Besharam, which broke the friday-norm and released on a Wednesday, grossed Rs. 21 crores on the first day. The film which was criticized by the critics, grossed that whopping amount. It is probably because of the fact that it is an absolute entertainer and it released on a Wednesday and thus, it didn’t have to compete with any other film. Besides that, it has Ranbir Kapoor as the lead hero; which was an added bonus to the film directed by Anurag Kashyap.
Being the biggest release in Bollywood ever, though the movie got negative reviews, the analysts say it will continue to rake in moolah in the coming days. Analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the region-wise collections of the movie.
