It was always expected that Stree would hold well on Monday, considering the fact that the weekend was quite good and then it was also a partial holiday of Janamashtami. Since Friday opening number was 6.82 crore, a figure close to 4.5-5 crore seemed possible on Monday. However, yet again, the numbers that have come up are truly stunning. The collections are actually almost double of predictions all over again, what with 9.70 crore been recorded.
This is truly extraordinary as one doesn’t remember the last time when a small-mid size film like this opened over 5 crore on a Friday and then went on to have a Monday which was even bigger. However this is indeed happening with this Dinesh Vijan, Raj and DK film which is exceeding all expectations on a per day basis and is now behaving like a big star-cast film.
The film has reached 41.97 crore already and had this been the lifetime total, the makers would have already popped the champagne. However, these numbers have come in just 4 days which basically means an average of 10 crore per day since release.
Debutant director Amar Kaushik has delivered a major success here and one just can’t put a final lifetime number as yet. Even in the worst case scenario, Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor have been assured of a 80 crore Superhit at the least. However a number much higher than that in the final run could well be in the offering as well.
