Salman Khan’s production venture ‘Hero’ starring newbies Athiya Shetty and Sooraj Pancholi has shown a steady growth as it has amassed Rs 13.47 cr in two days. The movie did a good business on the first day of its release too by managing to collect a decent amount of Rs. 6.85 cr. (Hero review: Sooraj Pancholi, Athiya Shetty starrer is a zero)
Salman Khan tried to give the best launch pad to the two star kids. “The biggest challenge for me in this movie was not to care about the budget. Caring about the budget even a bit, could make this film into a disastrous film. So the kind of budgets that I work on, we’ve done the same budget for Athiya and Sooraj because their journey starts from this film onwards, so we didn’t want to leave any stone unturned,” Salman had said.
Trade analyst shared the box office collections of ‘Hero’ on Twitter.
