Udta Punjab box office collections have not really set any records through its run since its release but it has managed to do one notable thing and that is climb into the top 10 list under the ‘Adult’ movie rating tag.
The ‘Adult’ tag itself hardly applied to this Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh movie, except for the content related to rampant drug abuse in Punjab, but having been bracketed under that tag, the movie is willy-nilly being compared with others in that category.
While the topper in the list is Grand Masti, which was a mammoth hit having earned as much as Rs 102 cr, no other movie since then has been able to enter the exclusive Rs 100 cr club under this categorisation.
Following this is the The Dirty Picture which collected as much as Rs 80 crore. A distant third is Raaz 3 with collections of Rs 70.07 cr and it is followed by Wanted at Rs 62 cr.
In the fifth spot is Shootout At Wadala at Rs 60.18 cr. However, while Udta Punjab has come very near it, yet it is unlikely to overtake Wadala and will settle for the sixth place. At the moment, Udta Punjab box office collections are at Rs 54.35 cr.
Just behind Udta Punjab are Delhi Belly at Rs 52 cr and Badlapur at Rs 50.07 cr.
