Haider showed a decent jump on its second day. The film which released alongside Bang Bang rather held up well, without getting much affected by the other release. This Shahid Kapoor starrer saw 14% jump collecting 6.93 cr on Friday and made a cumulative business of 13.07 cr in just 2 days at the domestic box office. The film witnessed huge jump in most of the regions including Gujarat, Punjab, CP, CI, Rajasthan as well as in the East and mass regions.
The film has generated a huge positive word of mouth. Even though targeted at a niche audience, the film showed good footfalls at the multiplexes and single screens in the urban centers.
The Vishal Bhardwaj film has been rated positively by critics too and it seems to be working in favor of the film. By the end of first weekend, the film is estimated to rake in a moolah of approximately 28 crores, which will be good enough considering that the film will be easily recovering its costs.
