Brahmastra starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt had a little increase on day 3 and earned between 41 and 42 crore on Sunday. The Ayan Mukerji-directed movie made more than 120 crore in Hindi and other languages during its debut weekend.
Brahmastra Part One: Shiva starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s kept doing well at the box office. Despite receiving a mixed bag of reviews, the Ayan Mukerji-helmed movie with Karan Johar’s support made some progress on Sunday. In comparison to the 37 crore it generated on day 2, Brahmastra’s Hindi version brought in approximately 41–42 crore on day 3, bringing its weekend gross to 110 crore globally. Trade analysts anticipate a potential weekend revenue of 250 crores.
On September 9, Brahmastra was released in theatres in Hindi as well as in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam. Along with Ranbir and Alia, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, and Nagarjuna all appear, and Shah Rukh Khan and other celebrities make cameo appearances. The script and editing of Brahmastra have drawn criticism, despite appreciation for its visual effects. Brahmastra’s three-day earnings in Hindi are said to be around 110 crore net (with 41–42 crore on Sunday), while the movie made about 45 crore in all languages on Sunday alone, according to trade sources.
The inaugural weekend’s total revenue for all formats—including those in languages other than Hindi—surpassed 120 crore nett. However, some celebrities, like Kangana Ranaut, and industry insiders have claimed that the Brahmastra box office figures are manipulated by the film’s producers.
Brahmastra had recorded a great opening with collections coming in the range of around ₹35-36 crore despite it releasing on a non-holiday. Brahmastra Day 1 collections have reportedly beaten the opening day figures of Ranbir Kapoor’s highest opening so far, Sanju, which had collected ₹34.75 crore on day 1 in 2018. As per the makers, Brahmastra had earned ₹160 crore in its first two days worldwide. Earlier, it was reported that with many shows going houseful, theatres in many major centres had now opened early morning and late night shows to keep up with the increased demands.
Recently, Alia Bhatt had shared a post by Ayan on Instagram, thanking all those who watched the film. Ayan’s original post read, “Gratitude, excitement, hope! A big thank you to everyone, everywhere who has gone to the cinemas to experience Brahmastra, keeping our movie going culture vibrant and dynamic. Looking forward to the next few days.”
