Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi starrer latest Hindi movie Irada, which also stars Sagarika Ghatge in lead roles, reported a steady occupancy on 7th day of its release. The film hit on screens on 17th February and minted Rs 0.57 in first six days. After seeing a good response from public in weekend days, response for the film dropped from 1st Monday onward.
In second week, the movie’s business declined sharply as other Bollywood films overtook it in the race for box office collection. Competing hard with Irada, Taapsee Pannu’s latest Hindi flick collected Rs 0.71 crore in seven days. Sagarika Ghatge’s first film of 2017 fell short of Rs 0.14 crore in surpassing the earnings of Amit Roy’s directorial venture.
The movie’s screening in overseas has reported a less occupancy in its first week. The film registered a little income of around Rs 4 lacs in the foreign countries. The movie made zero business in Pakistan, India’s neighbouring country, as it has been banned there. In other parts of the world, the celluloid raked average response from the movie-watchers.
Opening on a decent note, the film garnered around 18% occupancy on the day of its release. The film witnessed surge in the occupancy on second day and minted around 3 lacs on Saturday. On Sunday, the movie reported little hike in the occupancy and bagged around 11 lacs. The celluloid registered a stagnant business of around 7 lacs on initial three days of its second week in cinema halls.
Yesterday, the movie saw a small drop in its income as it minted Rs 4 lacs. The film has observed slightly more occupancy today. Aparnaa Singh and Nishant Tripathi directed celluloid started the day with mere 3% occupancy in theatres. The occupancy didn’t remain same in noon and evening shows as other Hindi cinemas have divulged a big number spectators to its screenings in cinema halls.
