Spearheaded by Rajkumar Rao, Shraddha Kapoor, and other comedy stars, Stree was majorly dependent on the content. The comedy-horror film is exceeding the expectations of experts who predicted its first-day earing, 3-4 crores.
However, the film has already got good reviews with high ratings which added a hope of working great at Box Office. With an opening of 6.82 crores, Stree has just beat the word of mouth and works itself through the hints given in the trailer.
Taran Adarsh tweeted, “When numbers do the talking… #Stree surpasses the expectations and estimations and posts a SUPERB number on Day 1… Biz is expected to multiply over the weekend… Fri ₹ 6.82 cr. India biz… Hugely positive word of mouth has translated into BO numbers.”
Trade analyst, Girish Johar had earlier predicted that the film would earn Rs 3 crores but it turned out as a shocking amount.
He told indianexpress.com, “Horror comedy is a difficult genre as both, scaring people and making them laugh is a tough job. So, it all depends on how it is treated by the makers and how well the actors have done it. Now if Rajkummar and Pankaj Tripathi will be able to pull the audience to the theatres or not will be known shortly.”
Starring Rajkumar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor in a lead role along with Pankaj Tripathi Aparshakti Khurrana and Abhishek Banerjee, the film is a must watch. The producers of the film can breath easy after the last year directorial A Gentleman, which hasn’t worked wonder at Box Office.
For the actress, Shraddha Kapoor, the film can prove a game changer for her career as her earlier films hadn’t driven the audience to the theatres. Following the weekend, Stree can earn quite well.
