Shraddha and Shahid Kapoor’s latest release Batti Gul Meter Chalu failed to post an impressive total in its first weekend. The Shree Narayan Singh directorial opened on Friday with Rs 6.76 crore and could not enjoy decent jumps over the weekend.
As per the box office reports, the film earned 8.54 crore on first Sunday to take its total domestic box office collection to 23.26 crore after three days. The Sunday collection also got affected because of the Asia Cup match. The film needs to remain steady during weekdays to cross 30 crore in the first week.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh, who earlier described Batti Gul Meter Chalu’s box office performance as lackluster, wrote on Monday, “#BattiGulMeterChalu did grow over the weekend, but the jump in biz wasn’t substantial enough… Biz on Day 3 was affected due to the crucial cricket match, but the trending is dull… Weekdays are crucial… Fri 6.76 cr, Sat 7.96 cr, Sun 8.54 cr. Total: ₹ 23.26 cr. India biz.”
The box office collection of the film is as follows:
Friday (Day 1): ₹ 6.76 cr
Saturday (Day 2): ₹ 7.96 cr
Sunday (Day 3): ₹ 8.54 cr
Total: ₹ 23.26 cr
