Box Office: Veere Di Wedding (Rs. 56.96 crore), Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran (Rs. 51.83 crore) and Raazi (Rs. 118 crore) add on to Bollywood’s good run

By Joginder Tuteja

In its first week itself, Veere Di Wedding has done the kind of business which could well have been expected out of it from its entire lifetime. The film had a fabulous first week of Rs. 56.96 crore and that has ensured that it has emerged as a major success.

For Sonam Kapoor, this is another biggie after Neerja. Kareena Kapoor Khan has three successes in a row with Ki & Ka and Udta Punjab before this. Shashanka Ghosh too now has two successes in a row with Khoobsurat preceding this. As for Ekta Kapoor, she has bounced back as a producer with Veere Di Wedding turning out to be a money spinner.

Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran is churning in good moolah too with the second week billing reading as Rs. 16.42 crore. This is just a little over 50% drop over the first week collections of Rs. 35.41 crore. The film is the highest grosser ever for John Abraham in a solo lead part as it has already netted Rs. 51.83 crore. In its third week, the film should go past the Rs. 60 crore mark though post that it would face a huge challenge from Race 3. It should do well on its digital release soon.

Raazi currently stands around Rs. 118 crore total. The film was stable during this week as well though now it would be all about the best business that it could do over the weekend. Post that it would be bracing up for its last few days in theatres as Race 3 would be arriving in theatres on Eid and that would take away practically all the screens. Expect the film’s satellite and digital premiere soon.

Note: All collections as per production and distribution sources
