[tps_footer]‘Udta Punjab’ directed by Abhishek Chaubey gained loads of limelight for its subject of drug abuse. The film stars actors Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh. The movie was loaded with controversies and was also in the headlines for its tiff with the censor board. After a credible first weekend, the movie dropped considerably in the weekdays.
The reviews for the film were up to the mark. The film was applauded for its plot and performances. Well, films of such a dark genre are not for the masses and ‘Udta Punjab’ due to the same reason saw a fall in its crowds. The film could not attract more watchers after the first weekend.
Due to the hype and the limelight, the first weekend was filled with viewers. ‘Udta Punjab’ has now crossed its second weekend at the box office. The second weekend collection of the film is Rs. 5.75 crore net approx. (Rs 57 million)
The Shahid–Alia starrer movie’s total collection comes to Rs. 53.25 crore net approx. (Rs 532 million). Even with the low earning levels, the film has managed to cross the 50 crore mark. It is expected that ‘Udta Punjab’ will see the final collection of around Rs. 60 crore. (Rs 600 million)
It is surely a commendable total for a dark film. The movie received amazing reviews from the critics and also positive word of mouth publicity. Most of the film’s collections were from the North where actor Diljit Dosanjh has an enviable popularity. The stated factors helped the film in its collections.[/tps_footer]
