Kangana Ranaut's Panga released on 24 January alongside Varun Dhawan's Street Dancer 3D.
Kangana Ranaut's new release Panga has made Rs 14.91 crore over the opening weekend. The film had a decent start at the domestic box office with Rs. 2.70 crore on Friday, followed by Rs 5.61 crore on Saturday and Rs 6.60 crore on Sunday. There was a slight growth in earnings on Day 2, but despite a positive word-of-mouth and a national holiday there was no increase in Day 3's revenue.
According to Box Office India, Panga witnessed the best reception in Delhi NCR but could have performed better in Mumbai and Bengaluru. The drama released alongside Street Dancer 3D, which has made Rs 41.23 crore in its three day run.
Panga revolves around a retired kabbadi player, essayed by Ranaut, who is hoping to make a comeback in the game. Directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, also features Richa Chadha, Neena Gupta, Jassie Gill, and Pankaj Tripathi in key roles.

In a recent interview with Firstpost, Tiwari had spoken about her film: “Panga is not a sports drama in its purest form. It is a human story and just like the characters in my previous films they are all real and relatable people. It isn’t a biopic or based on any real person. It’s a very universal idea."
Panga is among the many female-led films being churned out by Bollywood. Earlier in January, Meghna Gulzar released Chhapaak, which chronicled the journey of Deepika Padukone as Malti, an acid attack survivor.
