Movie critic and trade analyst, Taran Adarsh has tweeter the figures.

Adarsh stated that the movie is all set to reach Rs 200 crore mark in the coming days. Presently, total gross collections stand at Rs 189.76 crores. “Week 1: Rs 71.26 crore Week 2: Rs 62.77 crore; Week 3: Rs 37.06 crore; Weekend 4: Rs 18.67 crore,” he added in a tweet.

Earlier it was reported that Uri had outshone the top three movies of 2018 - Sanju, Padmaavat and Simmba - in the second-week collections metric. While the ticket sales of the three films declined by more than half in the second week, Uri witnessed a decline of only around 12 per cent.

The movie

The movie, starring Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal and Yami Gautam in lead roles, chronicles the events of the surgical strike conducted by the Indian armed forces against the militants in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).

The movie, made at a relatively small budget of Rs 45 crores, also recently became 2019’s first Bollywood blockbuster to earn over Rs 100 crores at the box office.
