‘Chhapaak’ Box-Office Report: Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey starrer struggles for footfalls on day 1
Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey starrer ‘Chhapaak’ hit the silver screens yesterday. The film garnered mostly positive reviews from the critics. However, going by its opening day collection this Meghna Gulzar directorial has a long way to go. ‘Chhapaak’ managed to earn only Rs. 4.77 crores on its opening day.
Helmed by Meghna Gulzar, ‘Chhapaak’ is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. The film also stars Vikrant Massey in a pivotal role. Prior to the film’s release, Deepika visited JNU to express her solidarity with the assaulted students. That one move from the leggy beauty earned her several praises. It also led to a certain section of the netizen calling for a boycott of the film. Perhaps in the coming day, word-of-mouth will help in boosting the film’s collections.
Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh shared the first-day collection of ‘Chhappak’ on his Twitter handle. Taran wrote, “#Chhapaak is ordinary on Day 1… Collects well at select high-end multiplexes… Biz at Tier-2 and 3 cities and also mass circuits is way below the mark… Growth on Day 2 and 3 crucial for a respectable weekend total… Fri ₹ 4.77 cr. #India biz.”

‘Chhapaak’ mark Deepika’s debut in the production. This is hands-down one of her most appreciated performance. The actress made sure to leave no stone unturned to bring the story of an acid attack survivor to the Indian audience.
The film released alongside Ajay Devgn starrer ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’. So that one is posing as a tough competition for this Deepika starrer. However, with both the film belonging to different genres lets see if they are able to mint a decent number at the box-office.
Until then you guys stay tuned for more updates on the box office performance of ‘Chhapaak’
