Despite competition from Sanju and Ant-man, Diljit Dosanjh’s Soorma was able to put a decent total in its first weekend at the box office. The film has got a very limited release because of the absence of any big name in the movie, but positive word of mouth helped it in its upward movement.
As per the box office reports, the film earned 5.60 crores on Sunday to take its total domestic box office collection to 13.85 crores after 3 days. It could not make the most of the positive reviews because of an average pre-release buzz. It needs to remain steady on weekdays to post a decent total in its lifetime. The budget of the film is small (~25 crores), so it will definitely be a profitable venture for makers.
Taran Adarsh shared the latest box office figures of Soorma on Twitter, “#Soorma has decent weekend… Considering the low start on Fri morning, the biz did escalate over the weekend, but the jump on Sun wasn’t substantial enough… Maintaining the pace on weekdays is important… Fri 3.20 cr, Sat 5.05 cr, Sun 5.60 cr. Total: ₹ 13.85 cr. India biz.”, he wrote.
Soorma is a biopic on Indian hockey player Sandeep Singh. The movie boasts of a star cast that includes the names of actors such as Diljit Dosanjh, Tapsee Pannu, Angad Bedi, Siddharth Shukla, Satish Kaushik, Seema Kaushal, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Pitobash, and Vijay Raaz.
The box office collection of the film is as follows:
Friday (Day 1): ₹ 3.20 cr
Saturday (Day 2): ₹ 5.05 cr
Sunday (Day 3): ₹ 5.60 cr
Total: ₹ 13.85 cr
