Nikhil Advani’s directorial latest romantic action movie Hero is about to completed its first week at box office with decent collection. It was released last Friday on 11th September with decent hype among audience. Hero received mixed reviews from critics as well as audience but still successfully managed to gross decent figures on Indian screens. Superstar Salman Khan is the producer of the movie and also the reason behind such decent response.
Hero is an official remake of Subhash Ghai’s directorial class love story with same title, that was released in year 1983 and was featured Jackie Shroff & Meenakshi Sheshadri in lead roles. the 2015’s version features the two new faces Sooraj Pancholi & Athiya Shetty, who are debuting in Bollywood with this movie. Both lead actors are star kids, Sooraj is the son of Aditya Pancholi & Athiya is Sunil Shetty’s daughter. Both have shown good efforts in the movie but unfortunately failed to impress audience.
In its first weekend, Hero was done the business of total 21.10 crores at domestic box office that included 6.85 crores of Friday, 6.62 crores of Saturday & 7.63 crores of Sunday. At overseas box office, the total collection of the movie after a weekend was 4.60 crores. These figures are decent but a good start for newcomers, doesn’t matter what is the reason behind. Now it is running in normal working days and as expected facing drops in its business.
