Secret Superstar is off to a good start at the Bollywood box office. The Zaira Wasim and Aamir Khan starrer, which is garnering positive word-of-mouth, has collected Rs 4.80 crore on Day 1.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the box office figures. He tweeted, “#SecretSuperstar Thu ₹ 4.80 cr. India biz… Biz should grow today [Fri].”
Secret Superstar, which hit screens on October 19, tells the story of Insia, who wants to be a singer but faces resistance from her father. But overcoming all her obstacles, the Baroda girl becomes a sensation when she starts uploading anonymous videos of her performances online while wearing a hijab and refusing to reveal her identity.

Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta had given a positive review of the film, and said, “The biggest strength of Secret Superstar is the wonderful Wasim who was also in Dangal: it is such a delight to see a 15-year-old look and feel like a regular teen, dealing disarmingly with first crushes and strumming a guitar properly, and not a painted doll. Both Vij as the mother who helps and Arjun as the father who hinders are terrific, especially the former, who is the real beating heart of Secret Superstar.”
