One of the most awaited flicks of this year was, of course, the Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani-starrer Baaghi 2. And, if early trends are any indicators, the trade circuit is hailing the film to have received the best opening of 2018.
As it turns out, the film, which hit the theatre screens today, has claimed the title of the biggest opening of 2018 with morning occupancy of around 45-50%, with a 3400 screen count.
It can be now said that the Tiger Shroff-starrer has taken a lead with a bumper opening followed by a strong word of mouth.
With an added advantage of the film being a Good Friday release, the action franchise has witnessed a good number of footfalls leading towards the theatre on its opening day.
So, could this mean that the film might just have a massive weekend number?
The film has been creating immense buzz ever since its announcement. The sequel to 2014 hit Baaghi has generated huge anticipation amongst the masses to witness the larger than life action franchise on screen.
With Baaghi 2, Shroff has taken the action a notch higher than what we had seen in the prequel. The actor is donning a never-seen-before avatar in the film, which is certainly the highlight of this flick.
The film also brings to celluloid Tiger and Disha for the very first time.
Baaghi 2 also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Randeep Hooda, Prateik Babbar, Deepak Dobriyal, Grandmaster Shifuji Shaurya Bharadwaj and introducing Sunit Morarjee in addition to Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani.
Co-Produced by Fox Star Studios and Sajid Nadiadwala under the banner name Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, ‘Baaghi 2’ is directed by Ahmed Khan has opened on a positive note at the box office.
