Box Office – Diljit Dosanjh once again shows his supremacy as top Punjabi superstar, Honsla Rakh takes a blockbuster opening (Photo Credit : Wikipedia)Punjabi movies continue to do well in the north, and with the latest release Honsla Rakh, it kicks off a blockbuster. Audiences in Punjab and Delhi NCR are ready to step into the theaters and while the box office performances of some of the recent Punjabi films have shown this, Honsla Rakh’s great opening has only further cemented the belief.
Released on the occasion of Dussehra, the film Honsla Rakh opened at over 2.50 crores* and that is simply excellent as no Punjabi film has ever collected that much. The promo of the movie was funny and on top of that, Diljit Dosanjh is a top superstar, with most of his new releases setting newer records. That has happened again to Honsla Rakh which again shows that he is a top superstar of Punjabi movies with consistent results every time.
With a start like this one would expect the opening weekend to be between 8-10 crores. Since yesterday was a national holiday of Dussehra, you can not expect big jumps today and tomorrow. But even a marginal improvement in the collections would spell good news for this family entertainer Honsla Rakh, who stars Sonam Bajwa and Shehnaaz Gill. Further good news, however, is that Punjab has now further relaxed the occupation rule from 50%, which has now been increased to 66%. That should help the footsteps in the coming days too.
