Girish Malik and stars Purab Kohli as the lead actor.
“It is for a select audience, so it earned less than Rs.50 lakh in three days,” said Thadani.
