Announcing the updated figures, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to the microblogging site Twitter a while back and wrote, "#Aladdin dominates, maintains a strong lead on Day 2... Faring much, much better than #Hindi releases, but it can do with higher numbers thanks to the merits and genre... Fri 4.25 cr, Sat 6.50 cr. Total: ₹ 10.75 cr Nett BOC. India biz. Gross BOC: ₹ 12.80 cr. All versions."
Co-starring Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, and Billy Magnussen, Aladdin opened to good reviews across the globe and has been performing well in the US as well.

With hardly any compeition in India, Aladdin will continue to draw the audience in the cinema halls. It could very well cross the Rs 50 crore mark as well if it keeps trending well on weekdays too.
