Box-Office update: Veere Di Wedding opens on a steady note of 35%; Bhavesh Joshi Superhero fails to take off

This week, we see the much talked about film ‘Veere Di Wedding‘ hitting screens. Starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania, the film is said to be a coming of age flick about four women. Simultaneously, we also see the release of Sonam’s brother Harshvardhan Kapoor’s film ‘Bhavesh Joshi Superhero‘ that promises to be a thrilling ride. But which of the two new releases will make it big at the box office is the question.

Reports state that ‘Veere Di Wedding’ has opened on a steady note with occupancy rates during morning shows being pegged between 30-35%. On the other hand, ‘Bhavesh Joshi Superhero’ has quite literally failed to take off with the occupancy rate hovering in the single digit arena, while last week’s release ‘Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran’ continues to hold strong with the occupancy rate on its second Friday being pegged at 15%.

On the whole, with positive reviews, the Shashanka Ghosh directed film ‘Veere Di Wedding’ is expected to see good growth over the weekend with the female audience base in metros patronizing the film over other releases. As for ‘Bhavesh Joshi Superhero’, the film is likely to face an uphill task of posting halfway decent figures at the box office.
