On Friday, Angrezi Medium was opened at a poor note in the morning with around 8-10% occupancy. Over the evening and nights shows, the film has witnessed a decent jump and managed to collect 4.03 crores nett at the domestic box office. In 2017, its predecessor Hindi Medium took the opening of 2.81 crores.
