Pagalpanti box office collection day 1: This week’s release Pagalpanti has unleashed havoc at the cinema screens but not in a positive way. Going by the latest reports, the film is so torturous that audiences are leaving the theatres mid-way and actually cancelling their plans. This update especially comes as a shock and disappointment for many including John Abraham and Anil Kapoor fans. While Anil Kapoor has carved a niche for himself in comedy films, John Abraham is known to have delivered back to back hits.
Film trade analyst Joginder Tuteja has confirmed that Pagalpanti has earned Rs 7.10 crore on its first day at the cinema screens. Trade analyst Rohit Jaisal has also earlier predicted a single-digit opening for Pagalpanti. Early estimates had suggested that the film might have earned Rs 7-9 crore on its first day at the box office. The trade analyst’s tweet also suggests that many shows of Pagalpanti slated for Monday have been cancelled.
While Pagalpanti has been bashed by the critics for its poor comedy, some of the social media users have actually praised the film, especially Arshad Warsi’s performance. In his latest tweet, Joginder Tuteja has also praised Arshad for his consistent performance in multistarrer comedy films.
Helmed by No Entry director Aneez Bazmee and bankrolled under the banner of T Series and Panorama Studios, Pagalpanti also stars Ileana D Cruz, Arshad Warsi, Urvashi Rautela, Pulkit Samrat, Kriti Kharbanda, Saurabh Shukla among many others in key roles. The film clashed with Ye Saali Zindagi and Frozen 2 at the cinemas but the three films are not in any sort of competition since they have completely different audiences.
After Pagalpanti, John Abraham will be seen in films like Satyameva Jayate and Mumbai Saga. Meanwhile, Anil Kapoor will be seen in upcoming films like Malang and Takht.
