Despite receiving good reviews from many movie critics, Shraddha and Shahid Kapoor’s Batti Gul Meter Chalu could not post a good total on its opening day at the ticket windows. The film had a partial holiday on Friday and it was expected to earn in double digits, but it turned out a disappointment on the first day.
As per the box office reports, the film collected 6.76 crore on its first Friday at the Indian box office. It needs big growth during the weekend to cross 25 crore mark. The budget of the film is about 25-30 crore, so it will not face any hurdle in becoming a profitable venture for the makers. Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, Batti Gul Meter Chalu is about a lawyer’s fight against the corrupt power companies after his friend commits suicide.
Film trade analyst Tarah Adarsh tweeted the opening collection of the movie.”#BattiGulMeterChalu has a low Day 1, despite partial holiday… Biz will have to multiply two-fold or three-fold on Day 2 and Day 3 for a respectable weekend total… Fri ₹ 6.76 cr. India biz. #BGMC“, he wrote.
The box office collection of the film is as follows:
Friday (Day 1): ₹ 6.76 cr
Total: ₹ 6.76 cr
