Sui Dhaaga Box Office: Anushka Sharma-Varun Dhawan Film Gains Momentum

Though it started slow, Sharad Katariya’s Sui Dhaaga — Made in India, starring Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan in lead roles, picked up pace at the box office over the weekend.

The film, which opened to Rs 8.30 crore on Friday, went on to make Rs 12.25 crore on Saturday and Rs 16.05 crore on Sunday, raking in a total of Rs 36.60 crore over the weekend across 2500 screens in the country, reported film trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

“#SuiDhaaga witnesses EXCELLENT GROWTH... Day 2 + Day 3 biz is a clear indicator that its target audience [families] have helped multiply the biz... Day 3 is *almost double* of Day 1... Fri 8.30 cr, Sat 12.25 cr, Sun 16.05 cr. Total: ₹ 36.60 cr [2500 screens]. India biz,” he tweeted on Monday.

Saying that the YRF production is likely to do better on Tuesday, considering that it’s a national holiday, he added, “Although Day 4 [Mon] - the first working day after the weekend - is akin to an exam for all movies, #SuiDhaaga has an advantage of a big holiday tomorrow [Day 5; Gandhi Jayanti], so the real test will be from Day 6 [Wed] onwards... Biz on the national holiday is a BIG BONUS.”

However, Vishal Bhardwaj’s Pataakha, the story of two warring sisters (played by Dangal star Sanya Malhotra and debutante Radhika Madan) has had a lukewarm response, collecting only Rs 4.05 crore in the domestic box office.

“#Pataakha witnesses escalation in biz, but the 3-day total is low... It’s all about maintaining the pace today [Day 4]… Day 5 [Tue] is a national holiday, hence the biz should shoot up again... Fri 90 lakhs, Sat 1.40 cr, Sun 1.75 cr. Total: ₹ 4.05 cr [875 screens]. India biz,” Adarsh tweeted.
