The much-awaited flick Veere Di Wedding has opened up positively at the box office.
The latest movie, which is another addition to the string of female-centered movies, features biggies including Kareena Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor.
The film earned Rs 10.70 crore on the first day of its release. Helmed by Shashanka Ghosh, the flick is about four childhood besties who join up to be present at a wedding ceremony. The movie also stars talented actresses Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania.
Co-producer of the movie Ekta Kapoor posted a special message on her Twitter account revealing the earnings of the flick on its very first day.
She tweeted, “We have just got d nos hot out of the oven! The all India box office total for #VeerediWedding is 10.70crores on day one!!!”
Unlike other movie’s BO numbers, the profits of the flick got shared by Ekta herself.
She explained, “I wanted to tweet d nos myself even before d official release as it’s been a struggle convincing ppl that films r gender agnostic! Picture sirf teen cheezo ke vajah se chalti hai entertainment entertainment aur entertainment !!! Rheaaaa ruchikaaaa this one is urs.”
Thrilled with the gigantic opening of their movie at the box office, Sonam and Swara showcased their pleasure on Twitter.
Swara made a tweet, “OMG!!!!! Yaaaayyyyyyyyeeeeeeee!! 10.70 CR on Day 01. Double digit opening for an all women led film.. @ektaravikapoor @RheaKapoor @RuchikaaKapoor you slayed! Veeres slayed! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾💕💕💥💥💥💥.”
Sonam tweeted, “Ekta we all broke the glass ceiling!!!”
Film trade forecaster Girish Johar had formerly forecasted that the flick would witness an opening of about Rs 4.5 crore.
“We have seen how Bollywood fans are now receptive to female-centric films like Raazi, Queen or Padmaavat for that matter. As long as the good content is involved, the film is bound to do good. From the looks of it, the film is a fun, rib-tickling comedy and it will cater to an audience just looking to have a good time at the theatres,” Girish Johar stated.
Veere Di Wedding bagged a positive rating from Indian Express’ movie reviewer Shubhra Gupta.
In her appraisal, Shubhra Gupta stated, “Net net, Veere Di Wedding is a fun ride, which squeezes past its creaky tropes and partial squelchiness by some smart casting choices, and perky performances. And lines which connect. ‘Shaadi toh foundation hai jhagde ki’, says a character, and I found myself chuckling. As did many people around me.”
