Uri – The Surgical Strike box office collection day 27: Vicky Kaushal’s movie is steady and unstoppable

Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam, Paresh Rawal and Mohit Raina-starrer Uri: The Surgical Strike is all set to enter the Rs 200 crore club at the domestic box office. The film, which released on January 11, is currently ruling the ticket windows and how! Despite getting normal reviews from critics, Uri has managed to fare exceptionally well, not just in India, but overseas too. In fact, at the worldwide box office, the Vicky Kaushal-starrer is slowly heading towards the Rs 300 crore mark, which is phenomenal considering the film has been made on a budget of Rs 25 – 30 crore.

Coming back to the Indian box office, Uri has earned Rs 197.88 crore so far. After a fantastic fourth weekend, the movie has had a steady fourth week, raking in more than Rs 2 crore on each day. And with Uri: The Surgical Strike set to add more than Rs 2 crore once again on day 28, we are it will breach the Rs 200 crore barrier tomorrow (February 07). It will make the Aditya Dhar-directorial the first mid-budget film to achieve this feat. Huge, isn’t it? The josh is most certainly high! And Vicky must be on cloud nine as Uri gave him his first Rs 100 crore and Rs 200 crore movie.

Though Kangana Ranaut’s ambitious project Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi currently running in theatres along with Sonam Kapoor’s unusual love story Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, they haven’t really affected Uri’s business at the box office. In fact, it’s the other way round. Both Manikarnika and Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga are finding it tough to survive because of Uri: The Surgical Strike’s fantastic run at the box office. Anyway, stay tuned to Cine Blitz for more Uri updates.

Ajay Devgn has been in the film industry for over two decades and even today he is as entertaining as he was when he started his journey back in 1991. However, in the past few years, the talented actor has established himself as a bankable star. He is someone who can easily carry a film on his shoulders and get cash registers ringing. No wonder, he is one the busiest actors in Bollywood today. From working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali to teaming up with Rohit Shetty, Devgn has worked with various filmmakers and has also proved his versatility as an actor. In a nutshell, he is a complete package.

In fact, Ajay’s fan base has also increased lately because of the projects that he has been doing. His latest release Total Dhamaal arrived in the theatres yesterday, February 22, and got off to a good start. The comic caper, which co-stars Madhuri Dixit Nene, Anil Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi and few others, ended up earning Rs 16. 50 crore on day 1 which we think is mighty impressive.

While we are sure Total Dhamaal will continue to draw the audience at the cinema halls, over the years Ajay have delivered many blockbusters. In fact, Golmaal Again, which came out in 2017, is his highest grosser in India till date. Apart from Golmaal Again, check out how his last 10 films did at the box office and you’ll know why Ajay is considered a force to reckon with in Bollywood.

Coming back to Total Dhamaal, it’s the third film in the successful Dhamaal franchise directed by Indra Kumar. And next, Ajay will be seen in the historical drama Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior. Directed by Om Raut, the film has already gone on floors and also stars Sanjay Dutt, Saif Ali Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Kajol in pivotal roles. The film is scheduled to release this year on November 22. So are you guys excited for Ajay’s next? Tell us in the comments section below.
