Previously, Sushant Singh Rajput couldn’t do big at the Box Office and Shuddh Desi Romance only managed 6.5 crores on the first day. But, M.S. Dhoni has marked great success for Sushant’s career by breaking his previous records and with this release, he has become one of the 2nd biggest openers for 2016. In fact, it has been a third biggest for Fox Productions after Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (40.35 crores) and Bang Bang (27.54 crores).
The film has now become a part of the big leagues and has raised the hopes high for entering the 100 crore club.
Sharing the first day collections and the movie status, Trade Analyst – Taran Adarsh tweeted:
