Yash Raj Films’ efforts to choose the release date of Sui Dhaaga has paid off. The film got good opening weekend days and then, there is Gandhi Jayanti holiday which gave it a huge boost in its collections. Its further road has become pretty easy now.
Being a national holiday, Sui Dhaaga’s shows witnessed a big footfalls across the country, with 60-70% occupancy on Tuesday. It has collected 11.75 crore on its 5th day, making its total 55.35 crore. Despite having an off-beat subject, earning such a number is quite an achievement.
With this rise on 5th day, 60+ crore is an easy target. This will also help Sui Dhaaga to get a very strong lifetime total. It still needs to be seen how much it collects today, which is the first normal weekday for this Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan starrer.
This Friday, AndhaDhun and LoveYatri are releasing but they won’t be much of a competition to Sui Dhaaga so if it can retain a significant chunk of screens, it can bring in good bucks in 2nd week too, closing in on 100 crore, who knows.
Sui Dhaaga is looking at 62-64 crore 1st week total which is impressive for such a topic. It has got good reviews and audience, especially families in multiplexes is giving it a terrific response.
