Meanwhile, the collections for all formats, including languages other than Hindi, are more than RS-120 crore nett for the opening weekend. However, some celebrities, like Kangana Ranaut, and industry insiders have claimed that the Brahmastra box office figures are manipulated by the film's producers.
Brahmastra had recorded a great opening with collections coming in the range of around RS-35-36 crore despite it releasing on a non-holiday. Brahmastra Day 1 collections have reportedly beaten the opening day figures of Ranbir Kapoor's highest opening so far, Sanju, which had collected RS-34.75 crore on day 1 in 2018. As per the makers, Brahmastra had earned RS-160 crore in its first two days worldwide. Earlier, it was reported that with many shows going houseful, theatres in many major centres had now opened early morning and late night shows to keep up with the increased demands.
Recently, Alia Bhatt had shared a post by Ayan on Instagram, thanking all those who watched the film. Ayan's original post read, "Gratitude, excitement, hope! A big thank you to everyone, everywhere who has gone to the cinemas to experience Brahmastra, keeping our movie going culture vibrant and dynamic. Looking forward to the next few days."
