Vikrant Rona box office: Kiccha Sudeep starrer performs better than Vikram, Beast on day 1 in Hindi circuits
Actor Kiccha Sudeep starrer Vikrant Rona which was released on July 28 has opened well at the box office. So much so that, the film performed better than South mega movies like Kamal Haasan starrer Vikram and Thalapathy Vijay starrer Beast in the Hindi markets. As per the latest update, the suspense thriller has managed to collect Rs. 1 cr nett on its first day in the Hindi language.
Though the numbers are too appealing, the opening is better than south imports like Vikram, Valimai, Beast and 777 Charlie, as reported by Pinkvilla. Since it was a mid-week release, it is expected that the film might bring in good numbers at the box office. However, Kiccha Sudeep starrer will also face heavy competition from Ek Villain Returns starring Arjun Kapoor, Tara Sutaria, Disha Patani and John Abraham. The film was released today with the movie playing 3000 screens. Now, it is to be seen how both the films perform.
Meanwhile, Bollywood Bubble gave 2.5 stars to Vikrant Rona. A part of the review read, “Vikrant Rona starring Kiccha Sudeep tries to showcase an intense suspense thriller but has a low impact. Though the twist was quite engaging, it was the execution that seemed like a dud to me. Before the intermission, too many things were happening, instead of coming to the point. It seemed a little farfetched until we come to the second half of the film.”
Helmed by Anup Bhandari, Vikrant Rona also stars Nirup Bhandari, Neetha Ashok and Jacqueline Fernandez. The film is produced by Salman Khan’s production house. Speaking about his equation with Salman Khan, Kiccha Sudeepa said, “He is very real,” to Bollywood Bubble.

Sudeep added, “Salman Sir ka woh ek position hai zindagi mein, woh ek bade bhai ka hai. So, woh friend, friend ke list mein nahi aate. Friend kya hota hai, kuch bhi bolo, udhar (with Salman) thoda reserve hote hai hum. Salman Sir ke saamne toh hum, not that woh aise hai. Lekin, humhe aise freedom ke saath rehna nahi aata unke saamne. (Salman sir has the position of a big brother in my life. So, he does not come in the list of my friend. A friend is that person with whom one can talk freely, with Salman sir I get a bit reserved. In front of Salman sir, although he is not that person, I cannot act with freedom when he’s around).”
