As we know this Friday was a busy day with three films releasing the same day. These certainly included the sports drama as well called Pailwaan by Kiccha Sudeep. The film had Sudeep and Sunil Shetty playing disciple and mentor over the silver screen. The film, however, was released one day before the other two films – Dream Girl and Section 375. Pailwan was released in all the South Indian languages along with Hindi covering a good audience base giving a decent box office.
The film with an extra one day added in its first weekend enjoyed a decent word of mouth that proved better for the film. This was certainly evident in the box office collections. The collection in South Indian states was good with hampered one in the North Indian states for the Hindi version for the obvious reasons. With meager and decent figures at the box office both in North and the South Indian states, the film did well both at the box office.
As per reports, the 1st-weekend box office collection went on to score around 28.5 Crores at the box office and it remains similar during the weekdays as well. The other two films in the Hindi belt did hamper the collection of Pailwan in a big way, otherwise, it could have given a tough fight to the Ayushmann Khurrana’s film Dream Girl. Let’s see how things would move but at the moment things are rosy for the sports drama film during the first weekend. Stay tuned to know more and comment below.
