Right from the word go, Emraan Hashmi’s Azhar was a bit of a puzzle, why would we want to see a film about a disgraced cricketer that most millennials haven’t even heard about. Even the reviews were far from encouraging and it seemed like the movie was in for a disappointment. But our audience proved fickle as ever and turned up in droves to watch the movie. The film raked in a decent 6.30 Crores on its opening day which was a fairly good number.
The movie managed to add yet another 7 Crores on Saturday, thereby indicating some growth too. It has managed to make a cool 13.30 Crores in two days which can be considered a fairly decent start for a film of this scale. Trade analysts figure that a weekend collection of 22 Crores seems very realistic and we feel that the makers of Azhar must be a fairly happy bunch right now.
