Released on 24 December, Kabir Khan’s ’83’, starring Ranveer Singh, saw a slight drop in the second week’s collections at the box office. However, it had managed a decent collection at the end of its first week but couldn’t create a storm. The film took advantage of the Christmas holiday, which added considerably to BO. The film that chronicles the Indian cricket team’s enthralling 1983 World Cup victory is estimated to collect Rs 6 crore on its Day 5, states boxofficeindia.com. The total four-day collection stands around Rs 58 crore.
“83 (Hindi) has dropped further on Tuesday with collections set to be around six crore net which will take the film to around 57.50 crore net. The film has an issue with Delhi cinemas shut down tomorrow, and many are closed today itself. It remains to be seen if there is a loss in Delhi city today or not, but elsewhere the film is seeing drops which should not happen in this Xmas week especially as the collections are generally low,” the BO report stated.
However, ’83’ is currently garnering immense love from cricket and Bollywood lovers who are cherishing the Ranveer Singh-starrer. Calling it magnificent, megastar Rajinikanth is the latest to join the list of people who have lavished praise on ’83.’ Rajinikanth took to Twitter and wrote, “#83TheMovie wow what a movie… magnificent!!! Many congratulations to the producers.”
Helmed by Kabir Khan, 83 narrates Team India’s win in the 1983 cricket world cup. The film features Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev and Deepika Padukone as his wife, Romi Dev. The star cast of the film 83 shot with the natural world cup when they reenacted the victory scene. The film also has surprise elements for fans as it features actress Neena Gupta and former cricketer Kapil Dev.
