An Action Hero had competition at the box office from Ajay Devgn's Drishyam 2 and Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon's Bhediya. Day 4 saw very little attendance for the movie, which resulted in a very low count. According to reports, 8.70% of An Action Hero's customers were in Hindi.
December 5th, Monday - According to Box Office India, attendance in broad circuits was still dismal. "Simply put, you cannot make an action movie that does not appeal to the mass circuits because the urban audience would be severely constrained unless the movie is more of a concept thriller and the urban audience may learn about it by word of mouth. Due to the lack of widespread attendance, the movie did not perform well on Sunday " stated BOI

This is Anirudh Iyer’s first movie, it is musician’s Parag’s first theatrical, writer Neeraj Yadav’s first film…During the entire journey of An Action Hero, it really felt like we were the newest students of cinema and were all set to make something really new and exciting.”
