New Delhi: The star kid Tiger Shroff has done the impossible at the box office. His debut flick ‘Heropanti' has beaten the superstar Rajinikanth's highly anticipated ‘Kochadaiiyaan'.
The film was mostly criticized by the film critics but its collection is the latest example that a masala entertainer is no more in awe of good reviews. ‘Heropanti' over the weekend has collected Rs 21.33 cr nett in India.
“#Heropanti *revised* Fri 6.63 cr, Sat 6.42 cr, Sun 8.28 cr. Total: Rs 21.33 nett. India biz. Huge growth on Sunday. EXCELLENT!”, confirms trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh.
At overseas too it attracted the audience and opened good.“#Heropanti has a super start in UAE+GCC. Thu AED 261,000, Fri AED 420,000. Total: AED 681,000 [Rs 1.08 cr]”, tweets Adarsh
The Rajinikanth starrer ‘Kochadaiiyaan' opened with huge buzz but nothing extraordinary came at fore at box office except in the South circuits, obviously Rajinikanth fan following being a major reason. In North circuits and at international market the flick isn't performing well. By weekend the Soundarya directorial has made Rs 30 cr gross in India which makes it nett collection less than Rs 20 cr.
"#Kochadaiiyaan weekend breakup [gross figures]: India Rs 30 cr. Overseas Rs 12 cr", confirms Adarsh.
Taran Adarsh states further that “BO performance of the Hindi version of KOCHADAIIYAAN is below par in the Hindi belt. As highlighted in our 'BO Update' on Friday, the postponement of its release date affected its business to an extent. Also, animation films produced in India haven't found whole-hearted mandate from the audience thus far”.
Lastly, the Hollywood release ‘X-Men Days Of Future Past' has a found an acceptance by Indian audience and by weekend it made Rs 16.60 cr in India.
“#XMen Days Of Future Past Thu previews 60 lacs, Fri 4.50 cr, Sat 5.40 cr, Sun 6.10 cr. Total: Rs 16.60 cr nett. Steady jump over the wknd”, writes Adarsh.
