Given the kind of merits that Fighter boasts of, had it released straight on Friday then it could well have had a shot at scoring a half century on its opening day itself. However, since it saw a Thursday release, the ‘first day’ kind of audience got divided and Rs. 24.60 crores came on the first day. Of course, all associated with Fighter would have wanted more and hence all eyes were on Friday to be huge. There is as much as a film can jump from first to the second day and hence even though Rs. 50 crores score didn’t come in, the good part was that a 70% jump was there and that was good enough to take it past the Rs. 40 crores mark.

Fighter Box Office: Crosses Rs. 40 crores mark on Friday, set to enter Rs. 100 Crores Club today

The Hrithik Roshan starrer ended up collecting Rs. 41.20 crores more and now it would be all about the kind of numbers that come in today and tomorrow. So far, the film has collected Rs. 65.80 crores and the bare minimum expectation would be for this much to come by the close of the extended weekend.

Today, the drop would be seen for sure since the big national holiday is through, and moreover a good chunk of audiences has already watched the film. However, it’s still a holiday and hence stability will be there and hence it has a shot at that Rs. 32-35 crores number today, hence resulting in the film entering the Rs. 100 Crores Club. Then there will be a jump all over again tomorrow and anything over Rs. 40 crores would be good to set it up well for the weekdays.

Siddharth Anand has made a very good film and one just hopes that these constant footfalls continue to generate very good word of mouth and an open fortnight is leveraged to the maximum.
