For any film, big or small, Mondays' box office numbers play a huge role in deciding the fate of that film in the coming week. A film is most likely to make good numbers over the weekend of its release due to the holiday factor but Mondays decide whether the film will sustain through the week and after or will show a dip in collections as the week ends.
Ajay Devgn-starrer De De Pyaar De (DDPD) has sustained strongly on its first weekday. The film made Rs 6.19 crore on Monday, which denotes the long run of the film in cinema houses. If we compare its Monday's collections with its day one (which is Rs 9.01 crore), the weekday numbers are 68.70 per cent of the film's first day earnings. This makes DDPD stand at fourth position as far as the Friday-Monday comparison is concerned.
In 2019, URI: The Surgical Strike was the only film till now whose Monday numbers are higher than that of its first day. It collected Rs 7.79 crore on Friday and Rs 10.40 crore on Monday; making Monday's collection 33.50 per cent higher than that of its first day. It is followed by Luka Chuppi, whose Monday's collections were 98.40 per cent of its day one and Badla whose Monday's collections were 77.12 per cent of its day one earnings.
