Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt and Diljit Dosanjh starrer Udta Punjab had a good opening week at the Box Office. After a solid opening weekend with the collection of 33.8 crores, the movie witnessed big drop on Monday but still managed to sustain at lower levels throughout the weekdays. Udta Punjab earned 48.5 crores in the first week, thus becoming the highest opening week grosser for Shahid Kapoor. The movie has beaten the opening week collection of R… Rajkumar by a margin of around 1.5 crores.
Udta Punjab performed best in east Punjab and Delhi probably because of Diljit Dosanjh, who enjoys a big fan following in these areas. The movie performed decently well in other metros and multiplexes but remained low in mass centers and single screens.
Made on a budget of around 48 crores, Udta Punjab needs a good second weekend to emerge as a profitable ventured for the makers. Though Udta Punjab has beaten R… Rajkumar’s first-week collection, it seems difficult for the movie to cross the lifetime collection of R… Rajkumar (67 crores).
