Chhapaak box office collection Day 2: Deepika Padukone film to grow over the weekend.
Deepika Padukone’s film Chhapaak, based on the life of acid attack survivor and social activist Laxmi Agarwal, earned Rs 6.90 crore on Day 2, taking its total collection to Rs 11.67 crore.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, “#Chhapaak witnesses an upward trend on Day 2, but the 2-day total is underwhelming... Decent at premium multiplexes, but unable to connect *and* collect beyond metros... Needs to cover lost ground on Day 3... Fri 4.77 cr, Sat 6.90 cr. Total: ₹ 11.67 cr. #India biz.”
Also starring Vikrant Massey, Chhapaak faces competition from Ajay Devgn-Kajol-Saif Ali Khan starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. The period drama helmed by Om Raut has exceeded the expectations of film trade analysts.
Chhapaak opened to rave reviews on January 10. The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave the film 3.5 stars. In her review, Shubhra wrote, "You look at Deepika Padukone, so far away from the dressed-up, made-up parts she’s done till now, and acknowledge an actor who wants to break out of her safe zone, to actually inhabit someone else’s skin even if it’s burnt. Yes, it’s worthy, but it’s also very watchable."
