Since the reopening of cinemas in the country’s northern areas, Punjabi cinema has been on a roll. The Ammy Virk and Sargun Mehta starrer Qismat 2 is on track to become the highest-grossing Punjabi film in India since the pandemic, with a total of 13.50 crore nett. In its second weekend, the film grossed about 3 crore nett and has become a sensation in Delhi.
On Saturday and Sunday, collections in Delhi city were roughly 40-45 percent of those in East Punjab, which is incredible. These kinds of ratios have never been seen in a Punjabi film before. The fact that there are no big Hindi releases helps Qismat 2 obtain more screenings in the capital’s key multiplexes, but the content has to work as well, and Qismat 2 has been well received in Delhi.
The film will surpass the box office performance of Chal Mera Putt 2, which is the highest-grossing film in India since the pandemic, albeit the figures for East Punjab are unlikely to surpass those of Chal Mera Putt 2, which had a near-three-crore total before the pandemic.
