‘Thor: Ragnarok’ beats ‘Ittefaq’ at the box office on day one

Sidharth Malhotra, Sonakshi Sinha and Akshaye Khanna-starrer ‘Ittefaq’ released yesterday. The movie took a slow start at the box office, but then picked up in the evening. On day one, the movie has collected Rs 4 Crore which is decent.

Well, looking at the face value of the stars and the production houses it has been backed by, the collection is definitely low. But, we cannot ignore the fact that collecting an amount of Rs 4 Crore without any major promotions is surely a big deal.

‘Ittefaq’ has received mostly positive reviews and even the word of mouth is quite good, so the collection will surely show a growth today and tomorrow. However, on day one, ‘Ittefaq’ has failed to beat Hollywood movie ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ at the box office. Marvel banner’s ‘Thor Ragnarok’ has collected approx. Rs 7.75 Crore. ‘Thor Ragnarok’ hence becomes one of the top 10 highest grossing Hollywood films on day one in India. But, let’s see if on the second day, ‘Ittefaq’ will be able to beat ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ or not.

Talking about Ajay Devgn-starrer ‘Golmaal Again’ the movie has collected Rs 2 Crore on its third Friday taking the overall collections to Rs 184 Crore. If the film stays stable in upcoming days, then it will surely reach the 200 crore club.

On the other hand, ‘Secret Superstar’ has collected Rs 80-85 lakh on third Friday. The Zaira Wasim-starrer has collected around Rs 56 crore. It was a small budget flick and has surely turned out to be a hit at the box office.
