Key Highlight
  • Chandu Champion takes an opening of around Rs 4.75 crores nett as per early estimates
  • Chandu Champion has taken the 8th biggest start for a Hindi film in 2024
  • 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 around Rs 4.50-5 crores. It has taken the year'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, but it ideally had to be in the top 5. Chandu Champion's advance bookings were low, after which the makers consciously decided to reduce the ticket prices.

Chandu Champion Took The 8th Biggest Start Of 2024 For A Hindi Film As It Netted Rs 4.75 Crores

The aggressive pricing of tickets for the opening day helped the film get reasonable footfalls for the evening shows and the positive word of mouth should hopefully ensure strong growth over the long Eid weekend. Chandu Champion has taken the 9th biggest start for a Kartik Aaryan starrer and that is very discouraging taking into account that Kartik is now an established a-list actor and his films should be opening bigger.

The Big Openings Have Been Hard To Come By For Most Bollywood Actors Post Pandemic

In the post pandemic world, many actors are finding it tough to get into the groove from the box office perspective. Kartik has had 4 films release post pandemic. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 emerged as the biggest opener and highest grosser of the actor. The triumph of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 was short lived as Shehzada couldn't open well, nor do respectable numbers in its lifetime. Satyaprem Ki Katha gave some much needed respite but Chandu Champion has intensified the worries since it is the lowest opening for Kartik Aaryan in recent times and this kind of opening only shows the initial unwillingness of the audience for the movie. After Chandu Champion, Kartik Aaryan will hope that Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3 helps him get his box office mojo back.
