WhileKesariearned Rs 21. 50 crore on the first day of its release on Holi,Mission Mangal (collected a massive Rs) . 16 crore on day one on Independence Day. Apart from the evening festivities, one of the reasons for a lower opening could be competition from Taapsee Pannnu-Bhumi Pednekar’sSaand Ki Aankhand Rakummar Rao-Mouni Roy’sMade in China. Down south, Vijay and director Atlee’sBigilproved to a competition forHousefull 4as well.
