Dhadak, starring Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor, has completed its first weekend at the box office with an excellent collection.
The tragic love story has been performing brilliantly at the Indian box office since its opening day. Having been released on 2,235 screens across India, the film had made a collection of Rs 8.71 crore at the domestic market on its opening day.
Dhadak witnessed good growth in its business on Saturday as well, raking in Rs 11.04 crore on day 2. With strong word of mouth and positive reviews, the movie enjoyed even better occupancy on Sunday.
Dhadak collected Rs 13.92 crore on its day 3, taking its first-weekend collection to over Rs 33.67 crore net. The remake of Sairat has surprised all with its impressive performance at the commercial circuits.
Taran Adarsh tweeted, "And the BO numbers do the talking... #Dhadak packs an IMPRESSIVE TOTAL in its opening weekend... A consistent run on weekdays will help put up a STRONG Week 1 total... Fri 8.71 cr, Sat 11.04 cr, Sun 13.92 cr. Total: ₹ 33.67 cr. India biz."
Considering the fact that the movie features two newcomers as lead actors, the film's business has been exceptionally good. Although many found it less impressive than the Marathi original Sairat, debutant Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan's acting skills have been highly praised.
Directed by Shashank Khaitan, Dhadak is the tragic story of a young couple who face immense hurdles for being from two different communities. The movie focusses on the issue of caste discrepancies and honour killings.
