Sher Shivraj starring Chinmay Mandlekar, Mukesh Rishi and others is another blockbuster in the making for the Marathi industry. After a good start, the film is enjoying a solid run at the box office. On the first Monday i.e. day 4 too, it is showing a superb hold.
Happy days are back at the box office! Even though Bollywood isn’t enjoying glorious innings, it’s the regional cinema which is attracting the crowd to theatres. After RRR and KGF Chapter 2, it’s the latest Marathi outing that is putting on a solid show despite limited screening.
Sher Shivraj released on 22nd April all across the Maharashtra state alongside Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey. Due to the clash and KGF Chapter 2 already running successfully in theatres, the Chinmay Mandlekar starrer got less number of screens. But despite all the odds, the film opened on a good note at the box office.
Based on one of the most important chapters during the reign of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Sher Shivraj made 1.05 crores on its opening day. Despite mixed reviews, the film is enjoying positive word-of-mouth and its effect was clearly seen as growth was seen on day 2 (1.45 crores) and day 3 (1.75 crores). In the weekend, a collection of 4.20 crores came in.
Now, as per early estimates flowing in, Sher Shivraj has managed a strong Monday with 1 crore* coming in. The estimated box office now stands at 5.20 crores*. This is a terrific hold considering the opening day was at 1.05 crores. It’s a clear effect of shows getting increased in theatres with theatre owners replacing Jersey with it. Many didn’t get it to watch during the weekend due to proper screening but now, as shows are getting increased, expect a rock-steady trend throughout weekdays.
Helmed by Digpal Lanjekar, Sher Shivraj also stars Mrinal Kulkarni, Digpal Lanjekar, Ajay Purkar and others.
