Box Office: Punjabi Movie 'Saunkan Saunkne' Scored A Blockbuster Opening Weekend

Chandigarh, May 16 - The Punjabi film industry is shining bright like never before with back-to-back blockbusters over the past few months. After testing the recent success with Honsla Rakh, Qismat 2, and Chal Mera Putt 2, the latest romantic-comedy film, Saunkan Saunkne, has set an all-time record for a Punjabi movie on the opening weekend.

Directed by Amarjit Singh Saron, who also directed the last year's blockbuster Honsla Rakh, Saunkan Saunkne scored 9.65 crores net in its opening weekend, which is the highest-ever for a Punjabi movie. The film beat the record of Shadaa (2019) which had collected 9.15 crore net in the first weekend.

Saunkan Saunkne, starring Ammy Virk, Sargun Mehta, and Nimrat Khaira, grew over the weekend after taking the opening of 2.25 crores net. The movie received excellent reviews which helped it to jump approx. 47% on Saturday for 3.30 crores net. On Sunday, the movie was at its peak and scored 4.10 crores which is probably the highest single-day box office collection for a Punjabi film.

At the overseas box office, Saunkan Saunkne has scored Rs 6.90 crores gross in the first weekend, taking the total worldwide collection of the film to 18.10 crores gross. There was a time about 6-7 years ago when Punjabi movies used to earn blockbuster status with a lifetime collection of 4-5 crores, and now, tripling it in the opening weekend itself, is really heartening to see.

The movie is produced by Sargun Mehta, Ravi Dubey, and Jatin Sethi, and distributed by Zee Studios. It also stars Nirmal Rishi, Kaka Kautki, and Sukhwinder Chahal, among others in key roles.
