The major release of the week, Anubhav Sinha’s Ayushmann Khurrana starrer, ARTICLE 15, embarked on a dull start of around 15-20 percent on an average, and given the stark reality and hard hitting subject, set in the hinterland, the opening was expected. Having said that, there was a noticeable pick up during the latter shows and the film netted 5 crore plus during the opening day. It is sure to come into it’s own by the end of the first weekend, as it has garnered immense critical acclaim.
The Hollywood venture ANNABELLE COMES HOME (dubbed), which released on Thursday, managed an ordinary run netting 7 crore in two days.
Meanwhile, T-Series’ Shahid Kapoor-Kiara Advani starrer, KABIR SINGH saw a magical opening week as it netted 134 crore and is a blockbuster and is the star’s biggest solo hit by miles, dethroning JAB WE MET. The film is all set to dominate the new releases comprehensively and witness another superb weekend and gallop towards the 200 crore mark. KABIR SINGH has also crossed the S1m mark in North America, as we await the exact official validated total, as is the norm in the overseas.
