It has made a total of Rs 36.6 crore within three days.

Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma’s latest film ‘Sui Dhaaga: Made In India’ looks set to pick up as after a slow start it has almost doubled in its opening weekend collection. It has made a total of Rs 36.6 crore within three days. What’s promising is that the film will also get a national holiday on Tuesday that should fuel the earnings. Read film's review here.  

Film critic and analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted: “#SuiDhaaga witnesses EXCELLENT GROWTH... Day 2 + Day 3 biz is a clear indicator that its target audience [families] have helped multiply the biz... Day 3 is *almost double* of Day 1... Fri 8.30 cr, Sat 12.25 cr, Sun 16.05 cr. Total: ₹ 36.60 cr [2500 screens]. India biz.”


Talking about the film getting a national holiday soon after release, Taran said it’s a “big bonus”. He wrote in another tweet: “Although Day 4 [Mon] - the first working day after the weekend - is akin to an exam for all movies, #SuiDhaaga has an advantage of a big holiday tomorrow [Day 5; Gandhi Jayanti], so the real test will be from Day 6 [Wed] onwards... Biz on the national holiday is a BIG BONUS.”


‘Sui Dhaaga: Made In India’ directed by Sharat Katariya released on the same day as Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Pataakha’ starring Sanya Malhotra and Radhika Madan. ‘Pataakha’, however, received a lukewarm response at the box office. 

Taran wrote: “#Pataakha witnesses escalation in biz, but the 3-day total is low... It’s all about maintaining the pace today [Day 4]… Day 5 [Tue] is a national holiday, hence the biz should shoot up again... Fri 90 lakhs, Sat 1.40 cr, Sun 1.75 cr. Total: 4.05 cr [875 screens]. India biz.”
