Honsla Rakh had a fantastic first three days, grossing about 7.7 crore nett, easily the biggest post pandemic weekend for a Punjabi film and the third highest weekend ever for a Punjabi film. This comes with restrictions, and if they weren’t, you could add another 1 crore nett to the film for the weekend, putting it up against the largest openers of all time, Shadaa and Carry On Jatta 2.
Honsla Rakh maintained a good hold on Monday, dropping only 46% from Friday, which was a Dussehra holiday. The decrease from Sunday is barely 51%. The film has earned a total of 9 crore nett so far, with almost 1.40 crore nett coming on Monday.
The decrease is a little greater in East Punjab, as smaller places are always going to drop a little more after the weekend, but Delhi city is still experiencing outstanding collections, with 30 lakhs nett plus on Monday compared to 50 lakhs nett on Friday, a reduction of less than 40%.
Honsla Rakh is expected to gross between 12 and 13 crores nett in its first week, making it the highest-grossing Punjabi film since the pandemic, with low competition in Punjab and Delhi until Diwali, which might push it above the 20 crore nett level. Honsla Rakh’s nett collections in India to date are as follows.
Day 1, Friday: 2.55 cr nett
Day 2, Saturday: 2.30 cr nett
Day 3, Sunday: 2.80 cr nett
Day 4, Monday: 1.37 cr nett
Total: 9.02 cr nett
