Akshay Kumar-Kriti Sanon film rakes in Rs 13.5 crore despite The Kashmir Files dominance

There were reports of how the whole team of Bachchhan Paandey were tensed about how The Kashmir Files would take away some of the sheen on the opening day. But it looks like the fears were unfounded as Bachchhan Paandey has taken a solid opening at the box office. The movie has made somewhere in between Rs 12.5 to 14.5 crores as per maximum estimates. As per Box Office India, the collections are in the range of Rs 13 to 13. 5 crores, which is great given how The Kashmir Files is dominating the box office. The screen count of Bachchhan Paandey also came down due to Vivek Agnihotri’s movie.

Critics are saying that Bachchhan Paandey is one of the best masala films to come out of Bollywood in recent times. Our reviewer Russell D’Silva wrote, “Bachchhan Paandey is a paisa-vasool treat for Akshay Kumar fans as the actor is in full ‘Rowdy Rathore’ mode, going no-holds-barred with his swag while also subtly reminding us what a fine actor he is with his diction and body language.” Also Read – Bachchhan Paandey: Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon, Arshad Warsi’s full film leaked online on Tamilrockers, MovieRulz and more torrent sites
