Filmmaker Mohit Suri‘s latest offering – Malang is faring decently at the Box Office. The film, starring Disha Patani, Aditya Roy Kapur and Anil Kapoor in the lead, collected Rs 8.89 crore on Saturday, taking the total Rs 15.60 crore. The Sunday collections of the film are expected to register the best day in terms of earning so far.
Malang opened with a lukewarm response and earned Rs 6.71 crore at the Box Office on its first day. As per a tweet made by trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film is going to emerge as the highest-grossing film for Aditya in terms of his solo entertainers. The tweet read, “#Malang witnesses substantial growth on Day 2, despite #Delhi having limited screenings… Should score on Day 3 [Sun] as well… Eyes ₹ 24 cr [+/-] weekend – the highest for #AdityaRoyKapur [solo hero films]… Fri 6.71 cr, Sat 8.89 cr. Total: ₹ 15.60 cr. #India biz.” (sic)
Malang is a love story in the background of deceit, revenge and toxic tie-ups. The film also features Kunal Kemmu whose performance has been appreciated by many critics. The film has also been liked for its music. Many romantic tracks filmed on Aditya and Disha are currently running as chartbusters.
Both Aditya and Disha had to go through some rigorous training for the film. For a popular sequence, the two had to learn ATV Bike riding, water gliding and underwater breath-holding techniques. Their steamy underwater kiss remained one of the highlights of the film.
Malang is Mohit Suri’s second film with Aditya and the duo has already announced their third collaboration – Ek Villain 2. The director will be bringing Aditya and John Abraham together for the first time on-screen with the Ekta Kapoor film.
