On the other hand, Vivek Oberoi starrer PM Narendra Modi biopic that was supposed to release in April was banned by the Election Commission as the organization felt the film obstructs ‘the level playing ground’ of the parties during election campaigning and subsequent elections. Now, the film finally released yesterday and apparently has taken a decent start.

PM Narendra Modi biopic garnered Rs 2.88 crore on Day 1 and as the day progressed the film witnessed better occupancy. The film is expected to do good business at the box office. The film is based on the life of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Meanwhile, Ajay Devgn, Rakul Preet and Tabu starrer De De Pyaar De has maintained its run at the theatres despite the new releases. The film completed its first-week run and has become the audience’s favoured choice. It has garnered a cool Rs 64.63 crores till now and looks to continue its run in the second week as well.
