The first-day collection of Brahmastra: Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Alia Bhatt’s Brahmastra opened a record at the Indian box office. As per initial estimates, the movie collected between Rs. 36.50 to 38.50 crore on its opening day for the biggest non-holiday opening ever for a Hindi film (all versions). Brahmastra beat the opening day collections of pre-pandemic blockbusters like Sanju, Tiger Zinda Hai, and Dhoom 3.
Trade analysts predicted that the mega-budgeted film could earn ₹ 35–40 crore on its first day, while the 2018 release Sanju earned ₹ 34.50 crores on its first day.

The film is all set to reach ₹ 35 crores on Day 1, trade expert Sumit Kadel tweeted. Also, exhibitors in Delhi and Mumbai say the figure could easily be closer to ₹ 40 crores.
As reported by BoxOfficeIndia.com, Brahmastra showed 40-50% occupancy for its morning slots, which is the highest for any Hindi film since the pandemic but just below Sanju’s level.
However, trade analysts say, Brahmastra may show growth in the second half of the day. Film trade analyst Atul Mohan said, “Ganapati Bisarjan was difficult to release as the entire Mumbai and most parts of Maharashtra are virtually shut down for the first half of the festival day. It’s not a day when people go to the movies, at least not until lunch. So the numbers should be increased for the evening event.”

the Brahmastra gained wide circulation in the southern states with a great buzz. Moreover, personalities Nagarjuna, SS Rajamouli, and Jr. NTR’s involvement in the film created a stir in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The Telugu dubbed version of the film has already collected over ₹ 3 crores in advance bookings.
Trade analyst Ramesh Bala said, as quoted by HT, “In the south, Hindi films do not open very strongly but grow through word of mouth. That means Brahmastra could register stronger numbers on Saturday and Sunday.”
It stars Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Mouni Roy, and Nagarjuna Akkineni.
