Mumbai: Actor Sidharth Malhotra, whose latest film “Brothers” amassed Rs.52.08 crore in its opening weekend in India, is content with the business of the movie.
“Collection is an indication that people are watching your film and they want to see your film. If the collection increases, it encourages actors to perform even better,” said Sidharth, who paid a surprise visit to a theatre here to watch fans’ reactions to the movie.
The Karan Malhotra directorial has become the second double digit opening film for Sidharth. It had raked in Rs.15.20 crore on day one. His last year’s film “Ek Villain” had a massive opening of Rs.16.72 crore.
Karan Malhotra, who accompanied Sidharth to the theatre, shared that he was scared before the film’s release on August 14.
“We worked really hard for ‘Brothers’. We were very tensed from the past two to three days thinking about how our film would perform. We are really happy to see the response and it’s a big relief for the whole team,” said Karan.
The action-packed family drama also stars Akshay Kumar, Jacqueline Fernandez and Jackie Shroff.
