John Abraham, Diana Penty and Boman Irani starrer 'Parmanu - The story of Pokhran' started slow on its first day but caught some serious pace on the second day probably due to its word of mouth publicity and raving reviews from critics.
The film earned Rs 4.82 crore on its opening day on Friday, went on to earn Rs 7.64 crore on Saturday. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the actual figures that read, "Solid word of mouth catches up... SUPERB 58.51% growth for #Parmanu on Day 2... Biz is likely to be affected today [evening onwards] due to IPL finals... A strong hold on Mon could make up for revenue loss... Fri 4.82 cr, Sat 7.64 cr. Total: ₹ 12.46 cr [1935 screens]. India biz."
Bankrolled by JA Entertainment, Zee Studios and Kyta Productions the film is distributed all over India by Vashu Bhagnani's Pooja Entertainment. Talking about the film, John on Friday said, ''Nothing could make me happier today than the validation of our efforts to celebrate our unsung heroes by our audience across India! I have been getting so many calls from our distributors and exhibitors and I’m thankful to each one of them for their unstinted support and for standing by and loving this labour of love.''
Although following the IPL Finale on Sunday, the film might have suffered a bit.
