  • Tiger Shroff

Takes a fantabulous. Emerges the biggest opener of 2018 (so far), surpassing Previews + one business of "Padmaavat'..."

"Baaghi 2", which got mixed reviews from the critics, has raked in Rs 25.10 crore on its opening day. The Weekend shows were marked with even better attendance.

"Baaghi" however is off to a great start as it has already made 1/4 of a century, collecting 25 crores in the first day itself.

Already facing very little competition from "Raid" and "Hichki", the "Baaghi 2" team has nothing to worry about since they will face nearly no competition from Irrfan Khan's next release "Blackmail" and the movie is expected to sustain for a long time, crossing the 100 crore mark within its first week.

While Baaghi 2 accolades are being showered on Tiger Shroff, a person who desrves them as much is Director Ahmed Khan. In UAE-GCC, it has opened HIGHER than Fox Star Studios' major releases Jolly LLB 2 [65% higher] and Judwaa 2 [25% higher]. #Baaghi2 UAE + GCC Thu $ 325k [₹ 2.11 cr]. The Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh-starrer collected Rs 18.21 crore on its first day. But what with all the action and drama, Tiger Shroff's film will find it quite easy to sweep the box office.

Secondly, it was a holiday (Good Friday) and hence Baaghi 2 pulled a good number of audience.

Owning to the Good Friday release, Baaghi has garnered vast love and appreciation from followed by a strong word of mouth.

Hence, viewers were eagerly waiting for a big entertainer like Baaghi 2, and the first-day collection reflects the same. The action flick, which has Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda and Manoj Bajpayee in the main roles, is expected to earn an amount of Rs 50 crore in opening weekend.
