The recently released movie Stree has set a record breaking number on its first weekend. The film has seen a massive growth from Friday to Sunday and has garnered a sum total of 32.07 crore in the first three days of release!
It earned 6.82 crore on Friday which grew steadily over the weekend. On Saturday, the movie garnered 10.87 crore which rose to 14.38 crore on Sunday.
The makers are even more elated since the entire weekend collection is purely profit-based. They had recovered the money pre-release itself through other avenues such as music, digital and satellite.
A visibly excited Dinesh Vijan quoted, “We expected to open well as the entire campaign got a fantastic response and we were confident that the audiences would love the film. But this kind of love and appreciation is overwhelming! This year has been super for the industry and I am elated that Stree could be part of it!”
The Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer had intrigued audiences and critics alike and the strong word of mouth has increased footfalls this weekend.
With the positive response the film has been receiving, it is expected to hold strong over the week.
The horror comedy is produced by Dinesh Vijan, Raj and DK and is directed by Amar Kaushik.
The movie, which has made a mark despite the massive response to Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Gold’, might face little competition from the upcoming release ‘Paltan’.
