'Simmba' was released on an estimated 4,020 screens in India. Among the recent action-comedies that have posted opening figures in the same ballpark is the Varun Dhawan-starrer 'Judwaa 2' (2017) – $2.2 million on the opening day. With no major Hindi releases all the way until January 11, 'Simmba' has the next two weeks to itself

Rohit Shetty’s latest movie “Simmba” has posted $3 million on its opening day, trade sources said. The December 28 release, an official remake of the Telugu hit “Temper,” stars Ranveer Singh as a corrupt police inspector who has a change of heart and goes after a pair of rapists. Sonu Sood plays the villain, while Sara Ali Khan plays Simmba’s girlfriend.

“Simmba” was released on an estimated 4,020 screens in India. Among the recent action-comedies that have posted opening figures in the same ballpark is the Varun Dhawan-starrer “Judwaa 2” (2017) – $2.2 million on the opening day. With no major Hindi releases all the way until January 11, “Simmba” has the next two weeks to itself.

The December 21 release “Zero,” directed by Aanand L Rai and starring Shah Rukh Khan as a dwarf, has made $1 million in its second week – far lower than expected for both director and lead actor. The dubbed Kannada film “KGF,” which had a limited release in northern territories, earned an estimated $3 million in its second week. “Kedarnath,” directed by Abhishek Kapoor and starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan, reached a little over $9 million in its fourth week.
