After putting up an excellent show and racking up ₹ 10.70 crores on its opening day, Ekta Kapoor’s all women-led film Veere Di Wedding jumped considerably on day 2 and minted another ₹ 12.25 crores at the cash counter, taking its two-day collection to a cumulative ₹ 22.95 crores. The film is expected to improve its performance further on Sunday, which means that in all likelihood Veere Di Wedding will be closing out its first weekend with an outstanding income of approximately ₹ 35 crores.
Starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania in prominent roles, Veere Di Wedding revolves around four well-educated urban girls who refuse to bow down to any societal pressure and live their lives on their own terms and conditions.
There are many critics who have criticised the film for being too bold and using a stream of expletives and cuss words. However, that has not stopped the audience from pouring in in cinema halls in large numbers. If the movie continues to perform well during the weekdays as well, it will be another ₹ 100 crores grosser for Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures after Ek Villain. (2014)
Also starring Sumeet Vyas, Veere Di Wedding, directed by Shashanka Ghosh, hit screens on 1st June.
