Key Highlight
  • Chandu Champion collects Rs 4.75 crores on the first day as per early estimates
  • Chandu Champion has taken the 9th biggest start for a Kartik Aaryan starrer
  • Chandu Champion plays at a theatre near you, now

Chandu Champion directed by Kabir Khan and starring Kartik Aaryan took a slow start at the box office as it netted Rs 4.50-5 crores on the first day. Chandu Champion emerged as Kartik Aaryan's 9th biggest opener, behind Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, Love Aaj Kal, Satyaprem Ki Katha, Pati Patni Aur Woh, Luka Chuppi, Pyaar Ka Panchnama, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety and Shehzada and the result is underwhelming considering that the actor is now an a-lister and the film should be opening better.

Chandu Champion Collects Rs 4.75 Crores And Emerges Kartik Aaryan's 9th Biggest Opener

Chandu Champion had to be among the top 5 openers of Kartik Aaryan even in the worst case scenario but that's not how it has ended up being. The advance bookings were low and then the ticket rates were slashed on the last day of the advance bookings. The subsidising of tickets helped in relatively higher footfalls but the collections more or less remained unaffected. The hit that the producers have taken on the first day by slashing the ticket prices should reap great dividends over the weekend since the initial word of mouth for the movie is positive.

Chandu Champion Emerges 2024's 8th Biggest Opener In Hindi

Chandu Champion has taken 2024's 8th biggest start, behind Fighter, Shaitaan, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, Crew, Mr And Mrs Mahi, Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya and Article 370 and also here, the film had to be in the top 5 to justify the presence of an a-list actor-director duo. The road ahead for the movie is difficult but two open weeks can help it find its groove.
