Met with heart-warming reviews. Puaada has done well in the East Punjab with Rs 50-55 lakhs where it saw a release in 70 theaters, only allowing 50% occupancy. Puaada has also released in the city of Delhi, bringing Rs 10 lakh with 50% occupancy. As per BoxOffice India, Puaada has also 2800 tickets in advance at the PVR theaters, bringing the first day collections to somewhere around Rs 65 lakhs.
The numbers are still impressive considering the 50% occupancy rate but if it would have been 100% occupancy, the figures would have shot up beating last Ammy Virk film Sufna released in Feb 2020.
As the 75th Independence Day falls on Sunday, more theaters are expected to be added allowing more families to turn up at the theaters which is crucial for the film. Puaada has done well in UK adding £15k while Canada showed nice response (final figures awaited) when it released on Thursday
Puaada is a romantic comedy film which is directed by Rupinder Chahal and produced by Brat Films. The budget of Puaada seems to be around ₹ 8 Cr * Approx
