Tiger Shroff starrer ‘Baaghi 2’ has stunned the nation with it’s massive opening of 25 crores on the very first day beating Padmaavat which held the mantle of highest opening day of 2018 so far by banking 19 crores. Padmaavat had paid premieres across the country on Thursday as well hence the collection including Thursday and Friday went up to 24 crores but Baaghi 2 is still the undisputed winner. Tiger’s last film ‘Munna Michael’ was basically a disaster in every which way but the trailer to Baaghi 2 was so grand that people showed up on the very first day to witness the action.
Tiger as garnered the maximum opening for any young generation star in Hindi cinema with this one and the bank has gone beyond any prediction whatsoever. Word of mouth around the film is very good hence the collections are bound to rise up on the weekend. To follow this trail, Baaghi 2 will become the highest grossing film of Tiger Shroff’s career so far and gross a hundred crores on the box office. It seems like producer Sajid Nadiadwala knew exactly what’s going to happen with the film hence announced the third part way before the release of this one.
Padman starring Akshay Kumar is the third highest opening grosser of 2018 so far as it earned 10.26 crores on the cash counter. Akshay is known for better openings than this but since the content was a taboo in India not many people showed up on the very first day. Recently released Ajay Devgn starrer ‘Raid’ is the fourth highest opener by registering 10.04 crores on the counter. Second highest grossing film of 2018 is ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ which opened to the minimal count of 6.42 crores but strong word of mouth took the film heavy and it managed to gather more than one hundred crores.
