Irrfan Khan-starrer ‘Hindi Medium’ is a sleeper hit at the box office

Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar-starrer ‘Hindi Medium’ has turned out be a sleeper hit at the box office. The movie had a slow start at the box office, but picked up in its first week and eventually surpassed the weekend business of Mohit Suri’s ‘Half Girlfriend’. The movie is all set to hit the Rs 50 crore mark and it’s a really good number considering the budget of the movie. It’s a rarity for the movie to turn into a hit as the first two week numbers are behind two other movies.

The first week business of Rs 23.25 crore is the third highest behind ‘Half Girlfriend’ and ‘Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion’. The second week business of Rs 18.37 crore is the second highest number after ‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams’. This clearly indicates that the movie is a sleeper hit and proves that even cinema with good content can work wonders at the box office.

The movie is directed by Saket Chaudhary and stars Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar in the lead roles.
