If the film fraternity rooted for Tiger, the son of Bollywood's once reigning star Jackie Shroff, the audiences too have expressed their fondness for the young actor by helping his debut film Heropanti collect over Rs.13 crore in barely two days.
"Heropanti (earned) Rs.13.05 crore nett. India business. Business expected to jump today (Sunday)," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
Directed by Sabbir Khan, the movie opened May 23 alongside superstar Rajinikanth-starrer Kochadaiiyaan, which also features Jackie.
Presented by UTV Motion Pictures and Nadiadwala Grandsons Entertainment Pvt. Ltd., and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, the movie also launched Kriti Sanon as the film's leading lady.
The team had gone on a multi-city tour to promote the romantic actioner.
It was also highly recommended by celebrities like Subhash Ghai, Shilpa Shetty and Manisha Koirala.
