Biopics, especially the ones based around sports personalities seem to hit a chord with the audiences instantly. Who doesn’t like a good inspirational story? Soorma is no different. Soorma is based on the legendary Hockey player and captain Sandeep Singh. Punjabi star Diljit Dosanjh plays Sandeep Singh and the film is doing well, both critically as well as the audiences. Despite the competition posed by the Marvel’s superhero film Ant-man and the Wasp, Soorma seems to be holding its ground well at the box-office.
As per the tweets of famous trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Soorma can easily hold its place over the weekdays at a sizable collection. At this moment, Soorma’s collection at the box-office stand at Rs. 15.85 cr. Soorma’s collection since its release has been as follows: Friday the film closed Rs. 3.20 cr, Saturday at Rs. 5.05 cr, Sunday’s collection was Rs. 5.60 cr, while Monday gathered Rs. 2 cr, thus making the total earnings of Soorma add up to Rs. 15.85 cr. Apart from the Hollywood film, Soorma is also competing against the massively successful and incidentally another biopic Sanju. Sanju, starring Ranbir Kapoor and directed by Rajkumar Hirani, released in the last week of June and is still running to packed theaters. Sanju’s earnings stand at a whopping Rs. 316.64 cr, as per trade analyst Taran Adarsh; highest of all time.
Directed by Shaad Ali, Soorma also stars actors like Tapsee Pannu, Angad Bedi, Siddharth Shukla, Satish Kaushik, Seema Kaushal, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Pitobash, and Vijay Raaz.
