It is a no secret that Bollywood is struggling these days. After Toilet Ek Prem Katha, things have again gone back to normal as it was followed by a big disaster A Gentleman. Now all eyes are on Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi starrer Baadshaho. It is an action thriller which has not been seen for quite some time.
As per the official announcement, the film is released in 2800 screens. The early trends are suggesting that it has taken a good opening.

Day Box Ofice Collection
The overall occupancy in the morning shows was up to 30% in all over India which is good. The opening is better in single screens, in fact, it has one of the best starts at single screens this year. It has opened best in Rajasthan due to the setting and local theme of the film. In multiplexes, the opening is average which was expected.
Overall the start is decent. Generally, action films do not show big growth in the evening but there is a holiday tomorrow which will boost Baadshaho collection. A film like Toilet Ek Prem Katha had a lower start but went on to do 13 crores on day 1 thanks to huge growth in the later half of the day. That might not be the case with Baadshaho though but still, a double digit number is expected at the very least.
The film is made on a medium budget of approx 75-80 crores including P&A. So a good box office run is required for recovering costs. But if it finds acceptance among masses then it will be enough even if plexes fare average. The other release Shubh Mangal Saavdhan has got a low opening of 10-15%. Considering the strong competition from Baadshaho, it is reasonable and the first day numbers are likely to be 2 crores plus. From the holdover releases, Annabelle Creation has the best hold.
According to the early trends, Baadshaho 1st day collection is likely to be in double digit figures. It has chances to go higher depending on the growth in the evening shows. Also, tell us what are your thoughts about Baadshaho day 1 box office collection update in the comments section.
