‘Black Panther’ overpowers ‘Aiyaary’ in the first weekend, as the latter disappoints
The movie did a business of Rs 4.25 crore nett on Sunday which is exactly the same as its Saturday business and the three day total business is Rs 11.75 crore nett which is a disappointment. Even, Sidharth’s earlier outing ‘Ittefaq’ which was made at half the budget of this movie had done a better business of Rs 14.82 crore nett in its first weekend.
The American superhero flick ‘Black Panther’ which released on the same day as ‘Aiyaary’ has overpowered the latter and has done a decent business of Rs 18.75 crore nett over the weekend. Even though the numbers aren’t great, they are much better than ‘Aiyaary’.
Coming back to the crime thriller, the start hasn’t been a good one and considering the foreign locales and the star cast, the budget of the movie is surely above Rs 30 crore nett. So, if you take the budget into consideration, the collections are quite low and the movie needs a huge boost in the weekdays to earn any profit whatsoever.
