This was one of those Fridays when Bollywood and Hollywood were pitted against each other at the domestic box office, with Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee's 'Aiyaary' releasing alongside Marvel's first black standalone superhero flick 'Black Panther.'
As it happened, 'Black Panther' fetched better numbers on Day 1 upsetting the Neeraj Pandey film.
#Aiyaary has a DULL Day 1... Opening day biz is lower than Sidharth Malhotra’s last two films: #AGentleman [₹ 4.04 cr] and #Ittefaq [₹ 4.05 cr]… Evening/night shows were slightly better... Sat and Sun biz is extremely crucial... Fri ₹ 3.36 cr. India biz.
