'paan singh tTomar' earns Rs.4.25 crore over weekend

Filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia's biopic "Paan Singh Tomar", which has been receiving rave reviews from all quarters, has had a decent start in its opening weekend with earnings amounting to Rs.4.25 crore.

Made at a meagre budget of Rs.4.5 crore, the film witnessed a slow start as it earned only Rs.85 lakh Friday. However, the response improved over Saturday and Sunday with collections of Rs.1.4 crore and Rs.2 crore, respectively, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

Starring Irrfan in the lead, the film tracks the real-life story of national level athlete Paan Singh Tomar, who went on to become one of the most dreaded dacoits of Chambal Valley.

It is being distributed by UTV Motion Pictures and UTV Spotboy Motion Pictures.

"As a studio that believes in creating cinema with a difference, it is extremely gratifying to see the response to 'Paan Singh Tomar'. The weekend figures are a perfect example of how a content driven film can be optimally built through a focused marketing and distribution campaign, coupled with great reviews and positive word-of-mouth," Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO, UTV Motion Pictures told IANS.

"We are incredibly proud of Irrfan, Tigmanshu and the entire team of 'Paan Singh Tomar' for creating a movie that is sure to go down in the history of Indian cinema," he added.
