Ajay Devgn’s new film Baadshaho, which released on Friday, has taken off on a positive note, raking in more than Rs 12 crore on its opening day.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Saturday: “#Baadshaho starts on a SOLID NOTE… Fri Rs 12.03 cr. India biz… Biz should only grow stronger on Sat and Sun.”
The Milan Luthria film is a heist drama, starring Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Vidyut Jammwal, Esha Gupta and Ileana D’Cruz. Set in the era of Emergency, it has been criticised for its old-fashioned approach to filmmaking.
This is the third time Milan and Ajay have worked together, having previously worked on Kachche Dhaage and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai.
Baadshaho was released across 2800 screens in India while Shubh Mangal got 1400 screens across the country.
The first day figures of Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar’s Shubh Mangal Saavdhan is not bad either given the number of screens allotted to it. The film, which released in close to 1300 screens, earns Rs 2.71 crore on its opening day. Taran Adarsh tweeted about the opening day numbers.
