'Super 30' crosses Rs 50 cr-mark during weekend; film performs far better than Hrithik Roshan's 'Kaabil'
The Vikas Bahl-directorial recorded the best Sunday performance at the box office.
While the film opened to mixed reviews, the fans were quick to appreciate the remarkable performances during its opening weekend. Box Office India website confirmed that 'Super 30' recorded the best Sunday performance at the box office amongst all the films currently playing in theatres.
Movie critic Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to confirm the news. He also wrote, in his post, the Vikas Bahl-directorial is 'trending is far, far better than Roshan's last two films - 'Mohenjo Daro' and 'Kaabil'.

According to Box Office India, the movie's growth on Sunday was limited but that was the case with all the other films playing, probably because of the much-hyped England vs New Zealand World Cup final as well as the 2019 Wimbledon final. The film has been performing very well down South in the Andhra and Mysore region. These regions alone raked in Rs. 3 crore making it the best film in these two circuits after Salman Khan's 'Bharat' and Shahid Kapoor-starrer 'Kabir Singh' for the first weekend.
'Super 30' chronicles the life story of Anand Kumar (Hrithik), an Indian mathematician journey from tutoring rich children in a top coaching centre to opening an institute of his own in order to teach the underprivileged children.
Produced by Reliance Entertainment and Phantom Films, the film also stars Mrunal Thakur, Amit Sadh, and Nandish Sandhu in pivotal roles.
'Super 30' underwent a couple of changes in its release date with Hrithik trying to avoid a clash with Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao-starrer 'Judgementall Hai Kya' at the box office.
