As per Box Office India, Puaada held well on Friday with Rs 46 lakhs while the romantic drama showed a solid growth of 50% on Saturday, minting Rs 70 lakhs.
As India celebrated 75th Independence Day on Sunday, more theaters were added allowing more families to turn up at the theaters which was crucial for the film. As per early estimates, Puaada should be collecting some where between 80-90 lakhs, bring the first weekend total to Rs 2.30-2.40 crore. 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.
Puaada has done well in UK and New Zealand adding £400k in three days, bringing the overall collections to around Rs 7 crore which is excellent as the budget of Puaada seems to be around ₹ 8 Cr * Approx.
