The Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer Gully Boy (2019), which opened to largely positive response on Valentine’s Day, minted an impressive collection of ₹ 19.40 crores on its opening day at the domestic box-office.
With its first-day income of ₹ 19.40 crores, Gully Boy has turned out to be Ranveer Singh’s second biggest opener after Simmba (2018), a cop drama which released in December 2018 and went on to rake in ₹ 20.72 crores on its opening day.
Gully Boy is helmed by well-known filmmaker Zoya Akhtar. It is being heralded as her best work so far. The movie revolves around a young slum boy who wants to make it big as a rapper, fighting against all odds.
After setting the cash registers jingling on its opening day, the film is now expected to keep up the momentum and earn a handsome amount before closing out its first weekend at the box-office.
Trade pundits are of the opinion that if the movie registers a spike in its collection on Friday, it will easily cross the coveted ₹ 100 crore mark within its first extended weekend.
Gully Boy is an Excel Entertainment offering.
