It has also broken the record of the highest opening day by a young actor, which was previously held by Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Besharam’ which earned ₹19.87 crores. It broke Padmaavat‘s record by ₹6 crores on its opening day and became the highest opening in 2018.
This is Disha Patani’s second outing in Bollywood, she was last seen in M.S. Dhoni and Tiger Shroff was last seen in Munna Micheal. While it smashes the Indian Box Office, it has earned a good amount of moolah overseas too.
