Varun Dhawan-starrer Main Tera Hero warded off strong competition from cricket to notch for itself a decent enough opening weekend.
The film, starring Ileana D'Cruz and Nargis Fakhri, opened slightly on the lower side on Friday with Rs. 6.60 crore net (India business only). Collections witnessed a 21 percent rise on Saturday. Sunday turned out still better despite the final cricket match of T20 World Cup between India and Sri Lanka.
The opening weekend break-up of 'Main Tera Hero' is thus.
The response to the film has been particularly good in the mass belt areas. Since close to Rs. 40 crore is riding on 'Main Tera Hero' (including production and promotion costs), one expects the movie to breakeven by the end of its first week or second weekend.
Meanwhile, the other release Jal fared poorly in its opening weekend.
Kangana Ranaut’s Queen has emerged a HIT with Rs. 58 crore business till Saturday.
