The makers of “Udta Punjab” were worried as somebody leaked the uncensored version of the movie a day before its release but to their surprise, “Udta Punjab” is actually flying high on box office.
After weeks of uncertainty and a court case controversy, the movie became one of the highest grosser of the year so far. The movie has struck the right chords with the audience and is minting moolah at the box office.
The movie features Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor and Diljit Dosanjh in the key role. Where others have had a fair share of hit movies which were big grossers, for Shahid Kapoor this movie is more like a philosopher’s stone.
Shahid is one of the most underrated actors in Bollywood, though no one doubts his acting skills but his movies have never garnered such good collections.
“Udta Punjab’s” 1st-day collection was 10.05 crores, the movie collected 11.25 crores on the second day and if you look at the third-day collection, it garnered 12.50 crores. In three days total box office collection of this movie is 33.80 crores!
Huge isn’t it? Now, if we look at the figures of Shahid Kapoor’s previous movies – “Haider”– 19.45 crore, “Phata Poster Nikhla Hero” – 21.25 crore, “Shaandaar”– 27.4 crore and “R… Rajkumar” – 30.7 crore!
Their total collection is less than “Udta Punjab’s” 3 days collection and that may have giving Shahid all kinds of joy.
The movie is going to enter 50cr club soon and we couldn’t be happier for “Tommy Singh” (Shahid Kapoor).
Yo! Shahid !
