The Hindi action comedy Shehzada starring Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon finally hit the theatres on Friday and took a reasonable opening despite low advance bookings. The official Hindi remake of Allu Arjun’s Telugu hit Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, has received mixed reviews from critics as well as the audience across the country.
Directed by Rohit Dhawan, Shehzada opened on a slow note in the morning on Friday but reported slight growth post-noon shows. In the end, it registered a reasonable business of 6 crores nett from 3000+ screens at the domestic box office. The film is expected to take a good jump on Saturday due to the Maha Shivratri holiday.
Another new release is from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania which has received mixed reviews from critics but getting favourable reactions from the audience across India. On Friday, the film took a decent start and managed to register a good opening with 8.50 crores nett.
