One of the Hit Female-Centric Films
What makes the journey of Veere Di Wedding at the box office so special is the superb trending of the film despite the absence of any famous male star. Before its release, no one expected it to perform in such a great way. But the movie came as a surprise and impressed everyone with its new concept. It took the highest opening and beat Tanu Weds Manu Returns in the theatres, despite the latter being a franchise film.
Earlier, the success of a film used to depend on the presence of a famous male actor. But Veere Di Wedding changed this trend. It was a big experiment from the makers and the success of this movie is no small feat for the entire Hindi films industry. The film received a response from the limited section of the audience and most of its footfalls were from the urban population.
Total earning of Veere Di Wedding in the First Week
Veere Di Wedding showed a positive trending over the first weekend and collected over Rs. 35 crores in its pocket. Till now, this is the first highest first-weekend collection of the year 2018. It passed the crucial test on Monday and only dropped by around 40%, which itself explains why it is one of the greatest hits of 2018.
The film crossed the mark of Rs. 50 crores in the first five days. However, it is important for the film to hold well on its second Friday, the chances for which are very less as a new Hollywood film is releasing in the theatres. It would be interesting to watch how it fares on the second Friday.
Overall, in its first week, Veere Di Wedding first week collection stands at Rs. 56.96 crores and the film has just one week to hold well. In the third week, a new Hindi film, Race 3 would be the center of attraction for the audience.
