Ranveer Singh-starrer 83 is not doing as expected at the box office. While fans had been eagerly waiting to see the sports drama, it looks like the turnout in the cinema halls is not as expected. The film managed to collect Rs 29.59 crore during the Christmas weekend in India.
RANVEER SINGH’S 83 EARNS RS 29.59 CRORE
According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, 83 struggled to bring the audience to the theatres on day 2. There was a growth of 34.10 per cent. However, the big jump is missing. His tweet read, “#83TheFilm struggles on Day 2 Shows growth [34.10%], but big jump missing Premium multiplexes saviour Cities/towns *beyond metros* + mass circuits poor, despite #Christmas holiday Below expectations Fri 12.64 cr, Sat 16.95 cr. Total: 29.59 cr #India biz (sic).”
83 EARNS RS 16 CRORE ON DAY 2
The film began with an estimated collection of Rs 13-14 crore at the box office. But even during Christmas, the film didn’t show massive growth and collected around Rs 16 crore, according to a report by Box Office India.
“83 (Hindi) has collected around 16 crore nett on day two to take its two day to 28 crore nett with growth on day two set to be in the 30-35% region. The growth should have been more for the film as the opening day came out low and more importantly it was a national holiday for Xmas,” read Box Office India’s report.
83 stars Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Saqib Saleem, Chirag Patil, Harrdy Sandhu, Ammy Virk and Pankaj Tripathi, among others. The film hit the theatres on December 24 in 3D.
