Vidhu Vinod Chopra's latest directorial Shikara, based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley in 1990, had a decent collection on its opening day. The film made Rs 1.2o crore at the box office.

According to leading trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film was released at multiplexes primarily, and there was a significant increase in footfalls post noon. It needs to perform well during the weekend to amass a respectable opening weekend total.

The other release of the week, Mohit Suri's Malang, fared better at the ticketing counters. The suspense thriller, starring Aditya Roy Kapur, Disha Patani, and Anil Kapoor, made Rs 6.71 crore. It is Aditya's highest-opening film ever, followed by his first solo-hero venture, Aashiqui 2 (2013), which earned Rs 6.25 crore on its first day. Despite its significantly larger revenue, trade analysts state the film should have pulled more audiences to theatres owing to its genre. Check out Malang's opening day collections here

The release of Shikara and Malang has affected the ticket sales of Jawaani Jaaneman, which hit theatres last week. Trade analysts have said that the coming-of-age comedy, starring Saif Ali Khan, Alaya F and Tabu, saw a reduction in screens and shows. The current total of Jawaani Jaaneman stands at Rs 21.25 crore. On the other hand, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, is still continuing to trend in theatres, with a whopping Rs 260.67 crore in his kitty.

Here are the box office figures of Jawaani Jaaneman and Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior.
