Tiger Shroff-starrer A Flying Jatt might be about a superhero but it failed to fly at the box office. The movie which also stars Jacqueline Fernandez was released on Thursday. It has so far collected around Rs 20.45 crore. It managed to earn Rs 6 crore on Friday. But showed improvement on Saturday as it collected Rs 7.35 crore. On Sunday, the collections were Rs 9 crore, bringing the total to Rs 29.45 crore.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “
#AFlyingJatt has underperformed, considering it was an extended 4-day weekend. Biz saw growth on Sat and Sun, but the big jump was missing. #AFlyingJatt Thu 7.10 cr, Fri 6 cr, Sat 7.35 cr, Sun 9 cr. Total: ₹ 29.45 cr. India biz. Note: #Baaghi collected ₹ 38.58 cr in 3 days.”
A Flying Jatt opened on the occasion of Janmashtami with a profit of Rs 7.10 crore. But so far the film has done low business. Made at an approximate budget of Rs 50 crore, the film seems like a failure at the box office. On Friday (August 26), the Tiger Shroff film made a collection of Rs 6 crore, which is even lower that its opening day profits.

A few days before the film’s release, Remo D’Souza, a man who wears multiple hats from acting, dancing, choreographing, directing and producing, in an exclusive tete-a-tete with indianexpress.com, mentioned about the film’s plot saying, “It’s the story of a simple superhero who is young and human. He derives the superpowers accidentally. There is also a strong mother-son bond that we have showcased in the film. There is also a message about global warming and protecting our environment that we have touched upon through the film.”
Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta wrote in the review, “The first half of A Flying Jatt is not afraid to be silly and is very enjoyable.Tiger Shroff plays a martial arts teacher in a school where he strives lamely to catch his students’ eye, as well as a pretty colleague whom we know is interested in the environment because she clutches a couple of books on the subject to her bosom. No one ever goes to class: it is that kind of film.”
“The second half goes south. The film starts getting preachy and heavy. A bad guy who fattens on garbage and waste is a great stroke, but to keep belabouring the point is pointless,” she added.
We hope Tiger Shroff’s superhero powers can bring any luck to make the film’s collections in the coming days.
