Sui Dhaaga has done what seemed a bit difficult; getting impressive footfalls over the weekend and despite being an off beat subject, this Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma starrer has collected 36 crore in its opening weekend. This is a truly amazing achievement.
Sui Dhaaga had a good opening day of 8.30 crore and it grew by leaps and bound on Saturday, collecting 12.25 crore. Sunday, 3rd day, took the collections to 16 crore and it showed the kind of growth you will see only for good movies which are being liked by the audience. Sui Dhaaga’s total in its opening weekend is around 36.55 crore.
With fairly good reviews and constant flow of family audience in metro cities, Sui Dhaaga has won the box office. It should show a good momentum in weekdays too. It can now target the 50 crore mark by the end of its 1st week. YRF’s marketing, Varun-Anushka’s fan base, performance and Sharat Kataria’s direction has done a fabulous job.
Vishal Bhardwaj’s Pataakha has also witnessed a significant growth over the weekend. It had a dull opening day of 90 lakhs but it rose to 1.4 crore on 2nd day and also minted around 2 crore on Sunday, making its opening weekend total of 4.30 crore. Pataakha has got good reviews and considering its topic and buzz, this is not a bad number.
Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Batti Gul Meter Chalu has gone down in its 2nd week. It was anyways not collecting a decent total and with new releases, its screen count and footfalls have decreased by a huge margin. Its total is now 37.26 crore. It won’t even touch the 45 crore mark in its lifetime now.
