Last Friday, two Bollywood films clashed at the box-office. Kangana Ranaut, Jassie Gill, Richa Chadha and Neena Gupta, starrer Panga set up a clash with Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor led Street Dancer 3D. While both the films had a slow take off on Friday, they saw a slight growth on the weekend. Seems like Republic Day on Sunday has surely affected the growth of the films. On Friday, Panga earned Rs 2.70 crore followed by Rs 5.61 crore on Saturday. The film has now collected Rs 6.60 Crore on Sunday taking its total collections to Rs 14.91 Cr over the first weekend.
Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Panga fares below expectations, despite glowing word of mouth... Biz escalated on Day 2, but the jump was missing on Day 3 [#RepublicDay]... Needs to trend very strongly on weekdays for a firm footing... Fri 2.70 cr, Sat 5.61 cr, Sun 6.60 cr. Total: ₹ 14.91 cr. #India biz.” Tweeting about SD, he wrote, “#StreetDancer3D puts up a healthy total in its weekend... Saw an upswing on Day 3, aided by #RepublicDay holiday... Strong in mass belt... Needs to maintain the pace on weekdays... Fri 10.26 cr, Sat 13.21 cr, Sun 17.76 cr. Total: ₹ 41.23 cr. #India biz.” (ALSO READ: Jassie Gill UNFILTERED: Talks About Being Intimidated By Kangana Ranaut, Bagging Panga And How Acting Happened By Chance!- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)
