M S Dhoni – The Untold Story, is still going strong on the silver screens in its collections and has earned a total of Rs 74.51 crore after passing the “Monday test” with a ease. The movie after its theatrical release on Friday collected Rs 66 crores in its opening weekend.
Though the film, which collected Rs 21.30 crore on Friday, Rs 20.60 crore on Saturday and Rs 24.10 crore on Sunday saw a massive drip on Monday, as it collected only Rs 8.51 crore, still the film is strong in its collection. It features just three film old actor Sushant playing MS Dhoni.
The Neeraj Pandey film, based on the life of India’s limited overs cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, has already made a few box office records. Besides having the second highest opening day box office collection of the year, it also has the second highest opening weekend of 2016.
