New Delhi: 

Highlights

  1. The initial response that I got has been really positive: Akshaye
  2. Ittefaq collected Rs 4.05 crore on opening day
  3. Thor: Ragnarok collected more than Ittefaq on Day 1
Trade analysts believe that Akshaye Khanna's new film Ittefaq 'started slow' at the box office but the actor says it is "too early to analyze it." He told news agency IANS: "It is too early to analyse the box-office or the film, it just released yesterday (Friday) but the initial response that I got has been really positive. So we will analyze it later but right now it is extremely positive." Ittefaq's opening day collection was Rs 4.05 crore  - quite less than Hollywood film Thor: Ragnarok (Rs 9.91 crore), which released simultaneously. Ittefaq is a remake Rajesh Khanna's 1969 film of the same name. The film also stars Sonakshi Sinha and Sidharth Malhotra.

Here is the box office collection report of both films:
 
 

Ittefaq is jointly produced by Shah Rukh khan's Red Chillies Entertainment, Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and BR Studios - the makers of the original film. Of the amity between the three production giants, Akshaye said: "Sometimes there are fights, but in this film, nothing like that happened. Everything just went smoothly. Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar are good friends, but they have an amazing relationship with BR Studios and everyone is happy," reports IANS. Ittefaq is directed by Abhay Chopra, grandson of BR Chopra.

Akshye Khanna took a sabbatical from films recently and returned with 2016's Dishoom, starring Varun Dhawan and John Abraham. Earlier this year, he was seen in MOM, co-starring Sridevi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. "I will do more films now. I will make the announcement soon," said Akshaye Khanna.
