Alankrita Shrivastava's latest release 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' which is happened to be one of the most anticipated movies of the year, has hit the screens with a much slow opening on Friday. After a disappointing collection of Rs 1.22 cr on the first day of its release, the Konkona Sen Sharma starrer has witnessed an outstanding growth of 80% on the second day collecting a total of Rs. 2.17 crore on Saturday. The movie mints a fare amount of Rs 5.80 crore within three days and further stays strong at box office on the 4th day of its release.
The movie which talks about women empowerment in the patriarchal society, has got rave reviews from the critics. 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' which was touted to be 'too lady-oriented' had its share of controversies which included a stay on its release too.
However, after a prolonged battle with CBFC, the movie has come up with a fresh new plot which is driving a large number of people towards theatres all over the country.
Though 'Lipstick Under My Burkha' failed to fetch in the expected box office numbers on the first day of its release, the non-commercial movie has also been immensely praised by the audience which is also a bit rare for a movie of such genre.
Sharing the weekend collection of the movie famous trade analyst Taran Adarsh on Monday took to micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, "#LipstickUnderMyBurkha Fri 1.22 cr, Sat 2.17 cr, Sun 2.41 cr. Total: ₹ 5.80 cr [400 screens]. India biz.” Earlier, the analyst has also shared the first and second day collection of the movie.
