The Shahid Kapurr, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Punjabi Superstar Diljit Dosanjh starrer “Udta Punjab” is simply unstoppable. The controversial drama is just growing strong holding well on the weekdays.
The 1st weekend of “Udta Punjab” was fabulous earning Rs 33.80 crores which is way beyond expectation since the theme of the film was dark. However, with glowing reviews and ugly fight with CBFC before the movie was released, “Udta Punjab” minted Rs 4.50 crores on its first Monday while steadily earning Rs 4 crores on Tuesday and Rs 3.40 crores on Wednesday adding a total of Rs 45.70 crores. “Udta Punjab” was released across 2100 in India and 300 screens in Overseas as well. The budget is Rs 48 Crores (Production Cost is 34 Crores + Prints & Advertising Cost is 14 Crores).
Udta Punjab has met with a good start the UAE market despite its 18+ classification (Adults only rating) collecting AED 325,000 [Rs. 59.33 lacs] on 51 sites. We have to wait for the final figures tomorrow.
