The Kabir Khan directed sports bio-pic, 83 starring Ranveer Singh released last month to a good response from the critics. However the film did not really connect with mass dominated sectors outside metros. But in the overseas market 83 which was based on India’s iconic win at the 1983 cricket World Cup has been doing well. In fact, the film has managed to draw in a staggering 8.27 million USD [Rs. 61.52 cr.] till date.
In this box office report we take a look at the overseas collections of 83 while comparing the same to releases of 2021. Not surprisingly, 83 that came with immense hype has managed to surpass the Akshay Kumar starrer Sooryavanshi that collected 8.20 million USD [Rs. 61 cr.] to become the highest overseas grosser of 2021. Besides Sooryavanshi the Ranveer Singh starrer 83 also out beats the collections of previous releases like Radhe - Your Most Wanted Bhai that collected 2.50 million USD [Rs. 18.60 cr.], Bellbottom that collected 1.90 million USD [Rs. 14.13 cr.], and Antim - The Final Truth that had collected 1.60 million USD [Rs. 11.90 cr.].
As of now, 83 still continues to run in select locations, with the resurgence of the pandemic forcing filmmakers to delay their releases, the Ranveer Singh starrer has gained a new lease on life. Trade predictions state that though the film continues to run, its overall collections will not see a considerably jump in number.
