Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan has opened to a below average number at the box office. The film, starring Vicky Kaushal, Abhishek Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu, earned Rs3.25 crore yesterday, as per figures shared by Boxofficeindia.com.

The film has opened better than the filmmaker’s last film Mukkabaaz (Rs81 lakh), which was also produced by Aanand L Rai.

Manmarziyaan is Kashyap’s second highest opener after Bombay Velvet (2015), which made Rs5.24 crore on its opening day. However, that film’s budget was over Rs100 crore and it turned out to be a disaster at the ticket windows.

According to trade sources, Manmarziyaan is made at an estimated budget of Rs25-30 crore. It needs a good jump in collections today and tomorrow to have a good chance at the box office.

The other two releases of the week, Nitin Kakkar’s Mitron and Tabrez Noorani’s Love Sonia had disastrous openings of Rs40-50 lakh and Rs25 lakh, respectively. Despite positive reviews for both the films, the audience decided to stay away.
