Mumbai: Ajay Devgn may not have had a dream run at the Box Office with directorial ‘Shivaay’ last year. But Milan Luthria’s ‘Baadshaho’ is making all the right noises. The actioner with breathtaking action sequences has set the cash registers ringing.
According to trade analyst and movie critic Taran Adarsh, ‘Baadshaho’ has minted over Rs 43 crores in the opening weekend.
Check out Adarsh’s tweet here:
#Baadshaho fared well in its opening weekend... Fri 12.60 cr, Sat 15.60 cr, Sun 15.10 cr. Total: ₹ 43.30 cr. India biz.

Set in the times of the Emergency, the heist drama that also stars Ileana D’Cruz, Esha Gupta, Emraan Hashmi, Vidyut Jamwal and Sanjay Mishra has given huge relief to Bollywood trade experts who were hoping that the film does well.
So far, year 2017 has been very disappointing for Bollywood. Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight’ and Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Jab Harry Met Sally’ too failed to draw moviegoers to the theatres, thereby making things worse for the distributors. Akshay Kumar’s ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ and small budget films such as ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ have impressed the audiences.
And with ‘Baadshaho’ inching close to the Rs 50 crore mark in about 4 days since its release, it looks likely that the Ajay Devgn starrer will make it to the Rs 100 crore club soon.
