Shahid Kapoor starrer Udta Punjab enjoyed a decent opening in the domestic market because of positive critics’ verdict and pre-release controversies. Abhishek Chaubey directed dark film was able to impress the target audience with its content. Though the first day earning was not gargantuan, it managed to reach the 5th position in terms of the biggest opening of 2016.
As per the box office reports, the movie garnered approx 10.05 crores on the very first day in the domestic market. As the moviegoers have given thumbs-up to the film, it has enormous chance to have a decent growth in the collection on Saturday and Sunday. If it could manage a good jump in the collection on both days, the first weekend collection might cross 35 crores. The movie is doing excellent business only in the north region esp. Delhi and Punjab, so it would be interesting to see how does it fare during weekdays?
