Soorma starring Diljit Dosanjh, Taapsee Pannu and Angad Bedi released worldwide. The movie opens with decent numbers in north India as Diljit has his own fan following in north especially Punjab. Taapsee Pannu last few movies did really well at the box office. The movie-like Pink and Judwaa 2 were commercially and critically successful movie. But still, she does not get the star status yet which can help a movie to get a great opening.
The movie opens with 15-20% occupancy in north India. The occupancy was more than 40% in Punjab alone. The other market like CP Bihar, Mumbai and South are below average. Soorma collected 4.5 crores on its first Friday which is a decent collection for a non-star cast film. Soorma is made on a budget of 25 crores plus, so the movie has to show a good jump on the Saturday and Sunday to cover the cost of the film through theatrical revenue.
All the star cast is not a well-known face in south India. But Mumbai could perform better on Saturday and Sunday.
Soorma is a biography based on an Indian Hockey player Sandeep Singh which has gone through many ups and downs in his career. Directed by Shaad Ali and produced by Sony Pictures Networks and Chitrangda Singh.
