Kartik Aaryan’s Shehzada opened to lukewarm response and made Rs 6 crore on its first day of release, it is much behind Kartik’s career-best opener, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2.
According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Shehzada’s first day collection stands at only ₹6 crore. Sharing the news, Taran tweeted, “#Shehzada disappoints on Day 1, despite buy-one-get-one-free offer… National chains ordinary, mass circuits dull… #MahaShivratri holiday on Day 2 may improve biz, but needs bigger jumps for a respectable weekend total… Fri ₹ 6 cr [+/-]. #India biz.”
For unversed, Shehzada is an official Hindi remake of the Telugu film Ala Vaikunthapurramloo which starred actor Allu Arjun in the lead role. It is co-produced by T-Series Films, Haarika & Hassine Creations, Geetha Arts and Brat Films. Rohit Dhawan directional stars Paresh Rawal, Ronit Roy, Sunny Hinduja and Manisha Koirala in peculiar roles.
