Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee starrer Aiyaary has been making waves ever since the trailer was released by the makers. The much-awaited film finally hit the silver screens on February 16 after facing some delay.
The Neeraj Pandey directorial opened with a good response and collected Rs 3.36 crore on its opening day. Trade pundits were expecting the flick to rake in Rs 5-6 crore on the first day itself considering the star power and theme.
The crime thriller is slowly and steadily warming up at the box office and has improved its performance on the second day. The movie has minted Rs 4.04 crore on Saturday to take the total collection to Rs 7.40 crore.
Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the total collection of the film on Twitter.
#Aiyaary witnessed an upward trend on Sat, but the 2-day total is underwhelming... Biz is better in metros... Fri 3.36 cr, Sat 4.04 cr. Total: ₹ 7.40 cr. India biz.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) February 18, 2018
Aiyaary has performed quite well in the international markets. The movie which has managed to woo the foreign audience collected Rs 4.57 crore within the first two days.
The makers of Aiyaary had to change the release date several times and this might have affected the business of the film. The movie which is set against army backdrop also features Rakul Preet Singh, Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah in key roles.
The storyline of the film focuses on an army officer who turns rogue to unearth a major scam in the country involving corrupt bureaucrats and army officials.
