The manner in which the weekend had picked up for Dhadak, there weren’t many doubts that the film would hold well on Monday as well. The Shashank Khaitan directed affair had managed good momentum already and that was set to continue over the weekdays as well. This is what happened on Monday as Rs. 5.52 crore more came in. Considering the fact that the opening day numbers were Rs. 8.71 crore, that’s a good hold by all means.
The film has now collected Rs. 39.19 crore already and by the look of things; at least Rs. 15 crore more should now come in during rest of the weekdays. That should bring the first week collections in the vicinity of Rs. 55 crore which would mark a good run for the film. Veere Di Wedding and Raazi had the first week collections of Rs. 56.96 crore and Rs. 56.59 crore respectively, and it has to be seen where does Dhadak stand in comparison to these films as the days progress.
As for the record held by Student of the Year for the best first week when it comes to a film with newcomers, it would be very comfortably surpassed by the Ishaan Khattar and Janhvi Kapoor starrer. Student of the Year had brought in Rs. 48 crore in its first week and that number would be crossed in quick time.
