The collections of the film on Tuesday stood at Rs 14.05 cr, which is a significant jump from the film’s collection on Monday.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted: “‘Baaghi 3’ jumps on Day 5, #Holi festivities give it a big push… Biz multiplies across circuits, despite several screens starting shows post 3 pm… Mass circuits are fantastic… FriRs 17.50 cr, Sat Rs 16.03 cr, Sun Rs 20.30 cr, Mon Rs 9.06 cr, Tue Rs 14.05 cr.

It remains to be seen if the film continues with the growth in numbers, or starts to record a slump Wednesday onward.

Directed by Ahmed Khan, “Baaghi 3” released in India on March 6. The action drama sees Tiger Shroff returning as Ronnie. In the third film, he goes to Syria and singlehandedly takes on an entire army to rescue his brother, played by Riteish Deshmukh. The movie also features Shraddha Kapoor and Ankita Lokhande.

Did Armaan Malik just delete his Insta account?

Mumbai– All posts on singer Armaan Malik’s Instagram have suddenly been deleted. Not only that, the singer posted a text last night, which reads: “I can’t take it anymore”.

The post is written in white ink over a black background. This sudden deletion of all previous posts, with a one-line cryptic note, has led to speculation among the singer’s fans regarding whether his profile has been hacked.

One fan commented: “Armaan what happened? You are giving us real tension. Please don’t do this.”

Confused whether the singer himself did it or his profile has been hacked, another fan wrote: “Is this you Armaan?”

Another user thought the singer is probably going through a rough patch mentally, and commented: “Did you just delete everything? Don’t worry too much. Everything sorts itself out with time.”

However, a closer look at the singer’s Twitter account reveals everything is all right with him. Going by his tweets, it seems that probably his Instagram account has been hacked.

Only yesterday the singer tweeted, with a smiling selfie: “We did it guys #1MillionArmaanians on Twitter finally. Onwards & upwards no looking back.. let’s gooo!!”

Gajraj Rao: Big roles started coming my way post ‘Badhaai Ho’
