The Tiger Shroff starrer Baaghi 3 has been making headlines since it commenced shooting thanks to the high octane action sequences. Now, last Friday the film hit 4400 screens across India, and opened on a good note. However, the business of the film fell short of expectations due to the ongoing Coronavirus scare that has been keeping audiences away.
In this box office analysis, we take a look at the opening weekend collections of Baaghi 3 while comparing the same to previous releases of 2020. Interestingly, Tiger Shroff has managed to beat Varun Dhawan with Baaghi 3 that collected Rs. 53.83 cr surpassing the collections of Street Dancer 3D that had collected Rs. 39 cr, to become the second highest opening weekend grosser of 2020. While the Ajay Devgn starrer Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior that had collected Rs. 61.75 cr still leads the list of highest opening weekend grossers of 2020, Baaghi 3 has out beaten other releases like Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan that collected Rs. 32.66 cr, Love Aaj Kal that collected Rs. 26 cr, Malang that collected Rs. 25.36 cr, Chhapaak that collected Rs. 19.02 cr, Bhoot: Part One - The Haunted Ship that collected Rs. 16.36 cr, Panga that collected Rs. 14.91 cr, and Thappad that had collected Rs. 13.98 cr.
Now, all that remains to be seen is, whether Baaghi 3 that enjoys an unopposed run in theatres goes on to become one of the highest opening week grossers of 2020. However, while trade expectations state that this scenario is highly plausible, the question remains whether the Coronavirus scare that is gripping the nation will eventually affect the overall business of Baaghi 3.
