Box Office Collection Day 1
Aditya Roy Kapoor has proven his range over the years through the films like Aashiqui2, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Ludo and now embraces the action avatar in OM, going by the trailer, he has done the job with complete conviction.
The film caters to mass audiences, but the thing is, the actor has no mass appeal, and also the posters, trailer, and promotional events failed to create any buzz among the movie lovers. As per a box office India report, the film saw a opening of 5% which means it will see the opening figures ranging Rs 0.5 to 1 crores in India. The figures can improve over the weekend which will depend on word of mouth among the target audience.
