An Action Hero, the latest movie from Ayushmann Khurrana and Jaideep Ahlawat, is slowly but gradually ascending the box office ladder. The picture, which debuted at a low point despite excellent reviews, has grown by almost 60%, earning Rs 2.52 crore on day three, bringing its total to Rs 5.99 crore.
The movie has stiff competition from Ajay Devgn and Tabu’s thriller Drishyam 2, which was released on November 18, and Varun Dhawan’s Bhediya, which was released on November 25. Drishyam 2 had a fantastic weekend, grossing Rs 10.39 crore on Sunday. Its total is currently Rs 186.76 crore. Bhediya, on the other hand, earned Rs 4.36 crore, indicating a positive trend. It grossed Rs 52.06 crore at the movie office.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the latest box office numbers of the films and tweeted, “#Drishyam2 is a STORM that’s not going to subside soon… #D2 has revived weekend biz at metros as well as mass pockets… Biz on [third] Sat and Sun is EXCEPTIONAL… [Week 3] Fri 4.45 cr, Sat 8.45 cr, Sun 10.39 cr.
