On its fourth day at the box office, Shehzada is estimated to have collected in the range of Rs 2-3 crore. This is half of what it earned on Sunday, February 19. It is quite worrying for the film as it could end up as a huge disappointment at the box office.
The total collection of Shehzada now stands in the range of Rs 22 to 23 crore in India.
Shehzada, which is bankrolled by Kartik Aaryan, Bhushan Kumar, Allu Arvind, and Aman Gill, has music by Pritam. Shehzada marks the return of Kartik Aaryan to the big screen after Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, directed by Anees Bazmee, which emerged as a blockbuster. Shehzada is directed by Rohit Dhawan and co-produced by T-Series Films, Haarika & Hassine Creations, Geetha Arts and Brat Films.
