Chup Box Office Collection Report
In Chup: Revenge of the Artist, R Balki's direction and writing have won unanimous praise. Many showered Chup with lavish praises and the film opened to an extremely positive response.
According to Box Office India, "Chup has taken a fair opening though in terms of occupancy it is good as morning shows record 50-60% occupancy on average. It is better in the bigger multiplexes. As the solid occupancy is driven by lower ticket rates and collections will not be as high as they normally would be with this occupancy.
Still it will be a decent first-day number which should go over 2 crore nett or even 2.50 crore nett. The film would not have gotten this sort of start if it was at normal rates so the film has got a huge benefit from lower rates. But it remains to be seen what happens post-Friday when rates go back to normal as it will have to find an audience then also," BOI added.
