Vidya Balan’s film Tumhari Sulu has maintained a strong hold at the box office. The film, which released on November 17, has managed to win hearts of the audience. In fact, it is surpassing the mid-week challenge and heading to its second weekend successfully. The good word-of-mouth is transforming into box office numbers as well. The film has managed to register a total of Rs 18.23 crore collection at the box office.
The Suresh Triveni directorial managed to mint Rs 1.67 crore on Wednesday. But looking at the fact that there are no big releases this weekend, the film might continue to perform well.
While the team has been celebrating the film’s success, Vidya kept mum so far. In an Instagram post, the actor thanked the makers of the film for giving her the opportunity to be Sulu.

In her review, Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta had praised the performance of Vidya Balan. “Balan has played an RJ before, in Munnabhai, but that was like a showreel. Here, she channels her distinctive voice and full-bellied laughter to invest Sulu with real warmth. We see her tasting a space free of the restrictions she has lived with, and learning to spread her wings. We see her use her brains to talk to strange men, using a smart tightrope of being playful without lacing it with smut, which is far easier to do,” wrote Shubhra.
Tumhari Sulu also stars Neha Dhupia and Manav Kaul in the lead role. It introduced RJ Malishka, marking her debut Bollywood film.
