Freaky Ali had a stable weekend with approx 8.60 crore* (early estimates) coming in. The promo had given the impression though that 10 crore would be comfortably crossed in its first three days.
In that perspective the opening, though stable, hasn’t quite been on the same lines as expectations. Still, the fact that audiences are giving this Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer a chance means some sort of stability over the weekdays may just result in a fair chance for the film.
Both Baar Baar Dekho and Freaky Ali have a lot of ground to cover in days to come and with two new releases ahead of it (Raaz Reboot and Pink), one waits to see how audiences respond to them before there is a clearer picture about the eventual verdict.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
Note: All collections as per production and distribution sources
