Manmarziyaan made a collection of Rs 3.25 at the box office on Friday, and the response for the movie was good in Delhi NCR and East Punjab. The reason it did not pick up on its first day could be because of its clash with Mitron and Love Sonia, both of which were released on the same day.

Film critic Taran Adarsh, who publishes reports on the box office collections of Bollywood movies, tweeted the following about the movie:
Both Saturday and Sunday are significant to Manmarziyaan’s performance. The business should grow on the weekend, as it always happens. However, the real test for the film will begin from Monday.
