Khichdi 2 - Mission Paanthukistan is facing tough competition at the box office from the Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and Emraan Hashmi starrer Tiger 3.
The adventure comedy Khichdi 2, directed by Aatish Kapadia and a follow-up to Khichdi: The Movie (2010), has hit the theaters. Despite being strategically released in stages, the ensemble comedy is opening at the domestic box office at ₹1.1 crore, according to a press release from the film's producers, JD Majethia's Hats Off Productions.
Even without any well-known stars in the ensemble, Khichdi 2 managed to earn slightly more than ₹1 crore on its opening day, November 17.
It is to be noted that Khichdi 2 is facing tough competition at the box office with Salman Khan's Tiger 3, which was released on the occasion of Diwali, on November 12.
Tiger 3 box office collection
Just five days have passed since the massive release of Maneesh Sharma's blockbuster spy thriller Tiger 3, starring Emraan Hashmi, Salman Khan, and Katrina Kaif. The movie is about to enter the ₹200 crore mark at the box office in India, whereas, internationally the film has already crossed the ₹300 crore mark. Tiger 3, which was released on Diwali, has unavoidably taken over most of the screens in the nation.

Khichdi 2 review
OTTplay's review for the film read: "None of us ever wanted the Khichdi world to evolve or update with time. It is our bubble that needs to be in its own time period, regardless of where the world outside it is going. Khichdi 2, due to the stretched canvas and a storyline that is not simple, looks overburdened for most of its runtime."
