The Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan and Kajol starrer Tanhaji is not willing to stop at any cost as it continued a staggering run at the ticket windows but there is no hope for Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak as it continued to go down.
Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior
Tanhaji The Unsung Warrior was superb in its first week as it received the favorable reviews from the audience for its enthralling content, powerful performance and brilliant story which helped the film earn the first week collections with Rs 118.91 crore while the second week kicked off with a bang.
Tanhaji is going from strength to strength as audience poured in love, collecting an astounding Rs 10.06 crore on second Friday. The Om Raut directed film grew to a strong Rs 16.36 crore on second Saturday followed by an eye popping Rs 22.12 crore on Sunday. It showed a magnificent hold on second Monday with Rs 8.17 crore. There was hardly any drop on second Tuesday with Rs 7.72 crore. As per early estimates, the earnings on 2nd Wednesday held well as compared to Tuesday with Rs 7.44 crore, summing the total to a massive Rs 190-191 crore. The budget of Tanhaji is Rs 125 crore (Production Cost: 110 Crore and Prints & Advertising Cost: 15 Crore) from 3880 screens across India
Tanhaji The Unsung Warrior tells the story of Tanhaji Malusare who was a military leader in the Maratha Empire and has fought alongside Maratha leader Shivaji Maharaj in various battles throughout the years. Tanhaji Malusare is popular for his role in the Battle of Sinhagad and is played by Ajay Devgn.
Chhapaak is going nowhere as the trend of the social drama is down. Chhapaak remained low in its first week. The earnings dropped heavily after a big holiday, consolidating the first week total on a disappointing note with just Rs 28.38 crore.
In the absence of any major releases, Chhapaak could not perform and dropped heavily on second Friday with Rs 1.10 crore. However, there was some growth on second Saturday with Rs 1.40 crore and Rs 1.75 crore on Sunday but the film crashed on second Monday with Rs 50 lakhs followed by Rs 45 lakhs on Tuesday. As per early trade estimates, the social dram dropped further with Rs 40 lakhs on Wednesday, bringing the total 13 days collections to Rs 33.50-34 crore.
The budget of Chhapaak is Rs 45 crore ( Production Cost: 35 Crore , Prints & Advertising Cost: 10 Crore) and has been released in 1700 screens across India and looks like the social drama will not be able to cross it.
