Tiger Shroff-starrer "A Flying Jatt" was released on a holiday but the film's first day box office collection was below expectation and its day 2 collection aslo remained low.
"A Flying Jatt," starring Tiger and Jacqueline, did not receive positive response from the critics and in spite of being released on the holiday of Janmashtami, the film had collected just Rs. 7.10 crore nett at the Indian box office.
Having released in 2,500 to 2,600 screens, the super-hero film was expected to have overwhelming box office response on the opening day and would break Tiger's "Baaghi" record that had collected Rs. 11.94 crore on its first day. However, it has broken the opening day record of Tiger's debut movie "Heropanti" that had collected Rs. 6.63 crore on first day.
Now, "A Flying Jatt" has collected Rs. 6 crore on its 2nd day at the domestic market. "#AFlyingJatt remains low on Fri...Sat+Sun are crucial days...Thu [Janmashtami] 7.10 cr, Fri 6 cr. Total: 13.10 cr. India biz," tweeted Taran Adarsh. Directed by Remo D'Souza, the movie failed to impress the critics and now it has to depend much on the word of mouth.
However, it has the advantage of not having clashed with any other big releases and is likely to pick up pace at the box office over the weekend. "Rustom," which was dominating the box office ever since its release, has also slowed down.
This is Tiger's third film and both his previous movies were box office hits. "Heropanti" had a collection of Rs. 21.33 crore over its first weekend and "Baaghi" went ahead of that with Rs. 38.58 crore within the same time. "A Flying Jatt" also features Amrita Singh, Kay Kay Menon and Nathan Jones.
