Saand Ki Aankh Box Office Day 1 (Early Trends): Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar’s biographical drama has clashed with Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh’s Housefull 4 and Rajkummar Rao’s Made In China. All the three of them have separate target audience and could enjoy their own presence.
According to the early trends, the movie has collected poorly on day 1. In the range of 50-75 lakhs, Saand Ki Aankh has faced the Housefull storm and the pre-Diwali effect. It needs a big bump over the weekend and great hold on the weekdays to report good collections.
In the other news, the movie has been declared tax free in Delhi. Before this, it was Uttar Pradesh and now it’s the Capital. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of Delhi tweeted: “Delhi govt gives tax-free status to ‘Saand Ki Aankh‘ in Delhi. The message of the movie should reach to people of every age, gender and background?The power of a dream, and the power derived from it to achieve it, despite any socio-cultural blocks.”
Saand Ki Aankh, which is based on the lives of India’s oldest sharpshooters, Prakashi Tomar and Chandro Tomar, has also been declared tax free in Uttar Pradesh. Before hitting the big screen on Friday, the Tushar Hiranandani directorial was screened as the closing film at Jio MAMI 21st Mumbai Film Festival with Star 2019. The film received a standing ovation after the screening.
