Bejoy Nambiar's latest offering, Wazir, Amitabh Bachchan-Farhan Akhtar's Wazir had a good start at the Box-Office. The film raked in Rs 5.57 crore on its opening day - impressive figures considering the niche genre and the release period.

The film witnessed an upward trend in collections on the second day - Saturday - where in it collected around Rs 7.50 crore. Being a film mainly appealing towards the multiplexes, a jump on the second day was expected.

The film is performing well at the metros, especially high-end multiplexes, and a further jump in collections is expected today.

Day wise collections:

  • Day One (8 January) - Rs 5.57 crore
  • Day Two (9 January) - Rs 7.16 crore
  • Total - Rs 12.91 crore

Going by this trend, Wazir might cement its place as the first successful Bollywood film of 2016. Catch had predicted that film would record opening collections of Rs 4 crore, and rake in Rs 13 crore by Monday. However, Wazir has managed to exceed our expectations.
