‘Selfiee’ marks the first collaboration between Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi together on the big screens. It is a remake of the 2019 critical and commercial success Malayalam comedy-drama ‘Driving License’.

Selfiee Release Date
‘Selfiee’ has been released in cinemas on 24 February 2023. The release date was announced by Akshay Kumar via social media, earlier.
The actor shared a colourful still featuring himself which garnered the attention of netizens. The actor was last seen in the movie Ram Setu, which was considered an average film.
Selfiee Advance Bookings
The limited advance bookings of the film were opened on Tue, Feb 21 whereas the full-fledged bookings commenced on Wed, less than two days from its release.
‘Selfiee’ earned 85-90L from the pre-bookings which was very low considering the face value of Akshay Kumar. Had the bookings been opened a few days earlier things would have been much better.
Selfiee Box Office Collection
After the dull response in bookings, the film saw a disastrous opening at the box office. It collects Rs 2.55 Cr on its first day which is one of the lowest openings for a film that has stars like Akshay and Emraan.
Akshay Kumar badly needed a hit film to end his box office drought as his past four films couldn’t bring the audience to the cinemas. Now, going by the box office performance, it seems Selfiee will continue the flop trend for Akshay.
