First Day Collections: Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji Is Performing Better Than Deepika’s Chhapaak At The Box-Office


On 10th January, two of the most awaited movies – Chhapaak and Tanha Ji: The Unsung Warrior hit the theatres. The opening day collection of the movie is out and the results are quite surprising.

Chhapaak, the movie starring super talented Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey in lead roles has received a mild response from the moviegoers. The movie revolves around a very serious topic of acid attacks. It is based on the life of an acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, who is being portrayed by Deepika Padukone in the movie.

Taran Adarsh, film critic and trade analyst, took to his Twitter and shared the box office collection of the film on his Twitter account.

Though the movie has collected a good amount at the high-end multiplexes but the movie has been receiving mild responses from the fans. Deepika Padukone starrer ‘Chhapaak’ has minted 4.77 crores on its opening day. Sharing the opening day collection, Taran Adarsh wrote:

On the other hand, Ajay Devgn and Kajol starrer Tanha Ji: The Unsung Warrior, is based on the life Tanaji Malusare, the unsung warrior who fought alongside Chatrapati Shivaji against the Mughals. The movie is set in the 17th century. Kajol and Ajay Devgn have united for a movie after a long time.

As per Taran Adarsh, the movie has been exceeding expectations and is earning some great amount of money at the Box-office. On an opening day, Tanha Ji: The Unsung Warrior minted  15.1 crores.
