Tumhari Sulu: Here’s the first day collection of Vidya Balan-starrer

Vidya Balan movie

Vidya Balan has made a smashing entry into our hearts with ‘Tumhari Sulu’, where she plays a character of a housewife who turns an RJ, adding wings to her dreams. The movie released yesterday, and has opened from mixed to positive reviews. And now, we have our hands on the first day collection of the same.

Given that very few women-centric movies make it far in Bollywood, it comes as no surprise that the first day collection of ‘Tumhari Sulu’ is low, despite a topic of a housewife making a career, which should resonate with the masses. It collected Rs 2.75 crore, which is quite low. However, let’s not judge the box office collection by first day only, as this collection is more than that of ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’. ‘Hindi Medium’ and ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, all of which turned out to be hits.

Anyway, ‘Tumhari Sulu’ has already recovered its budget through satellite rights, in-film branding and more. Thus, the collections are already a profit. Now how much profit can it incur, is to be seen. (Also Read: Tumhari Sulu movie review: All heart with added bouts of melodrama)

Maybe word of mouth will bring in more moolah for the Vidya Balan-starrer. Let’s wait and watch. The movie also stars Neha Dhupia and Manav Kaul in pivotal roles.

'Black Panther' overpowers 'Aiyaary' in the first weekend, as the latter disappoints

Neeraj Pandey’s thriller ‘Aiyaary’ starring Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee in the lead roles has registered a poor business in its first weekend.

The movie did a business of Rs 4.25 crore nett on Sunday which is exactly the same as its Saturday business and the three day total business is Rs 11.75 crore nett which is a disappointment. Even, Sidharth’s earlier outing ‘Ittefaq’ which was made at half the budget of this movie had done a better business of Rs 14.82 crore nett in its first weekend.

The American superhero flick ‘Black Panther’ which released on the same day as ‘Aiyaary’ has overpowered the latter and has done a decent business of Rs 18.75 crore nett over the weekend. Even though the numbers aren’t great, they are much better than ‘Aiyaary’.

Coming back to the crime thriller, the start hasn’t been a good one and considering the foreign locales and the star cast, the budget of the movie is surely above Rs 30 crore nett. So, if you take the budget into consideration, the collections are quite low and the movie needs a huge boost in the weekdays to earn any profit whatsoever.  (Also Read: Aiyaary movie review: The men in army fail to shine through the muddled up plot)

'Black Panther' eats 'Aiyaary' on the first day at the box office

The third week of February saw two releases. One was Bollywood film ‘Aiyaary’ which stars Sidharth Malhotra, Rakul Preet, Manoj Bajpayee and Pooja Chopra in the lead whereas the other one is Hollywood film ‘Black Panther’.

‘Aiyaary’ was earlier slated to release in the Republic week but postponed it’s release because director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’ finally managed to release. Even Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘PadMan’ postponed it’s release.

Talking about the first-day collection of the Neeraj Pandey directed patriotic thriller, the film managed to collect 3-3.25 crore nett at the box office.


The ‘Black Panther’ managed to collect 5-5.25 crore nett at the box office. Reportedly, the Hollywood film only had 55% of the Bollywood film’s screen space but still managed to collect numbers. (Also Read: Aiyaary: Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee’s film banned in Pakistan)

Next week two Bollywood films namely ‘Welcome to New York’ and ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ are slated to release and looks like ‘Aiyaary’ doesn’t stand chance to make up in the second week also.
