Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the figures. “#IndiasMostWanted witnessed growth over the weekend, but not substantial enough... The 3-day total, thus, remains below the mark...

The film that opened at just Rs 2 crore on Friday, collected Rs 3 crore on its second day, taking its total collections to Rs 5 crore. The film clashed with Vivek Oberoi’s PM Narendra Modi and Disney’s Aladdin. 

The Hollywood biggie Aladdin surpassed the earnings of Modi biopic and India’s Most Wanted. “#Aladdin emerges the first choice of moviegoers... Biz jumps on Day 3 [vis-à-vis Day 1]... Fares much better than the two #Hindi releases... Needs to maintain the pace on weekdays... Fri 4.25 cr, Sat 6.50 cr, Sun 7.75 cr. Total: 18.50 cr Nett BOC. India biz. Gross: 22.03 cr,” Taran tweeted. Aladdin is a live-action adaptation of Disney’s 1992 classic and has been directed by Guy Ritchie. 

Vivek Oberoi’s PM Narendra Modi, that also hit theatres the same day, saw a good jump in the collections on Sunday and reached a total of Rs 11.76 crore in three days. “#PMNarendraModi showed positive trending across the weekend... Biz on Day 3 gave the much-required push... Weekdays crucial, since it needs to maintain the momentum for a satisfactory total... Fri 2.88 cr, Sat 3.76 cr, Sun 5.12 cr. Total: 11.76 cr.
