Shivaay has collected 11.05 crores on Tuesday taking its 5 days total to 56.96 crores and with this, the film has managed to stay above the 10 crore mark for four out of five days since its release. The only day it dipped below this was on Sunday, which was understandable due to the Diwali day. However, the fact that it is continuing to mint moolah even on its fifth day pretty much conveys that amongst its target audience, the Ajay Devgn film is doing pretty well.
Of course, a lot also has to be attributed to the fact that Tuesday too was a partial holiday. However that does get negated to some extent by the fact that this is now mid-week. Also, pirated copies of the film are spread out by this time, due to which collections usually take a dip.
Still, audiences are interested to watch the film on the big screen and that only belies the backlash that it had received from critics on its release. It is apparent all over again that if audiences have to watch a film, they would eventually do regardless of what online medium has to say.
Ditto for rejecting a film as well even if industry testimonials are glowing to the sky!
