Shehzada box office trends: Trade experts predict weak ₹6 crore opening for Kartik Aaryan film

The expectations were high for Kartik Aaryan-starrer Shehzada which opens on Friday. The actor's last theatrical release, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, had earned ₹14.11 crore on day one and eventually became a hit. The sequel, directed by Anees Bazmee, went on to make over ₹260 crore at the worldwide box office. However, with his latest, the opening is not as high as the film traders might have hoped. The current estimates show that the Hindi film is on track to earn around ₹6-7 crore on its first day.
