John Abraham starrer Attack hasn’t taken a promising start at the box office in the Indian market, collecting a mere ₹3.5 nett on day 1, which is less than half of what the makers would’ve hoped for. Of course, there’s the RRR juggernaut to deal with, but reports suggest that the urban-centric flavour of the John Abraham action movie hasn’t found an immediate connect with the masses as action films in Bollywood, even those of John, need to work in the mass pockets to do well from the onset.

On the other hand, Attack appeals more to the multiplex audience, but they, too, have the option of RRR besides the this week’s Hollywood release, Morbius. So, the John Abraham-headlined, futuristic action film was slightly slow out of the gate and needed a massive boost on both days 2 and 3 ergo Saturday and Sunday, followed by excellent holds over the rest of the week in order to do well in the long run.
