Despite creating huge buzz before release, the movie had an average opening with the collection of 6.3 crores. After an ordinary opening, the movie failed to witness substantial growth and ends up with the first week collection of 29.7 crores.
Azhar First Week Box Office Collection | Day-Wise Update
Azhar 1st day collection: 6.3 crores (8th highest opening day of 2016)
Azhar 2nd day collection: 7 crores
Azhar 3rd day collection: 7.5 crores
Azhar first weekend collection: 20.8 crores
Azhar 4th day collection: 2.95 crores

Azhar 6th day collection: 2 crores
Azhar 7th day collection: 1.50 crores
Azhar first week collection: 29.7 crores
Azhar total 7 days collection: 29.7 crores
With the collection of 29.7 crores, Azhar is the 9th highest opening week grosser of 2016. Azhar performed well in small centers but it was metros and multiplexes which rejected the movie from the first day itself. The movie is now finding it difficult to even recover its budget of 40 crores.
Considering the current trend it seems that the movie will end its Box Office journey with the lifetime collection of around 35 crores. Another disappointment for Emraan Hashmi despite his superb performance. Azhar is Emraan Hashmi’s 8th consecutive flop in a row.
