Qarib Qarib Singlle grossed 1.65-1.75 crore nett apprx on day one which is a low collection but keeps the film in with a chance if it can show big growth on Saturday and Sunday. The collections are lower than recent Irrfan Khan films like Hindi Medium and Talwar which collected 2.50 crore nett while Madaari collected nearly 2 crore nett. The film has its best collections in Delhi NCR followed by Mumbai and Pune. Its another film which will only have chances in five cities and if these work it will be enough due to low costs but the question is can it even work in these five metros.
Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana is a poor fare as it collected around 60-65 lakhs nett which makes it near impossible for the film. Basically it has to at least double up on Saturday to have just have a chance on the weekdays. The film is also best in Delhi NCR but whereas Qarib Qarib Singlle has some audience in a Mumbai and Pune here it is very minimal. Newton which had the same actor showed Saturday growth which was around 200% and that will do the job for this film as well but that came because of a well timed Oscar nomination and here there is no such thing.
The other releases this week Maheruh, Safe, and The House Next Door could not register at the box office at all.
