Ajay Devgn-Emraan Hashmi starrer Baadshaho is giving other Bollywood releases a run for its money with its collection at the box office. It has already garnered Rs 64.14 crores but with a number of new movies coming up this week, will Baadshaho be able to hold its ground?
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the box office figures of this Milan Luthria-directed film. “#Baadshaho Fri 12.60 cr, Sat 15.60 cr, Sun 15.10 cr, Mon 6.82 cr, Tue 6.12 cr, Wed 4.30 cr, Thu 3.60 cr. Total: ₹ 64.14 cr. India biz,” tweeted Taran. As we can see, Baadshaho’s collection fell by more than 50% as soon as the week started from 15.10 crores to 6.82 crores.
Though the daily figures of the film have been dwindling since Monday, it passed the 50 crore mark during the beginning of the week itself. Baadshaho also stars Esha Gupta, Ileana D’Cruz, Sanjay Mishra and Vidyut Jamwal in the lead roles.

But we should also keep in mind that this was the first weekday since its release. Based on the Emergency period, Baadshaho is about a heist planned by Emraan and Ajay for the royal princess, Ileana. Even though the movie faces tough competition from Shubh Mangal Saavdhan featuring Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar, Baadshaho has done pretty well in terms of the box office numbers till now. This Friday, Arjun Rampal’s Daddy will hit the screens along with Bobby Deol-Sunny Deol’s Poster Boys.
Baadshaho also features Sunny Leone in a song, Piya More opposite Emraan Hashmi. It is also the third film that brings Ajay and Emraan together, after Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai and Dil Toh Bacha Hai Ji.
