Chandigarh: As per information from trade sources, Udta Punjab has got a good response for its first show in theaters across the country. Clearly, the box office controversy surrounding the movie has worked in its favor.
As per trade sources, the opening day collections of the movie are better than Housefull 3 in the Northern region. The latter did a business of Rs 16 crores on the first day. A movie generally has low earnings on the first day and picks up majorly on Saturday. Starring Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor, Diljit Dosanjh Udta Punjab seems to have bucked this trend, posting good revenue numbers on the opening day itself.
In Punjab, despite the tight security, the movie has managed to draw crowds at various locations. In Chandigarh, the movie tickets had sold out in advance on Friday with Housefull status for online bookings in almost all major multiplexes.
Critically too, despite the A Certificate from CBFC, Udta Punjab has received rave reviews with an average rating of 4 to 4.5 stars.
