INDIA: On the first day of its release, Ek Villain Returns had a mediocre box office performance. The box office for the feature is exactly what the trade expert expected. On its debut day, the action-thriller earned approximately ₹ 6-7 crores.

The feature served as the sequel to the 2014 hit film Ek Villain

The action-thriller film is a spiritual sequel to the 2014 successful film Ek Villain. Except for a few references to Riteish Deshmukh’s character, the sequel has no resemblance to the original film.

Trade expert Sumit Kadel unveiled the info on the box office collection of the film. He tweeted, “As expected, #EkVillainReturns is doing good amongst the masses … the film is registering solid occupancy in single screens in B & C centres… Opening day figure would be in the range of 6-7 cr nett & if night shows goes strong then even 8 cr is a possibility…”

Indian film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#EkVillainReturns reaps the benefit of franchise factor, opens better at single screens of mass pockets and Tier-2 centres… Metros – especially national chains – need to gather momentum… Day 2 and 3 crucial… Fri ₹ 7.05 cr. #India biz.”
