The world is currently witnessing the best of Katrina Kaif on the big screen as "Merry Christmas" is now in theaters and enjoyed its second day yesterday. While the first day had a slow start, and the need for stronger word-of-mouth was evident and still is, it turns out the Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi starrer is showing a positive climb on the box office trajectory. The second day of the movie, as per early estimates, has turned out to be very interesting, with close to a 40 percent growth in numbers.

Merry Christmas Box Office Day 2:

The first day of "Merry Christmas" at the domestic box office was a bit underwhelming, with the numbers, including Hindi and other languages, at Rs 2.55 crore. However, the second day brought a breather for the movie, which boasts a great story and top-notch execution. It feels like "Merry Christmas" is growing at a good speed at the domestic box office. It has now managed to earn close to half the numbers of the previous day.

The film earned around Rs 3.50 crore on the second day at the domestic box office, according to Sacnilk, an industry tracker that monitors the box office aspects of films and provides an idea of how the movie is performing. It is said that the movie has seen a 37 percent growth in numbers, and it is certainly not a bad start, progressing well.

The total earnings of "Merry Christmas" now stand at Rs 6.05 crore. However, the movie still needs good word-of-mouth and wider audience promotion to finally achieve big numbers in the coming days. There will be commendable growth today, considering it's a Sunday, and the audience that watched it yesterday will pull in some crowd to the cinema halls, adding numbers to those already planning to watch.

About "Merry Christmas":

Starring Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi in the lead, "Merry Christmas" is directed by the maverick filmmaker Sriram Raghavan, who tells the story of a night when two strangers meet, and a bond is formed. Soon, we realize that there is a dark mystery lying right in the center of this world, and thus begins the top-notch Raghavan thriller.


The movie has been receiving great reviews for its storyline, execution, and acting performances. Many have called this Katrina Kaif’s career-best performance, which says a lot about the content that is served. "Merry Christmas" was released on January 12, 2024, and is currently in theaters.
