Despite being in 4th week, the horror comedy Stree is successfully attracting the audience in theaters. The new releases are struggling but Stree is minting bucks easily and the crowd is loving it. This is the best example of how story can win the crowd and how it can dominate the box office.
On its 4th Friday, Stree brought in 1.51 crore and 2.05 crore on 4th Saturday. Its total is now 116.23 crore in 23 days. Stree is the 7th Highest Grosser of 2018 and also, the most profitable film of this year. Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer is a sheer delight in theaters.
Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor’s Batti Gul Meter Chalu is earning in an average manner. It had a low opening day of 6.76 crore and it grew on Saturday to collect 7.96 crore. The growth is not as much as expected but it is still a welcome number, especially when the reviews and response for the film was mixed.
Batti Gul Meter Chalu’s total is 14.72 crore. It will earn below 24 crore in its opening weekend. BGMC doesn’t have much competition yet it has not really enjoyed its major screen share. If it doesn’t grow and hold, it will suffer at the box office.
