Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Babumoshai Bandookbaaz has not grown on its 2nd day. This is surprising as its opening day collections were very good and it had actually exceeded the trade expectations but 2nd day has stayed flat.
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz collected approximately 2 crore on its 1st Saturday, making its total around 4.05 crore. It will need to show some growth today to go past the 6 crore mark in its opening weekend.
However, Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’s economics is very favorable. Its budget is only 5 crore so recovery is not an issue. With Sunday’s collections, it will already be flying into the profitable zone.
Nawazuddin had shared the budget details with his fans on Twitter to clear the air.
Ppl r talking abt d budget of #BabumoshaiBandookbaaz, yes it’s a 5Cr film including P&A bt fr me it’s an art of cinema regardless of budget.

Reviews for Babumoshai Bandookbaaz are mixed but the reputation of Nawaz is finding the audience in theaters. Considering its low buzz, the numbers are decent although some growth on 2nd day would have been nice.
Nawazuddin plays the role of a contract killer in the movie. It also stars Bidita Bag and Jatin Goswami and it is directed by Kushan Nandy.
