Despite competition from Ashutosh Gowariker's historical drama Panipat and holdover films, Pati Patni Aur Woh has remained steadfast at the box office.
After four days at the domestic box office, Pati Patni Aur Woh has made Rs 41.64 crore. Led by Kartik Aaryan, Ananya Panday, and Bhumi Pednekar, the romantic comedy earned Rs 14.51 crore on Sunday, followed by Rs 5.70 crore on Monday. Trade analysts expect the film to easily slide pass the Rs 50 crore mark this week.
Despite competition from Ashutosh Gowariker's historical drama Panipat and holdover films, Pati Patni Aur Woh has remained steadfast at the box office. Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics, Pati Patni Aur Woh has attracted the youth as well as families to cinemas.
Box Office India notes Aaryan's top grosser so far has been Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, so Pati Patni Aur Woh may not be able to match up. The film will only have two more weeks at the box office, after which Salman Khan's Dabangg 3 will make its way to theatres.
