Shandaar enjoys a long weekend starting with a Holiday of Dusshera this Thursday giving its release on this unusual day for the audience. The film appeared to be one of the best performer over the day considering the solo release on the holiday. The film seemed to had a good buzz in the media, thanks to the good star value along with a good promotion done by none other than the lead stars of the film- Alia Bhatt and Shahid Kapoor. Though the film collected mixed reviews along with having a number flaws in it, yet it managed to do a good business for obvious reasons.
As per reports, the first day box office collection for Shandaar tolls to around 13.1 crores, which is really a decent figure for the filmmaker. Dharma Productions was the first group to share this figure over Twitter claiming that it has beaten up all the major movies released this year be it Badlapur, Tanu Weds Manu Returns or Baby, which remained in between 9 to 7 crores. Thanks to the holiday, which helped the film to do a better business and considering one day in advance, the film will manage to get a good start in its first weekend as well. You never know it can become the top grocer of 2015.
