'Heropanti' has made a flying start with impressive weekend box office collections. According to trade expert Taran Adarsh, the movie made Rs 21.33 crore over the opening weekend.

"#Heropanti *revised* Fri Rs 6.63 cr, Sat 6.42 crore, Sun Rs 8.28 cr. Total: Rs 21.33 crore nett. India biz. Huge growth on Sunday," Adarsh tweeted.

"'Heropanti', starring Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon, is the recent example of a masala film that was written off by a section of the media, but the flying start and the impressive box office collections (for a film starring newcomers) clearly indicates that the audience has given it its thumbs up," Adarsh said.

The curiosity to watch a star-kid coupled with uncompromising promotion, attention-grabbing promos depicting Tiger's stunts and trendy soundtrack ensured a flying start for the film on Friday morning.

Also, Aamir Khan launching the first look and praising Tiger's abilities added to the curiosity. Consequently, the positive word of mouth translated into wonderful figures at the ticket window, Adarsh added.

'Heropanti' even posed stiff competition for the Rajinikanth starrer 'Kochadaiiyaan' (Hindi version) in the North circuits.
