Will Smith starrer Aladdin is giving a tough competition to India's Most Wanted and PM Narendra Modi at the Indian box office. The Hollywood biggie released alongside the two films on May 24 and got off to a good start. After leaving behind Arjun Kapoor starrer and Vivek Oberoi's political drama at the ticket windows on day 1, Aladdin went on to perform even better over the opening weekend and raked in more moolah than the two Bollywood releases. The musical fantasy not only got cash registers ringing on Saturday but it also witnessed a sharp jump on Sunday too.

Directed by Guy Ritchie, Aladdin has been making headlines ever since it was announced back in 2017. While the Hollywood movie is enjoying a good run in India, did you know that Tara Sutaria had auditioned for the role of Jasmine? Yes, you heard that right. However, the newbie didn't bag the role and ultimately made her acting debut with recently released film Student of the Year 2.
