Cirkus starring Ranveer Singh, Varun Sharma, Pooja Hegde and Jacqueline Fernandez was released on December 23 and much to everyone’s dismay, Cirkus is not electrifying the box office as it was expected to be. The film once again collected around the same range as Day 1. The Rohit Shetty directorial venture earned Rs 6.40 crores on day 2 and this makes the grand total to Rs 12.65 crores.

The Saturday was Christmas Eve and it was expected that Cirkus will get a chance to score higher; however, the previous releases like Avatar – The Way Of Water and Drishyam 2 saw huge growth at the box office. Nevertheless, Sunday is Christmas and now it is expected that Cirkus might score double digits on day 3 at the box office. The comedy-drama sees 40% growth in the Mumbai circuit. Now, all eyes are on the opening weekend collections.

Here are Cirkus box office collections: 

Day 1 – Friday: Rs 6.25 crores

Day 2 – Saturday: Rs 6.40 crores 

Total: Rs 12.65 crores

Bollywood Bubble gave Cirkus 3 stars. A part of the review read, “Ranveer Singh and Rohit Shetty once again gave us a hilarious entertaining movie and well, their charms will do wonders. Cirkus gives a roller-coaster ride of emotions, laughter and a sense of oneness. Nevertheless, Sanjay Mishra, Siddarth Jadhav and Johnny Lever are show stoppers of this comedy-drama.”

Meanwhile, in an exclusive interview with Bollywood Hungama, the Gully Boy actor confessed that his relationship with the filmmaker has evolved beyond a director and actor. He also revealed that he agreed to do the film in a few seconds. “It took me like a second. I remember it was in the middle of the afternoon, middle of the lockdown, I got a call while I was on the treadmill. I answered the phone, and he asked, ‘Achha sun ek picture, karega kya’. And my response was, ‘Haan Boss karenge’. It took me 3 seconds.
