83 box office: Ranveer Singh starrer struggles big time to enter the Rs 100 crore club
Despite a stellar star cast including Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Pankaj Tripathi, Boman Irani and an incredible story of legendary cricketer Kapil Dev, Kabir Khan’s directorial venture 83 failed to create a big bang at the box office. It has been thirteen days and the biographical film is still struggling to hit the 100 crore mark in the domestic markets. 83 has now minted Rs 1.08 crores on Thursday, thus making the total Rs 97 crores at the box office.
The sports drama faced heavy competition from Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna starrer Pushpa and Tom Holland starrer Spider-Man: No Way Home who have done a terrific job at the box office compared to Ranveer Singh starrer. The collections have dropped very fast in the last few days and it remains to be seen if it can collect better over the third weekend. The film has suffered the highest losses in the history of Hindi cinema due to huge costs and now the only thing that remains to be seen is whether the film can hit the 100 crore nett mark.
Take a look at 83 box office collections of Week 2:
Friday: Rs 4.36 crores
Saturday: Rs 7.73 crores
Sunday: Rs 7.31 crores
Monday: Rs 2.01 crores
Tuesday: Rs 1.52 crores
Wednesday: Rs 1.12 crores
Thursday: Rs 1.08 crores
Total: Rs 97 crores

It is a story that unites in a way nothing else does, just like it did in 1983. The sheer power of the game and what the 1983 World Cup win meant for India and the team, Kabir Khan has hit it out of the park and how! The achievement of the cricket team that brought India’s its first glory since Independence ought to be celebrated and Kabir has left no opportunity to stay true to that.”
