Excellent in #Maharashtra [#Mumbai, parts of #CP and #Nizam circuits]... Glowing word of mouth should ensure solid growth on Day 2 and 3... Fri ₹ 15.10 cr. #India biz.”

“#Chhapaak is ordinary on Day 1... Collects well at select high-end multiplexes... Biz at Tier-2 and 3 cities and also mass circuits is way below the mark... Growth on Day 2 and 3 crucial for a respectable weekend total... Fri ₹ 4.77 cr. #India biz,” he wrote.

What is Chhapaak and Tanhaji all about

While, Chhapaak is the story of acid attack survivor Malti and her fight to get justice and her call for over-the-counter sale of acid . The film is loosely based on Delhi’s Laxmi Aggarwal’s life.


Directed by Om Raut, Tanhaji The Unsung Warrior brings Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan and Kajol together after a long time. The film is a period saga that traces the story of Tanhaji Malusare (Ajay), a subedaar in Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s army.

Meanwhile, both Tanhaji and Chhapaak are facing tough competition from two South Indian film releases, namely Rajinikanth's Darbar and Mahesh Babu's Sarileru Neekevvaru. Both movies are working well not only in India but also in the USA.
