Yash Raj Films’ Sui Dhaaga has taken a good start at the box office although a better result was expected, considering the lead cast of Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma. This Sharat Kataria directorial has got positive reviews from the critics.
According to the early estimates, Sui Dhaaga has collected 8.30 crore on its 1st day. It’s actually not a bad number as this is a content driven movie, without an entertainment quotient. Also, after a slow morning with 20% occupancy, Sui Dhaaga picked up pace in evening.
Multiplexes are showing the major response and footfalls for the film. The word of mouth for Sui Dhaaga is decent and the fan base of Varun and Anushka will ensure that it grows today and tomorrow. There was also India vs Bangladesh Asia Cup final yesterday which would have halted the footfalls in theaters.
We have seen films like Stree, Raid and Raazi doing well at the box office, which grew only on the word of mouth and due to amazing performances so Sui Dhaaga can also grow in coming days. It will need to show a momentum over the weekend and mint around 30 crore collections in its opening weekend.
Sui Dhaaga doesn’t have any competition and with 2500 screens in India, it has ample opportunities to do a strong business. Stay tuned as we will update the final numbers in a short time.
