Badlapur starring Varun Dhawan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in lead roles has taken a slow start at the Box Office. Considering that the film has released on a normal Friday, the film has opened with an occupancy of 25%-30% for the morning shows. However, the film showed a good growth in the afternoon shows across the country.
Badlapur has released in 1700 screens and thus looking at the screen count, the film has had a decent start. This Sriram Raghavan directorial is expected to pickup in the evening and night shows.
Since Varun Dhawan has a good fan following and also the film is already generating a huge positive word of mouth, it is expected to have a good first weekend. The film has received rave reviews from the critics and that will definitely help the film to get a boost. Badlapur is more urban centric and will perform much better at multiplexes than single screens.
