Bollywood films, which have returned to theaters after Kovid 19 and lockdown, have struggled hard at the box office. And for Ayushmann Khurrana too, this comeback was not very profitable at the box office. After the lockdown, two of his films ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ and ‘Anek’ have been released. Both got good reviews but the film was a flop in terms of business in theatres.
Now Ayushmann’s third film ‘Doctor Ji’ has been released on Friday and the kind of opening that the film got on the first day would certainly not have been very comforting to the makers of ‘Doctor Ji’. But Saturday’s box office figures are showing that ‘Doctor Ji’ seems to be standing in theaters and its earnings have increased significantly on the second day.
The trend of Friday’s box office collection was indicating that ‘Doctor Ji’ is going to get an opening of close to 3 crores on the first day. But according to the final figures that came, Ayushmann Khurrana and Rakul Preet Singh starrer film got a little less than 4 crore opening on the first day. The film collected Rs 3.87 crore on the first day at the box office.
Since 2018, most of Ayushmann Khurrana’s films have opened between 5 to 10 crores. Accordingly, the opening collection of ‘Doctor Ji’ cannot be said to be very good. But there was not much excitement among the public regarding the film which was seen before the lockdown. Therefore, the opening of ‘Doctor Ji’ can be considered fine.
The box office figures of the second day of ‘Doctor Ji’ are telling that the film has collected around Rs 5.20 crore. According to the numbers, ‘Doctor Ji’ has taken a jump of 30-40 percent at the box office on Saturday as compared to Friday, which is a solid growth. Accordingly, the collection of the film has crossed Rs 9 crore in two days.

The advance booking figures for the third day i.e. Sunday show that opening weekend collection There is a trend at the box office that films do more collections on Sundays than on Saturdays.

The collection of the film for two days and the estimate of the third day is indicating that the public is reaching theaters to see this film of Ayushmann. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see whether ‘Doctor Ji’ will be able to become Ayushmann’s first hit after the lockdown.
