Ayushmann Khurrana’s latest film Article 15 earned Rs 3.97 crore on Monday, taking its total to Rs 24.01 crore. It had opened with Rs 5.02 crore and earned Rs 7.25 crore on the second day. On Sunday it minted Rs 7.77 crore
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the film’s box office figures on his Twitter handle. He wrote, “#Article15 is super-strong on the crucial Mon… Braves #KabirSingh juggernaut + torrential rains in #Mumbai, yet stays solid at key metros… Eyes ₹ 34 cr [+/-] in Week 1… Fri 5.02 cr, Sat 7.25 cr, Sun 7.77 cr, Mon 3.97 cr. Total: ₹ 24.01 cr. India biz.”
Article 15 is directed by Anubhav Sinha, who also helmed last year’s Mulk. Like Mulk, which was based on communal divisions, Article 15 is also based on a social issue. It is about the caste-based discrimination that is prevalent in some parts of the country.
Adarsh had said in another tweet earlier, “Ayushmann Khurrana versus Ayushmann Khurrana… *Opening Weekend* biz…
2018: #BadhaaiHo ₹ 45.70 cr [extended 4-day weekend]
2019: #Article15 ₹ 20.04 cr
2018: #AndhaDhun ₹ 15 cr
2017: #ShubhMangalSaavdhan ₹ 14.46 cr
2017: #BareillyKiBarfi ₹ 11.52 cr
Due to mostly positive reviews and good word-of-mouth, Article 15 is expected to stay consistent in the foreseeable future.
