After opening to promising numbers on its first day, Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday starrer Pati Patni Aur Woh saw a strong weekend collection. The film which collected Rs 9.10 crore on Friday witnessed a consistent growth in the next two days. Mudassar Aziz directorial collected Rs 12.33 crore on Saturday and Rs 14.51 crore on Sunday putting the total weekend collection at Rs 35.95 crore.
Film trade analyst and critic Taran Adarsh shared the business figures on his Twitter account and informed that Pati Patni Aur Woh has become Aaryan’s biggest three day opener leaving behind Luka Chuppi that had a weekend collection of Rs 32.13 crore. The film had already become his biggest opener on 6 December when it was released. The film should register good numbers on weekdays in order to have a good final collection.
#PatiPatniAurWoh has a solid weekend… Day-wise growth – despite division of screen space [#Panipat] – is a plus and should ensure strong biz on weekdays… #KartikAaryan’s biggest 3-day opener… Fri 9.10 cr, Sat 12.33 cr, Sun 14.51 cr. Total: ₹ 35.94 cr. #India biz.

On the other hand, Ashutosh Gowariker’s magnum opus Panipat, which was also released on 6 December, witnessed a poor weekend. The film did see a growth in its business during the weekend but it did not make much difference as the business on the first day was too low. According to a report on Box Office India, the film which stars Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Kriti Sanon collected Rs 4 crore on Friday and Rs 6 crore on Saturday. The historical drama went on to collect Rs 7.50 crore on Sunday putting the total collection of three days at Rs 17.50 crore.
The film has done better in Mumbai circuit and Nizam/Andhra with Mumbai collecting around Rs 8 crore and Nizam/Andhra collecting a little less than Rs 1.50 crore. It needs to pick up on weekdays to have a respectable lifetime collection.
