Sam Bahadur, a film directed by Meghna Gulzar and starring Vicky Kaushal, Sanya Malhotra, and Fatima Sana Shaikh, is based on the remarkable life of the great Indian Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. It opened to a decent Rs 5.50 crores nett at the Indian box office. Considering that Sam Bahadur is competing against a movie like Animal, which is a box office hit, these earnings are steady.

On its opening day, the film directed by Meghna Gulzar collected ₹5.50 crore in India. Sam Bahadur's Hindi version saw an overall occupancy of 29.18% on Friday, according to the box office tracking website. However, it's way less than Animal which made a business of ₹60 crore on Day 1. Both Animal and Sam Bahadur were released on December 1.

Over the course of the weekend, Sam Bahadur must show some significant growth to maintain its grip. Right now, the movie is aiming for a weekend gross of more than Rs 20 crores.

About Sam Bahadur

The life of the first Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw served as a basis for Sam Bahadur. In addition to Vicky portraying Sam Manekshaw, Sanya Malhotra plays his wife, and Fatima Sana Shaikh plays former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The movie has garnered a lot of praise and Vicky Kaushal received high praise for his performance.

Let's wait and watch how it manages to stay steady with Sandeep Reddy Vanga's Animal starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna and Bobby Deol.

Vicky Kaushal's box office performance

Talking about Vicky Kaushal's projects, he had a huge hit with Zara Hatke Zara Bachke and a complete bust with The Great Indian Family. Of his three films this year, Sam Bahadur's opening is the biggest. It remains to be seen if it can have the same kind of theatrical legs as Zara Hatke Zara Bachke.

Apart from this, the actor will also be seen in Shah Rukh Khan starrer Dunki, which is all set to release on December 22. The Rajkumar Hirani directorial film also stars Taapsee Pannu.
