‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ has achieved a milestone that not many would’ve imagined when the movie released almost a month back. The Vicky Kaushal-starrer has hit a double century at the box office in domestic collections, becoming the first ‘mid-range film’ to do so. The lead actor was delighted and thanked the country for showering love on the film.
According to figures tweeted by trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the war drama hit the coveted mark on the last day of the fourth week. The movie also turned out to be the second-highest fourth week grosser ever behind ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’.
It had to be noted that the SS Rajamouli directorial's collections only in India from the Hindi version is more than Rs 500 crore. If ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ has earned on par, it shows that the cinegoers are watching it multiple times in big numbers. The movie had, however, beaten the Prabhas-starrer's collections of day 23 and day 24.
Nevertheless, the Aditya Dhar directorial's collections in the fourth week are higher than movies in the Rs 300-crore club like ‘Dangal’, ‘Sanju’, ‘PK’, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, ‘Padmaavat’ and ‘Sultan’.
The trade analyst added that the movie has ‘ample stamina’ to even cross Rs 225 crore. He had on Thursday tweeted that 'Uri: The Surgical Strike' will be the first ‘mid-range film’ to enter the Rs 200-crore club.
Meanwhile, the lead actor Vicky Kaushal conveyed his gratitude to the country and wrote, 'Thank You India.'
