Chhichhore Box Office Day 1 (Early Trends): The Sushant Singh Rajput, Shraddha Kapoor, Varun Sharma led film has finally hit the screens and received fairly good reviews from the critics. The word of mouth (WOM) is leaning towards positive, which is a good sign for the film. Still, in its initial days, it’ll be too early to say anything about WOM.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s highest openers contain a mammoth M.S.Dhoni – The Untold Story (21.30 crores) on the top position. The second one, Kedarnath (7.25 crores) has a huge gap between the collections. The early estimates for Chhichhore suggest it just could edge-pass Kedarnath to be the 2nd highest opener of Sushant Singh Rajput.
As per the early trends, the movie has collected in the range of 6-8 crores. This was the usual prediction, but a good thing is, Chhichhore is aiming towards the upper-roof of this range. The evening shows have performed comparatively well, and hence the jump. Well, it’s to be seen whether or not it breaks some milestones in Sushant’s highest openers’ list but as of now, this is a good number for the film.
Next week sees the release of Ayushmann Khurrana’s Dream Girl which will take a major chunk of the audience from Chhichhore. Both target a similar set of audiences; that’s why Chhichhore has to recover the most in its 1st week. Current domination by Saaho could see a hold if WOM for Chhichhore proves to be very good over the weekend.
Chhichhore features Sushant with Shraddha Kapoor, Varun Sharma, Prateik Babbar, Tahir Raj Bhasin, and Naveen Polishetty among others.
