Director Sharat Katariya’s new film Sui Dhaaga maintained a steady performance at the box office during the first week and recorded the sixth best first week of the year. Holiday on 2nd October helped the film to cross 60 crore mark. The film passed Monday test with flying colors but had a big drop on Wednesday. The collection on both Wednesday and Thursday was less than 4 crore.
As per the box office reports, the film earned 3.35 crore on Thursday which takes its total domestic box office collection to Rs 62.50 crore after seven days. The film now faces competition from the new releases this Friday – Ayushmann Khurrana’s Andhadhun, Aayush Sharma’s Loveyatri and Tom Hardy’s Hollywood film Venom. A big drop during weekdays and competition from new releases might affect its lifetime collection and it may fail to score a century at the box office.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the collection of the movie on twitter. “#SuiDhaaga has a SOLID Week 1… Witnessed strong trending from Day 1 to Day 5 [national holiday], but slipped on Day 6 and Day 7… Weekend 2 is crucial… Fri 8.30 cr, Sat 12.25 cr, Sun 16.05 cr, Mon 7 cr, Tue 11.75 cr, Wed 3.80 cr, Thu 3.35 cr.
