Ek Villian box office collection: Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor’s romantic thriller fares well on Saturday

The exact figures will come in shortly but we hear Mohit Suri’s directorial venture did well on day 2 as well

Sidharth Malhotra, Shaddha Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh starrer Ek Villain is going rock steady at the box office. On Friday the film literally created dhoom at the ticket windows and ended up raking in Rs 16.72 crore nett. Saturday was equally good for the romantic thriller. In fact, Suri’s film is likely to surpass the Rs 50 crore by the end of the first weekend. Film critic and Trade analyst Taran Adarsh posted on Twitter, “#EkVillain had a SOLID Sat. Early trends indicate ₹ 15 cr [+/-]… ₹ 50 cr nett weekend on the cards… FANTABULOUS!” That’s not all! The Sidharth-Shraddha starrer has managed to impress the masses oversees as well. Adarsh wrote on the popular social networking site, “#EkVillain Thu + Fri Overseas total: approx $ 1 mn [₹ 6 cr]. VERY GOOD!.”

While Sid celebrated the success of his film last night with Salman Khan, his Kick co-star Jacqueline Fernandez and Karan Johar, we are pretty sure the party has just started from the whole Ek Villain team.
