Box Office Report: Janhvi Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Varun Sharma's Roohi springs up a surprise on Day 1


Janhvi Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao and Varun Sharma's Roohi became Bollywood's first big-budget film to release in theatres amid the COVID-19 pandemic. With the government permitting 100% occupancy, things are gradually normalising. The horror-comedy opened to positive reviews. 

Roohi released on Thursday and on the first day at the box office, the horror-comedy collected Rs. 3.06 crores. The film took a rather good start as COVID-19 cases are on a rise once again. Roohi got an additional advantage due to the Maha Shivratri holiday. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#Roohi springs a pleasant surprise on Day 1, despite #Covid pandemic... #MahaShivratri holiday proves advantageous... National multiplexes contribute maximum [approx 1.89 cr], while Tier-2 cities show decent footfalls... Thu 3.06 cr. #India biz"
