Badla, produced under Gauri Khan and Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment, is an adaptation of 2016 Spanish release The Invisible Man. The plot revolves Naina Sethi, who is blamed for the murder of her lover and is caught in the conspiracy. Amitabh Bachchan plays the role of Badal Gupta, a lawyer, and Taapsee Pannu essays the role of Naina Sethi.
Last week, Badla has had an uninterrupted run at the box office with no major release disrupting its business. The suspense-drama was joined by films like Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra's Photograph, Tigmanshu Dhulia-directed Milan Talkies, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's and Mere Pyare Prime Minister but remain unaffected.
However, Akshay Kumar's patriotic-drama 'Kesari' has given a big competition to Badla. Kesari, released on Holi, has earned Rs 21.50 crore in its opening day, while Badla could earn Rs 2.35 crore on Thursday.Also read: Badla Box Office Collection Day 11: Taapsee-Amitabh Bachchan's film earns Rs 70.52 crore
