Actors Salman Khan and Aayush Sharma's film 'Antim: The Final Truth' has been released a day earlier on 26 November (Friday). The action-drama film has made a box office collection of Rs 4.25-4.50 crore on its opening day. In this sense, it is being considered a good opening. The film is also getting a good response from the audience and critics. Trade pundits expect the film to collect even more on the second day i.e. Saturday. Apart from this, film critics believe that the film will do well on weekends as well.
'Antim' gives a jolt to 'Satya Mev Jayate 2'
Salman's 'Antim' is having a box office clash with John Abraham's 'Satya Mev Jayate 2'. 'Satya Mev Jayate 2' has been released in cinemas on Thursday (25 November), a day before 'Antim'. Now after the release of 'Antim', there has been a drop of 40-50 percent in the box office collection of 'Satya Mev Jayate 2'. 'Satyamev Jayate 2' had earned Rs 2.75 crore on the first day. Surprisingly, Salman Khan is playing the role of a Sardar cop in the film. Even after this, the film has not been seen performing well in the Punjab and Delhi circuits.
Bihar is reportedly the best circuit for 'Antim' with big circuits like East Punjab, Rajasthan, CP Brar, and West Bengal expected to do well over the weekend. 'Antim' has also earned a decent opening day from the Maharashtra circuit. Facing competition from 'Satyamev Jayate 2', 'Antim' is doing well in single screens and multiplexes. It is expected that on Saturday and Sunday, there will be an increase in the earnings of 'Antim' on the weekend. Apart from Salman-Ayush, Mahima Makwana is also in the lead role in the film. The film is directed by Mahesh Manjrekar, produced by Salma Khan, and presented by Salman Khan Films. The film is a Hindi remake of the blockbuster Marathi film Mulshi Pattern.
