Bollywood may have just passed through its difficult phase. After a series of disasters and big-budget misfires, the film industry saw some hope with Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra and now R Balki’s Chup, which is doing well quite decently at the box office. The film, starring Dulquer Salmaan, Sunny Deol and Shreya Dhanwanthary, collected around Rs 4.70 crore in two days.
While the film saw a 35% drop on the second day and collected Rs 1.85 crore, according to a report from Box Office India, this is considered quite healthy as it could have been a lot more. Chup earned Rs 2.85 crore on its opening day and it now remains to be seen if the film will perform on Monday, the real test. Nevertheless, the film did well against Ayan Mukerji’s sci-fi film Brahmastra, which continues to hit money in its third week, although it still has a long way to go before it can be declared. blockbuster. The film earned Rs 5 crore on its third Saturday.
Prior to its release, Chup had also seen astronomical ticket sales. As of Wednesday, the film had sold over 63,000 tickets across India. And, on the day of its release, the movie sold almost 4 lakh tickets, more than the total number of tickets sold for Ajay Devgn’s Runway 34, Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey and Ranveer Singh’s Jayeshbhai Jordaar.
Chup: Revenge Of The Artist chronicles the murders of a serial killer, who targets critics and carves stars into the bodies of his victims. The film was financed by Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, Jayantilal Gada, Anil Naidu and Gauri Shinde.
It was a particularly tough year for Bollywood as Akshay Kumar suffered three consecutive flops, while Aamir Khan’s labor of love Laal Singh Chaddha bombed the box office. There seems to be renewed hope with Brahmastra and now Chup, after ticket prices were slashed on National Movie Day.
