On its third day (Sunday), URI once again witnessed incredible growth. As per the report in Box Office India, URI 3rd day box office collection would be around 15 crores. This takes the first weekend total to 35 crores.
Estimated to be made on a budget of around 30 crores, URI is all set to become first hit of 2019. Like last year, this year too the content based film has emerged as a hit at the box office.
It would be interesting to see how URI performs on weekdays. Last year many small budget movies like Stree, Raazi, Badhaai Ho entered 10 crore club. It would be interesting to see if URI too achieve this feat.
