Aamir Khan’s Talaash box office: Expected to earn Rs 15 crore on opening day

From rave reviews to overwhelming footfalls, Aamir Khan’s Talaash hit the bull’s eye even though it did not release on a festival day

Despite the fact that the suspense film has come out during non-festive season, the movie has been going housefull. Trade pundits predict that the film is likely to collect Rs 15 crores on its opening day itself. Usually, Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan choose to release their films during holiday season in a bid to attract more audiences, however, Aamir Khan defied the norm by releasing Talaash during a non-festive weekend.

If trade pundits are to be believed, the film is likely to rake the moolah at the Indian box office on the very first day. The weekend collections will be equally good. The suspense thriller, starring Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor, is expected to beat the opening collections of Raaz (Rs 10.50 crore), Bol Bachchan (Rs 11.75 crore), Cocktail (Rs 10.75 crore), Raajneeti (Rs 10.50 crore), Barfi! (Rs 8.5 crore) – which too released on a non-holiday Friday.
