Article 15 Box Office Day 7: It has done well in its first week at the Box Office. The film opened at 5.02 crores on Friday, grew over the weekend and then stayed above the 3 crore right through the weekdays. On Thursday too the film accumulated 3 crores* more and with this the overall collections now stand at 34.16 crores.
Considering the fact that this is a niche film, one would have expected a number like this to be a lifetime score and even that would have been fine. However, from being just a profitable film to actually emerge as a successful affair, Article 15 has done well to stay solid right through.
Anubhav Sinha’s last release Mulk was a well made affair too but hadn’t really got its due theatrically.. However, with Article 15, he has more than made up for it and now the collections would comfortably go past the 50 crores mark at least. In fact the new Hindi releases of the week have hardly seen much of a showcasing and hence Article 15 would stay on to be audience preferred choice after Kabir Singh.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
