Bollywood actor Aamir Khan and Zaira Wasim brought another beautiful movie — Secret Superstar — to the screen after Dangal. Released on Diwali (October 19), the movie has touched many hearts. Riding on huge hype, Secret Superstar opened to an average response and its first day collection was a bit low. Apart from Zaira and Aamir, people have highly praised Meher Vij, who plays Zaira’s mother in Secret Superstar.
On the opening day, Secret Superstar started the journey on an average note but picked up impressively well from the next day due to positive word of mouth and did the business of 31.10 crores in the opening weekend, that included 4.80 crores of Thursday, 9.25 crores of Friday, 8.55 crores of Saturday and 8.50 crores of Sunday.
Then in weekdays with average but steady note, it minted the amount of 3.05 crores on Monday, 2.75 crores on Tuesday, 2.40 crores on Wednesday and 2.29 crores on Thursday. After the opening week, total collection of the movie was recorded as 41.59 crores from 1750 screens at domestic box office.
Now Zaira Wasim starrer is running in the second weekend and has biggie Golmaal Again of superstar Ajay Devgn in opposite. On 2nd Friday, the movie raked the business of 1.85 crore with around 19.20% of drop than the previous day.
Then on 2nd Saturday, Secret Superstar witnessed decent growth in footfalls and garnered the business of 2 crores. With this, total 9 days domestic collection of this musical entertainer has become 45.44 crores. It is positively expected to take more growth on Sunday.
With the kind of appreciation that it was getting pre-release and then the reviews that it gathered post-release, one would have expected the dip in numbers to be only around 50%. However, the collections were down steeper than expected as a result of which the journey towards the 50 crore mark hasn’t been as fast as it deserved.
