Simmba box office collection Day 1: Simmba box office collection Day 1: Ranveer Singh’s film has a bright future.

Ranveer Singh’s Simmba promises to end 2018 in style as it opened with Rs 20.72 crore. A Rohit Shetty directorial, Simmba also stars Sara Ali Khan and Sonu Sood. After the disappointment that was Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero, those moviegoers who are looking for a good Bollywood movie to watch around New Year will flock to theaters to watch Simmba.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the figures. He wrote, “#Simmba gathered momentum during the course of the day, with evening/night shows supporting the film… Mumbai circuit is rocking… Emerges Ranveer Singh’s biggest opening day… Day 2 performing better than Day 1… Fri ₹ 20.72 cr. India biz.

While Zero may be a shocking disaster, it is a boon for the makers of Simmba, otherwise it would have created problems for the Ranveer Singh film.

It is also interesting to note that the year began with Padmaavat, the controversial historical film that also starred Singh.

In another tweet, Taran Adarsh tweeted the opening day numbers of Ranveer Singh movies. He wrote, “Ranveer Singh – Opening Day biz… 1. #Simmba ₹ 20.72 cr 2. #Padmaavat ₹ 19 cr [Thu] 3. #Gunday ₹ 16.12 cr 4. #GoliyonKiRaasleelaRamLeela ₹ 16 cr 5. #BajiraoMastani ₹ 12.80 cr India biz.

Simmba has received mixed reviews, The Indian Express’ Shubhra Gupta gave it 2 stars. She wrote, “The only reason to watch Simmba then, is Ranveer Singh. In his sharp moochh sticking up at both ends, shiny bronzed face, broad shoulders filling out, eventually, the khakee uniform, Singh is Simmba.”

Shubhra added, “Striding into cop stations, wading into ‘goondas’, losing his heart to the girl across the road Shagun (Ali Khan), Singh is fully alive to the moment, knowing that he is working in a template, aware that he has to keep breaking out.”
