The Varun Dhawan – Anushka Sharma starrer Sui Dhaaga released yesterday. The film which hit a total of 2500 screens in the domestic market opened to a rather tepid response from the audience. However with positive reviews and good audience feedback expectations are that the business of the film will see good growth over the weekend.
In this box office report we take a look at the opening day collections of Sui Dhaaga – Made in India while comparing the same to Varun Dhawan’s previous releases. Collecting Rs. 8.30 cr Sui Dhaaga has become Varun Dhawan’s seventh highest opening day grosser. Though the film surpasses the collections of Varun’s previous releases like Student of The Year that collected Rs. 7.48 cr, Badlapur that collected Rs. 7 cr, Main Tera Hero that collected Rs. 6.60 cr and October that collected Rs. 4.25 cr it does not manage to out beat the collections of a few of his other films. In fact, Varun’s other films like Dilwale that collected Rs. 21 cr, Judwaa 2 that collected Rs. 16.1 cr, ABCD 2 that collected Rs. 14.3 cr, Badrinath Ki Dulhania that collected Rs. 12.25 cr, Dishoom that collected Rs. 11.05 cr, and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania that collected Rs. 9.02 cr hold the top six spots on the list of Varun Dhawan’s highest opening day grossers.
Now, with Sui Dhaaga enjoying not just positive reviews but also good word of mouth coupled with the fact that the film faces little to no competition all that remains to be seen is whether the business of the film manages to make it one of Varun’s highest opening weekend grossers.
