Simmba roars at BO; pockets over ₹ 20 crore on opening day

Ranveer Singh’s latest film Simmba, which hit the marquee on 28th December, has taken a terrific start at the box office. The movie opened to an excellent response and netted ₹ 20.72 crore on the opening day.

With a day-one income of ₹ 20.72 crore in its pocket, Simmba has emerged as Ranveer Singh’s highest opener to date. It has left behind his magnum opus Padmaavat (2018), which rolled into theatres earlier this year and minted ₹ 19 crore on its opening day.

Sharing the first-day collection of the move on his Twitter handle, noted film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote, “Simmba gathered momentum during the course of the day, with evening/night shows supporting the film… Mumbai circuit is rocking. Emerges (as) Ranveer Singh’s biggest opening day. Day 2 performing better than Day 1. Friday Rs. 20.72 crore (India business).”

Directed by Rohit Shetty, Simmba is produced by Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty. The film is expected to see a huge spike in its collection over the weekend. Besides Ranveer Singh, Simmba also stars Sara Ali Khan.
