Sooraj and Athiya's debut film managed to remain steady on Saturday
Nikhil Advani's Hero starring Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty finally hit theatres on Friday. The film produced by Salman Khan opened well thanks to the actor and his promotions. Salman made sure he promoted the film really well with the actors and was present at most of the promotional events to back the débutantes.
With these efforts, Hero began on an impressive note on Friday and raked in Rs 6.85 crore. The though did not jump on day 2, managed to remain steady and made Rs 6.62 crore. A while ago trade analyst Taran Adarsh announced the box office collection of the Salman Khan production and wrote, "#Hero biz doesn't witness growth on Sat. However, Sun should witness an escalation in biz. Fri 6.85 cr, Sat 6.62 cr. Total: Rs 13.47 cr."
The Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor is quite thrilled the way the film is performing at the box office. He took to Twitter and wrote, "“Thanks to the people who hv gone to see Hero n welcomed suraj n athiya in the film world n all those who r going to see it .
