The film had opened to Rs 1.75 crore on Friday, but gained pace with Rs 4.80 crore on the next day. With films like The Lunch Box, Hindi Medium and others under his kitty, Irrfan has made his own fan base across the country. Considering that content-driven cinema is the new age formula film in Bollywood, Qarib Qarib Singlle should do better in coming days.
It released alongside Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Kharbanda’s Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana, which is also having an average business at the box office. The film is expected to face competition from Vidya Balan’s Tumhari Sulu and Hollywood’s big ticket Justice League next week.
