‘Sardaar Gabbar Singh’ opens well, but struggles to sustain

Chennai, April 10 (IANS) Pawan Kalyan-starrer Telugu actioner “Sardaar Gabbar Singh” raked in over Rs.30 crore on release day worldwide. However, the numbers have dropped on the second day across most locations, according to a trade expert.

“The film managed to collect Rs.31 crore on its first day worldwide. It’s a phenomenal start, but the numbers dropped across major locations on Saturday, following the very bad initial response from fans and critics alike,” trade analyst Trinath told IANS.

Since the opening weekend is crucial for most big releases, Trinath feels it’s really important the numbers for “Sardaar Gabbar Singh” don’t drop further.

“The numbers have dropped drastically in several overseas locations. While the Thursday premieres registered record opening, the numbers on Friday and Saturday don’t look good and that’s a bad sign for the movie,” he said.

Directed by K.S. Ravindra, the film also stars Kajal Aggarwal, Sharad Kelkar and Kabir Duhan Singh in important roles.
