After making good money on Valentine’s Day with 1.85 crores, Badhaai Do needed to do well on Tuesday as well. After all, the film’s start was just about okay at 1.65 crores, so there’s still some room to cover for the film. As a result, a sharp drop in Tuesday’s collections was unavoidable.
Fortunately for the movie, this was indeed the case, as it still managed to gross 1.12 crores. Though 1.25 crores would have been ideal, the film should run well for the remainder of the weekdays, bringing in at least 1 crore each on Wednesday and Thursday.
Badhaai Do has so far grossed 10.79 crores and is expected to surpass the 12.50 crore mark in its first week. Of course, in the pre-pandemic age, this would have been the first weekend’s total for the film. These are, however, different times, and even minor victories should be embraced. Taking things one step at a time, the Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar movie should now have a lifetime gross of 20 crores at the box office.
