Airlift has collected around 12.35 crore nett on Friday (1st day) at box office and thus taken superb start. Collections are praiseworthy because of few factors. Friday was normal working day and Airlift had to clash with KKHH3 which is also getting wide release. Secondly, film genre was in niche zone and hence numbers are very good considering that factor. Although Akshay Kumar face value helped a lot in good opening. Now film needs to go big from here on with Republic Day Holiday still to come.
Airlift will now definitely look for a 35+ crore nett weekend and may be even closer to 40 crore nett mark. With Republic Day Holiday falling on 1st Tuesday film has now every chance of touching 70 crore nett or more in first week itself. There is no doubt this time that Airlift is a strong contender to push for 100 crore mark and even more after that. Overall good start.
