Will Smith's latest release Aladdin co-starring Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott and Marwan Kenzari is faring decently at the Indian box office. The Hollywood biggie hit the screens on May 24 and took to a good opening in India despite releasing alongside two Bollywood films - Arjun Kapoor starrer India's Most Wanted and Vivek Oberoi's political drama PM Narendra Modi. In fact, Aladdin earned more money than both the Hindi films did together on the first day. The musical fantasy drama performed well over the first weekend as well and since then has been doing fairly decent business at the domestic box office.

Just a while back, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to the microblogging site Twitter and revealed the updated figures tweeting, "#Aladdin is decent in Weekend 2... Had a strong chance of crossing ₹ 45 cr [Nett BOC], even touching ₹ 50 cr, but with #Bharat arriving on Wed, the run will be cut short... [Week 2] Fri 1.90 cr, Sat 3.10 cr, Sun 3.60 cr. Total: ₹ 39.65 cr Nett BOC. India biz."
He also wrote, "#Aladdin biz at a glance...Week 1: ₹ 31.05 cr. Weekend 2: ₹ 8.60 cr. Total: ₹ 39.65 cr. Nett BOC. India biz. Gross BOC after Weekend 2: ₹ 47.21 cr."

Since Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif's Bharat is releasing this Wednesday, Aladdin's business will get affected at the box office in India. Having said that, going by the current trend, it seems Will Smith starrer will at least cross the Rs 50 crore mark before ending its theatrical run in India.
