Saala Khadoos obtained a rather decent opening at the Box Office with a stiff competition from Sunny Leone's sex comedy, Mastizaade.
The latter's movie can never be compared to a class movie like Saala Khadoos which had Madhavan giving a knockout performance but the fact remains, in India Sunny Leone is the most searched person on Google, meaning most popular too.

#SaalaKhadoos wasn't impressive. Loved Maddy in the film but melodrama was to the core.

#SaalaKhadoos is a lovely sports film made from the heart.But its poor start will play spoilsport.

Taran Adarsh reported, "#SaalaKhadoos is a focused release spread across 902 cinemas in India: Hindi  and Tamil  ... Overseas: 215 cinemas [Hindi]."
Sadly, inspite of having rich content and super performances by Madhavan and Ritika Singh, the film has failed to attract the viewers.
Why you ask? It is because the film has small stars in it, although Madhavan is a known face, he hasn't achieved major success like top actors. Also the movie was not promoted there by leaving a lot of viewers unaware of such a class movie.
Madhavan starrer got just 10% occupancy on the opening day which will result in very less collections. The movie now majorly relies on word of mouth promotions so has to pick up its business over the weekend.
Madhavn's film also released in Tamil and considering he is a huge star in the Tamil film industry, the film ought to do better than the Hindi version. Stay tuned to know the actual figures of the Saala Khadoos Box Office collection.
Taran Adarsh reported, "#SaalaKhadoos Fri ₹ 1.28 cr. Tamil version: ₹ 91 lacs. Total: ₹ 2.19 cr. India biz... Gulf $ 110,000 [₹ 74.68 lacs]."
