Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted: "Aladdin dominates, maintains a strong lead on Day 2... Faring much, much better than Hindi releases, but it can do with higher numbers thanks to the merits and genre... Friday 4.25 crore, Saturday 6.50 crore. Total: Rs 10.75 crore net box office collection. India business. Gross box office collection: Rs 12.80 crore. All versions." Aladdin is a live-action adaptation of Disney's 1992 animated film of the same name.
Aladdin, which is directed by Guy Ritchie, is Disney's latest trip to India's box office. It features Will Smith as Ginie, Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine of Agrabah.
