No one, just no one could see this coming. However, it has happened, and that too in huge style. Tiger Shroff‘s Baaghi 2 has taken nothing short of a blockbuster start at the box office. So much so that in the process it has also emerged as the best opener ever for a film featuring a young star.
One look at some of the best starts ever that a film featuring a relatively new actor has taken and one gets the picture:
Tiger Shroff’s Baaghi 2 – Rs 25.10 crore
Ranbir Kapoor‘s Besharam – Rs 21.56 crore
Ranbir Kapoor’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani – Rs 19.45 crore
Ranveer Singh‘s Padmaavat – Rs 19 crore
What further sets apart Baaghi 2 amongst all these films is the fact that its budget is remarkably lower than all. Also, it is the only out and out action film in this list. This isn’t all as he is also coming with two theatrical flops [A Flying Jatt, Munna Michael] behind him and has still made nothing less than a dream comeback.
The entire team of Sajid Nadiadwala, Fox Star and Ahmed Khan has rallied behind Tiger Shroff to give him the kind of platform that he deserves and the youngster has not disappointed either. Friday collections have done the trick for Baaghi 2 already and it is now all about sustaining at least reasonably well so that at least a Superhit is on the cards.
