Rajkummar Rao’s ‘Mr and Mrs Mahi’ opened in theatres on May 31 much to the delight of fans. The sports drama has garnered attention with its moving trailer and soulful songs. This helped it take a decent start at the box office, going by the initial estimates.

According to Ramesh Bala, a trade tracker, ‘Mr and Mrs Mahi’ will collect between Rs 2 crore and Rs 3 crore (nett) at the domestic box office on its first day.

“They are selling tickets at Rs 99 a piece on Friday (May 31) so even if they sell two to three lakh tickets, the collection will be on the lower side. The sales may get a boost but not the actual collection. So, I am expecting it to do between Rs 2 crore and Rs 3 crore on the first day,”he told The Daily Guardian.

If this is the case, the film will open in the same range as Rajkummar’s previous release Srikanth. The biographical drama netted Rs 2.41 crore at the box office on the first day.

‘Mr and Mrs Mahi’ hit screens alongside ‘SAVI’. The Abhinay Deo-helmed thriller has piqued the curiosity of fans with its riveting trailer. Ramesh Bala, however, feels the two films will not affect each other at the box office.

“Both movies will attract their own audience. Savi and Mr and Mrs Mahi are both small to medium-budget films and will not be in competition with each other. The audiences are different. Mr and Mrs Mahi is meant for Rajkummar fans,” said the tracker.

‘SAVI’ is a thriller, directed by Abhinay Deo of Delhi Belly fame. The film centres on a housewife who comes plans a daring jailbreak to rescue her husband. The film features Divya Khossla and Anil Kapoor in the lead. Mukesh Bhatt and Bhushan Kumar have produced the film.

Coming back to ‘Mr and Mrs Mahi’, it is a sports drama that centres on the relationship between a failed cricketer and his wife. It features Rajkummar Rao as Mahendra and Janhvi Kapoor as Mahima. The film is directed by Sharan Sharma.

‘Mr and Mrs Mahi’ opened in theatres on May 31.
