Street Dancer 3D vs Panga box office day 3: Varun-Shraddha’s film has lower weekend than Kalank at Rs 41.23 cr, Kangana’s film earns Rs 14.91 cr

Street Dancer 3D vs Panga box office: Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor’s dance film went on to collect around Rs 41.23 cr in its first weekend whereas Kangana Ranaut’s film collected Rs 14.91 crores.

Street Dancer 3D, starring Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor as dancers, had a terrific weekend despite releasing alongside Kangana Ranaut’s Panga and facing competition from Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. The Remo D’Souza film collected 17.76 crore on Sunday. This takes its total to around Rs 41.23 crore.

Crediting the Republic Day mood for the growth, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, “StreetDancer3D puts up a healthy total in its weekend… Saw an upswing on Day 3, aided by Republic Day holiday… Strong in mass belt… Needs to maintain the pace on weekdays… Fri 10.26 cr, Sat 13.21 cr, Sun 17.76 cr. Total: Rs 41.23 cr. India biz.”

The first weekend collections of the film were, however, lesser than the three-day collections of Varun’s last film, Kalank. It had collected Rs 43 crore in its first weekend.

Panga collected an estimated Rs 6.60 crore on its first Sunday which takes its total weekend collection to Rs 14.91 crore. The film had opened below expectations at Rs 2.70 crore but showed improvement due to positive word of mouth. Sharing the collections of the film, Taran wrote on Twitter, “Panga fares below expectations, despite glowing word of mouth… Biz escalated on Day 2, but the jump was missing on Day 3 [Republic Day]… Needs to trend very strongly on weekdays for a firm footing… Fri 2.70 cr, Sat 5.61 cr, Sun 6.60 cr. Total: Rs 14.91 cr. India biz.”

Tanhaji continues to hold fort at the box office with extraordinary collections of around Rs 12 crore nett on Sunday. The film now stands at a total of Rs 224.15 crore. It has collected around Rs 26.90 crore in its third weekend, which is reportedly the fourth highest ever after Bahubali – The Conclusion, Dangal and PK.

Talking about how Tanhaji could affect the two new releases, film exhibitor Akshay Rathi had told Hindustan Times, “Tanhaji is obviously a factor as it’s doing extremely well and was even declared tax-free in Maharashtra. A huge chunk of its business is coming from the state and can definitely impact the two films. In that sense, its a three-way fight between Street Dancer 3D, Panga and Tanhaji.”

Film trade analyst Girish Johar had added, “Tanhaji is very strong in Mumbai and Gujrat circuit. But if the two films get a positive word of mouth, they will definitely get the first preference at the theatres. But if any of the two fails to impress, Tanhaji can gain in that scenario.”
