Soorma was the sole big release last week and the Diljit Dosanjh-starrer came out two weeks after Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju released. Both these factors combined seem to have helped Soorma at the box office. The film has collected a little over Rs 19 crore at the box office in the first six days.

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh has tweeted the film’s business figures and he seems hopeful about its future. He tweeted, “#Soorma should collect ₹ 21 cr in Week 1, as per trending... Weekend 2 is crucial... Fri 3.20 cr, Sat 5.05 cr, Sun 5.60 cr, Mon 2 cr, Tue 1.94 cr, Wed 1.77 cr. Total: ₹ 19.56 cr. India biz.”

After a dismal start on Friday, Soorma slightly picked up on Saturday and maintained the collections on Sunday. The film earned Rs 5.05 crore and Rs 5.6 crore on Saturday and Sunday respectively. Based on the real life story of former India hockey captain Sandeep Singh, Soorma is directed by Shaadi Ali and produced by Chitrangada Singh.

Talking about the film, Diljit said in an earlier interview, “A role like ‘Soorma’ happens once in a lifetime. I learnt to play hockey from scratch. And it had to be hockey on a competent level. I was playing Sandeep Singh. I couldn’t afford to look like an amateur.”

“I learnt the game from Sandeep Paaji and and his elder brother (Bikram Singh). By the time I was ready to face the camera I was confident of my game,” added Diljit.
