Box office collection: Sonchiriya off to a poor start on opening day

Sushant Singh Rajput and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Sonchiriya was much hyped because of the content of the film. However, it seems like what has caught the viewers eyes is the same day release film Luka Chuppi. Sonchiriya had a very poor opening day unexpectedly. The movie is being screened at 940 screens worldwide and the India nett of Sonchiriya is 0.9 crore which is extremely low, and the film's worldwide nett is mere 1.2 crores. But Sonchiriya is showing an upward trend over the weekend. Directed by Abhishek Chaubey, Sonchiriya is a set in the dacoit era of India, mainly focused on the Chambal region.
