'PM Narendra Modi', a biopic on Modi starring Vivek Oberoi in the title role, opened to lukewarm response on Friday, reported trade analyst Taran Adarsh. The Omung Kumar-directed film made Rs.2.88 crore, which is better than the opening day numbers of Arjun Kapoor's India's Most Wanted but significantly lower than the collection of Hollywood filmAladdin. Taran Adarsh tweeted: "Narendra Modi had a lukewarm start in the morning but picked up speed as day 1 progressed... Evening shows witnessed better occupancy... Friday India business is Rs. 2.88 crore." 

'PM Narendra Modi' opened in cinemas a day after Narendra Modi-led Bhartiya Janta Party (or the BJP) and its allies won a spectacular mandate of over 350 seats in the 543-member Lok Sabha.

In separate tweets, Taran Adarsh shared the opening day box office collection of Aladdinand India's Most Wanted, both of which opened on Friday. Arjun Kapoor's film, directed by Raj Kumar Gupta, collected Rs. 2.10 crore while Aladdin was ahead with Rs. 4.25 crore in its pocket.

 'PM Narendra Modi' maps the rise and rise of Narendra Modi in Indian politics. The film shows Narendra Modi's journey from his early days in the RSS to his rise as the chief minister of Gujarat and finally as the Prime Minister of India.
