Mumbai, January 11 - 83 collected Rs 1.47 crore at the domestic box office on Sunday and entered the prestigious Rs 100 crore club. Box office analyst Taran Adarsh has stated that ideally, the film should have crossed the Rs 100 crore mark by its second weekend itself which fell during the Christmas and New Year holidays. He added that the film not being accepted by non-metro audiences proved to be a roadblock for the film's success at the box office.
The film becomes the 4th Consecutive 100cr grosser at the box office for Ranveer Singh as, before 83, his Gully Boy with 139cr collections, Simmba with 240cr collections, and Padmaavat with 302cr(all versions) collections were his earlier consecutive 100cr plus grossers. The record for the most consecutive 100cr Grosser belongs to the Superstar Salman khan with unprecedented 15 films on the trot of 100cr plus Grossers.
The performance of the film was not great but 100cr plus Grossers even after being rejected is a great sign for the film especially when the film is on a good run overseas. 83 had hit cinemas on December 24 last year. The film, also starring Deepika Padukone, tells the story of the Indian squad that won the 1983 Cricket World Cup. 83 has been released across 3,741 screens across the country.
83 and been directed by Kabir Khan and produced by Deepika Padukone, Kabir Khan, Vishnuvardhan Induri, Sajid Nadiadwala, Reliance Entertainment, and 83 Film Ltd.
