Actor Priyanka Chopra’s comeback Hindi film, The Sky Is Pink has registered low numbers in its opening weekend. The film, which also stars Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim, released this Friday, and managed to rake in Rs 10.7 crore in the first three days.

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh called the film’s performance ‘dull’. He shared the updated figures on Twitter on Monday. “#TheSkyIsPink is dull... Gathered momentum on Day 2 [Sat], but fell flat on Day 3 [Sun], more so towards evening shows... Even its target audience - multiplex crowd - didn’t embrace it wholeheartedly... Fri 2.50 cr, Sat 4 cr, Sun 4.20 cr. Total: ₹ 10.70 cr. #India biz,” he wrote in his tweet.


The film was crushed by Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker and Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff’sa War, both of which had released last week on October 2 (Wednesday). According to a report in Box Office India, while War made another Rs 31 crore in its second weekend, even Joker made more money than The Sky Is Pink in the last three days--Rs 11.5 crore. The latest figures take War’s collection to a total of Rs 257 crore and Joker’s to Rs 49 crore.
