Post pandemic ‘Mumbai Saga’ starring John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi becomes the first action flick to hit the theatres screens after almost a year. Despite rising cases of corona causing movie theatres to allow only 50% occupancy, the film has managed to receive a good response at the box office.
According to Boxofficeindia.com report, ‘Mumbai Saga’ has now marked a collection of Rs. 2.25-2.50 crore range approximately on Saturday. Meanwhile, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared that the Sanjay Gupta film had garnered around Rs.2.83 crore earlier on its first day. The film’s total collection now stands around Rs 5.22-5.25 crores as per the latest numbers, indicating a fall of 25% almost, owing to the restrictions imposed by the Maharashtrian govt to ensure safety amid the number of rising corona cases in the city.
John had recently revealed that he prefers the big-screen experience over OTT platforms. He shared with PTI, “It is important for the film industry to instill confidence in cinema owners as they open their theatres with adherence to the COVID-19 protocol, so that audience can once again look forward to the community viewing experience. He added, “I like to succeed in reaching out to more people. I want the audience to have that big screen experience. We lost that sense of big screen, heroism in films and ‘Mumbai Saga’ will bring that back.”
Apart from John and Emraan, the film also featured Gulshan Grover, Suniel Shetty, Rohit Roy and others in pivotal roles.
