Despite facing competition from Ayushmann Khurrana's comedy Dream Girl, Chhichhore has been performing consistently well at the box office. Positive word-of-mouth had a role to play in the film's success.

Trade analysts noted that Chhichhore can beat the lifetime earnings of MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. The film is Sushant's second-highest grosser in terms of first-day opening sales. It has beaten the opening numbers of his previous releases, Kedarnath and Shuddh Desi Romance.

Here are the latest box office figures for Chhichhore.

Chhichhore follows a group of college friends — Anni (Sushant), Maya (Shraddha), Sexa (Varun Sharma), Derek (Tahir Raj Bhasin), Acid (Naveen Polishetty), Mummy (Tushar Pandey), and Bevda (Saharsh Kumar Shukla). The film creates "a world where one meets interesting characters, shares great times and becomes friends for life."

Nitesh recently told Mid-Day that Chhichhore aims to spread suicide prevention awareness through its story. He also hoped that the film gains a tax-free status so that more youngsters could watch it.
