Box-Office Report: Diljit Dosanjh’s ‘Soorma’ sees a drop in its collection
Shaad Ali’s biographical sports drama, ‘Soorma’, based on the life of Hockey player Sandeep Singh, starring Diljit Dosanjh in lead, has been doing a decent business at the box-office upon its release. However, there was a drastic fall in the film’s collection from Monday onwards.
According to a report in Box Office India, the film earned around 1.75-1.85 crore nett region on Tuesday. Overall the film’s collection has been around 17 crore nett approx so far. In comparison to the film’s collection in its first weekend, there was a 30-40 per cent drop in its earning on Monday.
The film’s business may have been affected a little bit as it released alongside Hollywood flick ‘Ant Man And The Wasp’ and Ranbir Kapoor‘s ‘Sanju’, which released three weeks back, is still doing exceptionally well. And with Dharma Production’s romantic drama ‘Dhadak’ releasing this Friday, the collection’s of ‘Soorma’ will take a further dip.
Singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh has been receiving great response from both critics as well as the audience for his portrayal of Sandeep Singh in his biopic. In one of his earlier interviews, while talking about his preparation for this film, Diljit had shared, “It took me about 15 days just to get the body language and the way he walks etc right. After that, we started working on the hockey technique. In sports films, I think it is important to get these things right, but it is also a combination of the emotional quotient in the film. We have to find a way to balance both.”
Also starring Angad Bedi and Taapsee Pannu in significant roles, ‘Soorma’ released on July 13 and received mixed reviews from the critics.
