Box Office Collection Day 1
Aditya Roy Kapoor shown his versatility through films such as Aashiqui2, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Ludo and now is embracing the action avatar in OM as per the trailer, he’s performed the role with complete conviction.
The film targets masses but the issue is, the star is not popular and the trailers, posters as well as promotional events did not generate any excitement for the film lovers. If we follow the trends, it is expected to see opening numbers vary from from 0.8 up to 1.2 millions* within India. The numbers could rise during the weekend and depend on the word-of-mouth from the tragic crowd.
The film is battling Madhavan’s Rocketry The conflict won’t affect the movie’s success because both are separate films and target different audiences.
