The film is Ranveer’s biggest opener of his career ever and the film is expected to grow higher in the coming New Year weekend.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh earlier tweeted about box office figures of ‘Simmba’. He tweeted, “#Simmba gathered momentum during the course of the day, with evening/night shows supporting the film... Mumbai circuit is rocking... Emerges Ranveer Singh’s biggest opening day... Day 2 performing better than Day 1... Fri ? 20.72 cr. India biz.”

Film exhibitor Akshaye Rathi is optimistic that ‘Simmba’ will cross Rs 100 crore mark in the coming three, four days. When asked about the chances of ‘Simmba’ beating ‘Chennai Express’. He had said, “Definitely, I totally think it can be possible.”

Talking about the film’s box office records, he said, “Simmba looks like a sure blockbuster. It has everything working in its favour right from the set up, the cast, the director and the music. It’s the film that will surely work wonders at the box office especially with the masses. Simmba is Rohit Shetty’s work who has got his content right more often than not. His content appeals to very wide audience and entertains people by and large. Simmba looks like a film that should be able to achieve that again.”

Trusting Rohit’s style of filmmaking, he had added, “This movie is not about Ranveer or Sara. It is about Rohit Shetty as a director and a storyteller. Ranveer has the potential and his last film Padmaavat collected Rs 300 crore at the domestic box office. His intrinsic value is terrific as a star. Rohit catapulating him in a movie and utilising his stardom can go a long way. It can be a blockbuster in the long run.”
