Irrfan Khan’s latest release ‘Blackmail’ which has garnered amazing reviews from both critics and viewers alike, unfortunately has performed quite low at the ticket windows on its first day. The dark comedy which has impressed the audience with its interesting story-line and amazing performances has opened on a poor note on the moolah side.

In fact, this Irrfan Khan and Kirti Kulhari-starrer is unable to even surpass the first day opening of Rani Mukerji-starrer ‘Hichki’ which earned Rs. 3.25 crore on its first day. Talking about ‘Blackmail’, the movie has just been able to ring in Rs. 2.50 crore on the first day at the box office, which is quite poor.

FYI, ‘Blackmail’ released on Friday in 1550 screens across India and 311 screen overseas and with positive reviews all around, we hope that the film performs well on the weekend. Also, a bit of sympathy factor might help boost the movie’s box office collection as Irrfan, who is diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumour, will be away from the silver screen for a while now.
