The Vicky Kaushal starrer Uri – The Surgical Strike that released earlier this year has been doing roaring business at the box office. Directed by Aditya Dhar, the business of Uri has seen a steady growth in collections despite new releases hitting screens. Now in its fifth weekend running, Uri has managed to upstage a major release that had hit screens a few years ago, and here’s how.
In this box office report, we take a look at the fifth weekend collections of Uri – The Surgical Strike while comparing the same to previous releases. Collecting a massive Rs. 12.37 cr on its fifth weekend, the business of Uri has managed to beat the collections of the previously releases Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion that had collected Rs. 6.97 cr to become the all-time highest fifth weekend grosser. Besides Baahubali 2, the business of Uri has managed to record higher collections than other releases like Dangal that collected Rs. 6.12 cr, 3 Idiots that collected Rs. 4.88 cr, Badhaai Ho that collected Rs. 4.70 cr, Padmaavat that collected Rs. 4.46 cr, Tiger Zinda Hai that collected Rs. 3.83 cr, Baahubali - The Beginning that collected Rs. 3.70 cr, Bajirao Mastani that collected Rs. 3.15 cr, and Stree that had collected Rs. 2.91 cr.
Currently, Uri – The Surgical Strike that released in January still continues to run in theatres at a much diminished rate. However, expectations state that the film will continue its run well into its sixth week and might just be one of the highest grosser of the year as well.
