After being leaked online, the most controversial film of the year “Udta Punjab” is here in theatres and not surprisingly the film has come out with flying colors at the box-office. Lets takes a look at the early estimates of film’s opening day and lifetime box-Office collection numbers.
As per early resports, Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Diljit Dosanjh starrer ‘Udta Punjab’ has taken average to good start at screens all over. The film is getting good response from urban cities like Delhi, East Punjab, Mumbai.
The presence of Diljit Dosanjh who is a great sensation in Punjab helped the flick to grab more eyeballs from East Punjab. With good occupancy of 50% in nothern circuits like Delhi and East Punjab and average occupancy of 30% in other regions, we are expecting it to mint an approx of Rs 10-11 crores on its opening day i.e Friday.
If everything goes well then it will surely gonna attract more young audience from metro cities on Saturday and Saturday helping it to post a strong number on its opening weekend.
The film is touted to be Shahid Kapoor’s biggest opener of his career and surpass the opening day numbers of R… Rajkumar (2013) which is his highest-grossing release.
As opposite to our expectations of its low earning due to the leaked version of Udta Punjab, its now seems like it is helping the flick to gross a good number at the box-office. The controversies surrounding the film with the censor board also provided it extra promotion.
Since the start of its controversy, the social media platform remained flooded with reactions and responses. So the film makers and trade analyst might be expecting very good start. We are still hopeful of movie to fly high at the box office.
