Actor Priyanka Chopra’s comeback Hindi film, The Sky Is Pink has recorded low numbers in its opening weekend. The film also starring, 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 rationalized 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 Sky Is Pink got damped by Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker and Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff’s War, both of which had released last week on October 2. 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.
Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink is a love story of a couple (Priyanka and Farhan) spanning 25 years which is narrated by their teenage daughter – Aisha (Zaira).
