Both Kabir Singh and Article 15 slowed down on Tuesday due to the India-New Zealand cricket match. It is a different mater though that the match couldn’t finish due to rain but audiences didn’t really turn up in theatres.
Kabir Singh collected Rs. 3.20 crores more that has resulted in overall numbers standing at Rs. 243.17 crores. It will now cross the lifetime of Uri - The Surgical Strike today, something that had earlier seemed possible for yesterday itself.
On the other hand Article 15 brought in Rs. 1.50 crores* and with this the total has reached Rs. 49.73 crores*. Again, it had seemed that Rs. 50 crores mark would have been achieved yesterday itself but that is now happening today.
Both the films would be impacted again today as the cricket match would be continued. Still, in the bigger scheme of things that shouldn’t make much of a difference as both films have succeeded in a good way already and whatever more that’s coming is a bonus number.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
