‘Baaghi 2’ Day 1 Collection, Tiger-Disha starrer Registers 2018 Biggest Opening

With rs 25 crore in its pocket, Tiger Shroff’s film has dethroned “Padmaavat” as the biggest opener of 2018.

Baaghi 2, starring Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani in leading roles, is off to a phenomenal start at the domestic box office with a collection of approximately Rs 25 crore nett, according to a report on BoxofficeIndia.com.
The high-octane action flick has checked itself in the list of highest opening Bollywood films of all time. In fact, the film is now reported to be the highest opening by a young star, a record previously held by Ranbir Kapoor for the film ‘Besharam’, which had earned Rs 19.87 crore. The film has also beaten Salman Khan’s ‘Kick’ and Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Bang Bang’, to take the 14th spot in the top 15 highest opening days of all time.

Here are the top five day 1 collection numbers:

Baaghi 2 emerged victorious on the box office despite being poorly received by film critics. Saibal Chatterjee in his review said: “Baaghi 2 is more a two-and-a-half-hour stunt show than a genuine piece of cinema.” He gave the film two stars out of five. Film critic Raja Sen rated the film 1-star and wrote: “It is a long, painful film capable of giving audiences post-traumatic stress disorder.”

Baaghi 2 is a remake of Telugu film Kshanam. The Ahmed Khan-directed film also stars Disha Patani, Manoj Bajpayee, Randeep Hooda and Deepak Dobriyal. Before the release of Baaghi 2, the producers had announced a third film with the same director and lead actor.
