October Box Office: Varun Dhawan – the hit machine of Bollywood, the man who has not yet delivered a failure since his debut is back with a risky project October. Directed by Shoojit Sircar, the movie has opened with some amazing critic reviews.
October has been getting a kind of mixed word of mouth from the audience and that has reflected on the day ones collection of the film. The movie has earned 5.04 crores on its day one.
When Varun Dhawan modified his shade to strip off the superstar image last time, he did Badlapur. That movie surely also had Nawazuddin Siddiqui and a touch of commercial elements. Badlapur earned 7 crores on its day one back in 2015.
Varun Dhawan’s highest opener till now is Dilwale that earned 21 crores on its day one. But Dilwale was a multi-starrer having the presence of mighty Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. Last year, Varun Dhawan did the magic and gave Judwaa 2 a bumper opening of 16.10 crores.
His ABCD 2 also performed superbly at the box office as it earned 14.30 crores on its first day. Varun Dhawan’s lowest opener, till now, was Main Tera Hero with 6.50 crores but now October has placed itself on the bottom of that list.
Check out the first day collection of Varun Dhawan’s films:
Dilwale – 21 crores
Judwaa 2 – 16.10 crores
ABCD – Any Body Can Dance 2 – 14.3 crores
Badrinath Ki Dulhania – 12.25 crores
Dishoom – 11.05 crores
Student of the Year – 9.25 crores
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya – 9 crores
Badlapur – 7 crores
Main Tera Hero – 6.5 crores
October – 5.04 crores
Though October is expected to pick up, it’ll need a miracle to show some substantial growth. The real test for the film will start from Monday and makers will hope it shouldn’t witness a major crash.
The movie doesn’t have any tough competition at the box office, Tiger Shroff’s Baaghi 2 is its major roadblock.
