Ayushmann Khurrana’s latest action-thriller, An Action Hero, has been met with shockingly low numbers on its opening day. The movie, which was highly anticipated by fans of the actor, has failed to make an impact at the box office.
The movie, which was released on Friday, has earned only Rs. 2.25 crore on its opening day. This is a far cry from the expectations of the movie, which was expected to open to a much higher number.
The movie, which stars Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead role, is a story of a man who is forced to take on the role of an action hero in order to save his family. The movie also stars Anupam Kher, Manoj Bajpayee, and Divya Dutta in supporting roles.
The movie has been met with mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike. While some have praised the movie for its action sequences and performances, others have criticized it for its lack of originality and its slow pace.
The movie’s low opening day numbers can be attributed to a number of factors. Firstly, the movie was released in a limited number of theaters, which meant that it was not able to reach a wide audience. Secondly, the movie was released in the middle of a pandemic, which has caused a significant drop in footfalls in theaters. Thirdly, the movie was released in the same week as two other big releases, which meant that it had to compete for screens and audiences.
Despite the low opening day numbers, the movie still has a chance to make an impact at the box office. The movie has been released in a number of international markets, which could help it to make up for its poor performance in India. Additionally, the movie has been receiving positive word of mouth, which could help it to pick up in the coming days.
Overall, An Action Hero has failed to make an impact on its opening day. However, the movie still has a chance to make up for its poor performance if it can capitalize on its positive word of mouth and international release.
Ayushmann Khurrana’s latest box-office entry, An Action Hero, has observed a shocking slump in numbers during the very first day of its theatrical launch. According to the trade analysts, collections for the film were estimated to be as low as Rs 2-2.5 crore.
The film released on 11th February, among much media buzz and anticipation for the Bollywood veteran Ayushmann Khurrana’s reunion with his Badhaai Ho director Amit Ravindernath Sharma, but the response seemed to be underwhelming.
The reason of this low box-office collection could be attributed to the over-saturation of the theatrical market due to a plethora of blockbuster releases in the first two months of the year and the confusion caused by the changing release date of the film due to the farmer’s protest.
This puts a stop to Khurrana’s dream run at the box-office, with each of his last six films having made more than 100 crores – five of which had surpasssed the 200 crore mark. His last two releases – Bala and Dream Girl – were declared hits.
Trade analysts suggest that the low Day 1 number signals an alarming situation for An Action Hero and the risk of it becoming a box office bust is increasing with every passing day.
Given this situation, the T-Series banner needs to take a comprehensive approach to save the film from being dubbed as a flop at the box office. They are banking on the word-of-mouth, spurred by the positive reviews from film critics, to save their investments.
The success of An Action Hero could also have a major impact on Khurrana’s upcoming projects – Doctor G and Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, both of which are expected to hit the theatres this year.
