The third week of February saw two releases. One was Bollywood film ‘Aiyaary’ which stars Sidharth Malhotra, Rakul Preet, Manoj Bajpayee and Pooja Chopra in the lead whereas the other one is Hollywood film ‘Black Panther’.
‘Aiyaary’ was earlier slated to release in the Republic week but postponed it’s release because director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’ finally managed to release. Even Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘PadMan’ postponed it’s release.
Talking about the first-day collection of the Neeraj Pandey directed patriotic thriller, the film managed to collect 3-3.25 crore nett at the box office.
The ‘Black Panther’ managed to collect 5-5.25 crore nett at the box office. Reportedly, the Hollywood film only had 55% of the Bollywood film’s screen space but still managed to collect numbers. (Also Read: Aiyaary: Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee’s film banned in Pakistan)
