Heropanti 2, starring Tiger Shroff, had a great debut weekend at the box office, grossing between Rs 6.25 and Rs 6.50 crore, according to Box Office India.
The film's success can be linked to the holdover KGF Chapter 2, which continues to dominate ticket sales despite the fact that it was released a fortnight ago.Heropanti was estimated to gross roughly Rs 8-9 crore at the box office. Numbers are expected to jump on Eid as the movie promises to be a mass entertainer.
Yes, given Tiger Shroff's role as the film's leading man, Heropanti 2 should have done better. In fact, prior to the epidemic, the picture had a good chance of opening in the 12-15 crore area. However, today's circumstances are different, and audiences seem to be far more discerning about what they want to watch. Given the massy mood of the Sajid Nadiadwala picture, it has been given a chance, and now all that remains is to see where it goes in the coming days.
There are four days until the important Eid festival on Tuesday, and here is where Ahmed Khan's movie's hopes are pinned. It needs to keep gathering until then to keep the numbers from dropping, and by Sunday, it should be in the double digits. Whatever the picture earns on Sunday, it will earn at least as much on Eid, if not more. As a result, footfalls between today and tomorrow will be crucial in determining the trend.
