When pre-booking opened for Crew, it became quite obvious that the film would have an opening of at least Rs. 6 crores. However, within a couple of days, Rs. 7 crores were made and then a few more numbers appeared on the cards. However, no one expected that collections would end up reaching double digits. After all, the promotion of the film had started just a month ago and although it seemed like a good product on offer, due to its multiplex appeal, expectations were reserved.

Well, it turned out that crowds turned out in good numbers for the movie and bets were made on how much bigger it will end up being. The afternoon and evening shows were quite strong for the film, especially in Delhi NCR, which was also driven by the female audience, and that was what took the first day's score to Rs. 10.28 crores. That's really impressive because the collections are now the third best of the year after Fighter and Shaitaan, which is saying a lot.

Although yesterday was a partial Holi holiday, the film will continue to grow today due to its entertaining content. The film is being liked and word of mouth is very positive, which means that a double-digit score is expected today and then a great Sunday ahead. There's some serious competition ahead in the form of Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire; Otherwise, the Tabu, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Kriti Sanon starrer would have aimed for an even higher score.

Note: All collections according to production and distribution sources.
