Newly released Punjabi movie ‘Proud To Be A Sikh 2’ collected low box office income on tenth day of its release. Opening to a decent occupancy in first week, the film could not receive huge public response in 2nd week and ended up earning less box office collection in ten days.
Featuring renowned actors Amritpal Billa and Ravinder Singh in the leading roles, the latest drama film took a decent start to its box office journey in India. Managing to get a satisfactory response in Punjab and nearby regions, where Sikh community is densely populated, the film earned Rs 1 crore total box office collection in first weekend.
After grossing single digit box office income in initial three days, Satdeep Singh’s directorial venture failed to maintain consistency in its performance at domestic box office. Facing poor theatre occupancy in the week days, the Punjabi-language celluloid pocketed low earnings in the first week.
The movie, which featured Gursimran Kaur and Sunny Gill in supporting roles, did not manage to showcase better performance in central part of the country. Releasing on very less number of screens in central India, the Punjabi flick witnessed severe box office competition with the latest Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam films.
The film released on very less number of screens in south Indian states. As the newly released south Indian movies acquired strong hold in the cinema halls across the Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Tamil speaking regions, the second part of ‘Proud To Be A Sikh’ could not attract maximum audiences in the theatres and failed to earn huge monetary profit.
In Maharashtra, the Punjabi offering confronted with Marathi films and did not grab much response from the movie-watchers. Witnessing tremendous box office competition with Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan starrer latest Bollywood movie ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’, the Punjabi celluloid could not divulge the attention of major chunk of spectators in Marathi speaking state.
Apart from garnering dull income in the domestic arena, ‘Proud To Be A Sikh 2’ faced massive box office clash with new Hollywood movies in overseas. Failing to catch the attention of a big audience in the foreign countries, the Punjabi film did not earn the expected box office collection in international market.
