Aiyaary has taken an ordinary opening at the Box Office. Even on a conservative note, the film was expected to collect Rs. 6-7 crore on Friday. However the actual numbers are much lesser as only Rs. 3.50 crore* came in. Average occupancy for the film was around 20%-30% mark and though footfalls did increase by evening and night shows, the jump wasn’t the kind that would have suggested a major turnaround.
Fortunately for the film there isn’t any competition around as Padmaavat is three week old whereas Pad Man isn’t causing much of a threat either. If the word of mouth does start spreading more towards the positive side, Aiyaary still is in with a chance to see some sort of a turnaround. However if it has to happen, it has to happen really quick and fast between today and tomorrow.
