It is not just an excellent start that Tiger Shroff’s Baaghi 2 has managed at the Box Office; it is in fact a record breaking opening for any film. There are quite a few records that the Sajid Nadiadwala, Fox Star and Ahmed Khan film has set on its very first day. However the one that would be closest to Tiger Shroff’s heart is the one which is centered on action films.
Ever since the release of his first film Heropanti, Tiger has been striving to make his place as Bollywood’s bonafide action hero. Well, he would be pleased to bits now that he has managed to find his place amongst the best of the best now.
One look at the opening day numbers of the Top-10 Bollywood action films (ever since the 100 Crore Club came into existence) and one gets the gist:
Dhoom: 3 – Rs 34.50 crore
Tiger Zinda Hai – Rs 34.10 crore
Ek Tha Tiger – Rs 33 crore
Singham Returns – Rs 32 crore
Bang Bang – Rs 27.54 crore
Kick – Rs 26.52 crore
Krrish 3 – Rs 25.50 crore
Baaghi 2 –Rs 25.10 crore
Agneepath – Rs 23 crore
Bodyguard – Rs 21.60 crore
As can be seen, Baaghi 2 has managed to find eight’s spot in the list and that is truly remarkable for many reasons. First and foremost, he is the only youngster in this list with just four films behind him. Otherwise, there are superstars like Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn and Hrithik Roshan occupying all the remaining slots. While Salman Khan has four films in there, Hrithik Roshan follows with three films whereas Aamir Khan and Ajay Devgn have a film apiece. This isn’t all as most of the films in this list arrived during major holiday season whereas Baaghi 2 has released on a partial holiday [Good Friday].
Baaghi 2 has emerged as a biggie, and how!
