New Delhi: Shraddha Kapoor and Varun Dhawan's 'Street Dancer 3D' opened in double digits on Day 1 and performed better than its rival 'Panga', which is headlined by Kangana Ranaut. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh, reports that 'Street Dancer 3D' earned Rs 10.26 crore but its business was affected in Mumbai due to Ajay Devgn's 'Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior', which is roaring at the box office at Rs 200 crore.
Adarsh also said that expectations were more from 'Street Dancer 3D' as its youth-centric and a big growth over the weekend is required for a good total.
"'Street Dancer3D' opens in double digits on Day 1... Should’ve collected higher, since youth-centric films, generally, open big... Biz affected in Mumbai circuit due to 'Tanhaji' wave... Big growth on Day 2 and 3 essential for a strong total... Fri Rs 10.26 cr," he wrote.
