Despite Hollywood horror film The Nun running in the theatres along with 5-6 other Hindi films, Stree is the first choice amongst audiences. The film is running in 1770 screens and is running in packed houses especially during the evenings. This was evidenced on the second Tuesday as well, what with Rs. 3.22 crore more coming in. Even on the weekdays the film is staying on to be quite strong and that means exhibitors would be pretty much deliberating on retaining it on a good count of shows in the third week too despite other new films releasing.
Stree has collected Rs. 88.82 crore already and is reaching the Rs. 90 crore mark much faster than expected. In the process the film is going past other biggies of the year like Veere Di Wedding and Satyameva Jayate, both of which were A rated films.
While Rs.100 crore is now just round the corner and films like Raid and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety would be left behind in a jiffy, the real challenge would be to go past the number of Raazi. There are too many new releases till Sui Dhaaga arrives on 28th September and if Stree has to achieve that milestone; it would need to do that before that date.
