The pre-sales numbers for Sarfira are“alarming”, as per Bollywood Hungama, as it is even worse than Ishq Vishk Rebound, which sold 12,000 tickets. The movie featured newcomers like Rohit Saraf, Pashmina Roshan and Jibraan Khan.

Compared to Kartik Aaryan's Chandu Champion, Sarfira has only one-tenth of the bookings. The numbers are particularly concerning for the Bollywood industry as it's unusual for a film with a top superstar to open so poorly.
