Shehzada Box Office Collection Day 1 (Early Estimate): Shehzada, starring Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon, finally touched theatres today after its delayed release. With a modest advance booking report, the Rohit Dhawan-directed film is hoping to earn more on its opening day through walk-ups. This is Kartik’s second film following the phenomenal success of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which grossed a phenomenal amount on its opening day a year ago.
SHEHZADA BOX OFFICE COLLECTION UPDATE: NO TENDENCE IN BOOKING IN ADVANCE
According to the trade website sacnilk, Shehzada has sold over 22,000 tickets on over three thousand screens in India since its debut today. As of 1 p.m. on Thursday, only 12,000 tickets for the film’s opening day had been sold across the three national chains PVR, INOX, and Cinepolis. This is not only one of the lowest advance booking numbers for any big Bollywood star in the post-COVID era, but it is nothing near even half of what Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 did last year.

The Anees Bazmee-directed picture had about Rs 6.50 crore in advance purchases on the opening day, resulting in a phenomenal opening of Rs 14.11 crore net — the second largest opening day record for any Bollywood film in the post-COVID period. Yet, based on the advance sales that Shehzada has documented, it appears that the film will earn between Rs 5 and 7 crore on its opening day, and Rs 7 if it receives outstanding word-of-mouth.
