The year 2022 is quite tricky and tough for the versatile actor Ayushmann Khurrana. His movies like Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, Anek, Doctor G, and now, An Action Hero, didn’t perform up to the mark at the box office. With great talent, acting, and positive word of mouth, the film fails to create magic at cinemas.
With different projects, and good promotional strategies An Action Hero did a smooth entry at the box office. This movie is special for Ayushmann Khurrana as he said, it’s a genre-breaking film for him.
The makers of the film had tried to include different tactics to reach its audiences, like the cameo surprise of Akshay Kumar, who unveils his next project, also including Nora Fatehi in a dance number.
As per a report in Box Office India, there is a definite change in audiences’ footfalls in cinemas post the pandemic. Now, there is a larger audience venturing out over the weekend, which can be seen by the BO numbers in the last few months.
The film performed low in its first 3 days earning a total count of Rs 5.99 Crores. Monday is a crucial day of weekdays; therefore, it needs to perform miraculously well in the coming days.
As per the previous day's report, it is estimated to earn Rs 1. 15 Crores at the box office.
If An Action Hero fails to pick up the pace, it would be Ayushmann’s fifth dud at the box office after Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, Anek, and Doctor G.
