Animal Box Office collection Day 1: Ranbir Kapoor-starrer ‘Animal’ has hit the big screens today, December 1. The movie has caught the attention of netizens and amassed huge numbers in advance booking, beating Vicky Kaushal's ‘Sam Bahadur’s' numbers by a big margin that is also set to release in theatres today.

The advance bookings for the T-Series, Cine1 Studios and Bhadrakali Pictures production film in India began on November 26. The film is expected to earn 60 crore on its opening day, according to reports from industry tracker Sacnilk.

The Central Board of Film Certification awarded Animal an 'A' rating which implies it covers the 18+ age group. The film has an approved runtime of 3 hours and 21 minutes, making it one of the longest Indian films ever.

Film trade analyst Sumit Kadel in a post on X stated, “If #Animal is Met with Positive response then it will have a EARTH SHATTERING 170 cr + nett 3 Days Weekend at the domestic box office."

 

The film is in the race to become the third Bollywood movie to open with a collection of at least 100 crores gross at the worldwide box office, as indicated by Sacnilk's advance booking trend data. The advance booking of "Animal" is putting in great competition with Shah Rukh Khan's "Pathaan" which opened to 68 crore gross in India. 

Animal is expected to gross around 100 -115 crore worldwide on the first day while SRK's Pathaan and Jawan minted 105 crore and 129 crore respectively on their release day.

On its opening day, Animal is expected to mint 50-60 crore gross in the Hindi version and is likely to record at least Rs10 crore gross in the dubbed Telugu version. Sacnilk further projected overall domestic opening to be at least 65 crore gross.
