After registering a good collection on its first weekend, Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Bala opened to promising numbers on Monday. The trends are better than Ayushmann’s other hit films and it seems Bala is all set to become a huge hit.
Bala has collected Rs 8.26 crore on day four putting the total collection at Rs 52.21 crore. The Monday collection is higher than Ayushmann’s last hit Dream Girl which collected Rs 7.43 crore on its fourth day. Bala has already become the biggest opening film of Ayushmann’s career beating Dream Girl by a slight margin.
The film is only expected to see growth in its box office collection on day five (Tuesday) as it is a holiday in many parts of India on account of Guru Nanak Jayanti.
Film trade analyst and critic Taran Adarsh took to his social media account to share the business figures of Bala. He wrote, “#Bala crosses ₹ 50 cr… Remarkable hold on Day 4… Trends better than Ayushmann’s last hit #DreamGirl [Day 4: ₹ 7.43 cr]… Holiday on Day 5 [#GuruNanakJayanti] should only boost biz… Fri 10.15 cr, Sat 15.73 cr, Sun 18.07 cr, Mon 8.26 cr.
