Trade guru Taran Adarsh shared box office update of Vidya Balan starrer Tumhari Sulu. The film saw good growth in its collection on day 2. Taran tweeted, “#TumhariSulu witnesses a SUPERB 60.63% growth on Sat… Biz on Sun will only go higher… Fri 2.87 cr, Sat 4.61 cr. Total: ₹ 7.48 cr. India biz.”
Not all superheroes live in a bat cave and hatch a plan to destroy Steppenwolf. In Tumhari Sulu, Vidya Balan plays an innocent and progressive woman, who is a homemaker by day and an RJ by night. In the film, she is a hero in her own accord. Much like how it had been predicted by trade gurus, the film managed to earn Rs 2.87 crores on day 1.
For any other movie that may not count as a huge opening, but when the competition is between a popular superhero film Justice League and a small budgeted Tumhari Sulu, Vidya Balan’s film is definitely off to a good start. A positive word-of-mouth could actually turn the tables for Vidya Balan’s film.

With films like Kahaani, The Dirty Picture, Begum Jaan, Vidya Balan too has managed to develop a strong fanbase of her own. Film critic Shubhra Gupta said in her review in The Indian Express,” What’s good about ‘Tumhari Sulu’ is that despite her being a product of a certain kind of family and background, she is very much ‘Hamari Sullu’. Any woman, of a similar provenance, can identify with Sulu strongly: can she do something that will add to her own sense of self without her family and husband, encouraging as he may be, without guilt-tripping her all the way?.”
