As the third installment of the popular franchise called Baaghi hit the screens yesterday, it banged the box office collection with a whopping figure getting the highest number this year. Before this, it was the Ajay Devgn and Saif Ali Khan starre film Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior, which seemed to topped the order with the collection of 15.20 Crores when released in Jan. Till then no other film took that huge opening except the action thriller called Baaghi 3.
As per reports, the Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor starrer managed to get a whopping 17.50 Crores on day one thus suppressing the historical drama film called Tanaji. Interestingly, the kind of trajectory, which Tanaji- The Unsung Warrior seemed to have enjoyed, seems a rare incident for such genre films in B Town. Perhaps the way it was promoted and supported by the fringe elements making the fascist divide wider thus helping it to gain such a big opening against the other film Chhapaak starring Deepika Padukone. However, with Baaghi 3 crossing its figure, it has now emerged out the top earning films in the B Town.
With getting the rare gleam at the warrior genre film, the fact remains obvious that it comes in the form of Baaghi 3 topping the list. However, it did not manage to beat its previous installment Baaghi 2, which collected around 25.2 Crores at the box office. It also did not compete well with the War film that collected around 53.35 Crore. Although the makers were expecting a much better figure than what it has earned yesterday. They expected the film to collect 23 to 25 crores at the box office but it did not work that way.
Nevertheless, the film is expected to enjoy the extended weekend with Holi coming next Tuesday and it will start on Monday itself. The footfall during the evening and the night shows along with the Holiday are expected to rise to give the film a good collection for sure. You never know the film would even enter the 100 crores club in the extended weekend. Well, let’s see how things would go but at the moment things are really rosy for the film.
