Chhapaak box office collection- Day 3:
Deepika Padukone’s Chhapaak has been unable to impress the audience. Meghna Gulzar’s film is struggling to attract cine-goers to the theatres,
Meghna Gulzar’s directorial film Chhapaak stars Deepika Padukone in the lead role. The film is based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, who was attacked with acid at 15.
The film received rave reviews from critics but the box office numbers suggest Chhapaak is not a popular film among the masses. On Day 1, the film earned just Rs 4.77 crore and made Rs 6.90 crore on its second day of release. According to trade analysts, the film is doing good in the metro cities but is not receiving a great response in tier-2 cities. Chhapaak earned Rs 7.35 crore on Sunday, thus taking the total collection of the film to Rs 19.02 crore till now.
In Chhapaak, Deepika Padukone plays the character of Malti. The film also stars Vikrant Massey, who is seen playing the role of Amol, an NGO owner who works for acid attack survivors.
While Chhapaak is being applauded by critics and Bollywood celebrities, the film seems to have not been able to impress the audience. IndiaToday.in’s reviewer Ananya Bhattacharya gave the film 4 out of 5 stars and called it an important film.
The film received tough competition from Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, which is unstoppable at the box office. In just three days of its release, the film is expected to earn Rs 50 crore. Apart from these two films, Rajinikanth’s Darbar also hit screens last week. Darbar is said to be a film by a Rajini fan for all the Rajini fans.
Coming back to Chhapaak, Deepika Padukone’s performance in the film is being called the actress’s best so far. While the box office numbers in the coming days will tell if the film is a hit or not, Chhapaak has certainly touched many hearts. It is a beautiful tribute to hundreds of courageous and resilient women who suffered an acid attack and inspires them to remain hopeful.
