The film had created a lot of buzz before its release thanks to the entertaining promos and peppy music.

According to Boxofficeindia, ‘Main Tera Hero had an average opening with mass circuits opening better be it multiplex properties or single screen ones. The average occupancy was around 30% plus which is lower if compared with Ragini MMS 2 which had an average occupancy of around 40-45% The film will be affected by the big cricket match in the evening so a better opening would have helped especially as the film is for the youth which comes to the theatres in the morning but still the film has chances if the reports are on the plus side.”

Despite of Team India making it to the semi finals and finals of the T20 World Cup, Main Tera Hero has been a steady gainer over the weekend.
