Anurag Kashyap’s Raman Raghav 2.0 received rave reviews and made a decent opening at the box office on Friday but still couldn’t trump this week’s Hollywood release, Independence Day: Resurgence.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Saturday that the Nawazuddin Siddiqui- Vicky Kaushal-starrer collected Rs 1.10 crore on the first day of its release while the Jeff Goldblum disaster movie made Rs 4.5 crore.
Though Rs 1 crore maybe a small number in itself, Raman Raghav 2.0, is made on a small budget (estimated at Rs 3.5 crore) and the number of screens on which it was released is not very high either.

Based on the infamous serial killer Psycho Raman from the 1960s Mumbai, Kashyap’s Raman Raghav 2.0 traces the life of a fictional psychotic killer Ramanna (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) who is inspired by Raghav.
Meanwhile, Udta Punjab, that released last week continued to make decent earnings at the box office with Rs 49.5 crore collections in the first week. Anurag, who co-produced Udta Punjab, had a bitter and long fight with the Central Board of Film Certification before the film could be released in theatres.
