Baadshaho and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan are performing incredibly at the Indian box office. Despite being involved in a clash, both the films took full advantage of the Bakri Eid holiday to show good growth on their first Saturday. At one hand, Baadshaho collected 15.60 crores to take its two days total to 27.63 crores whereas Shubh Mangal Saavdhan showed an even more exceptional growth to earn 5.56 crores to take its total to 8.27 crores.
The Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi starrer initially earned 12.03 crores on its first day. However, the film bettered its numbers by collecting over 15 crores on its Day 2. The first weekend total of the movie is likely going to be around 42-43 crores which is a great sign for the movie. The Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar starrer almost doubled its collections compared to its first day which clearly states the movie is carrying good word of mouth. It will earn around 12 crores in its first weekend. (ALSO READ: Top 10 Highest Opening Weekend Grossers 2017)
Both the films need to maintain a good hold in the upcoming days to get the hit tag at the Indian box office. Baadshaho will look on to grab a good hold during the weekdays as well to ultimately cross the 100 crore mark. Shubh Mangal Saavdhan is made on a modest budget. Thus, recovering its budget will not be a tough task for the film. All thanks to Aanand L. Rai and Krishika Sulla that have used a smart marketing strategy to promote the film.
