Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, starring Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan and Kajol recorded an impressive first weekend as it released alongside Deepika Padukone starrer Chhapaak last Friday.

Both films have created quite a buzz on social media platforms. The social-drama film has performed below expectation in its first-four days. Helmed by Raazi-famed director Meghna Gulzar, Chhapaak, has minted Rs 19.02 crore in its opening weekend.

Sharing the box office figures of the film, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, “Tanhaji is unstoppable on Day 4… Collects in double digits, despite lower ticket rates at multiplexes on weekdays… Day 4 numbers are better than Day 1 at several centres… Fri 15.10 cr, Sat 20.57 cr, Sun 26.26 cr, Mon 13.75 cr. Total: ₹ 75.68 cr. #India biz.”

Meanwhile, Taran Adarsh also shared the box office collection of Deepika Padukon’s Chhapaak. He wrote on Twitter, “Chhapaak slips on Day 4… Biz is limited to a few premium multiplexes of urban centres… Continues to non-perform at Tier-2 and 3 cities and also mass belt… Fri 4.77 cr, Sat 6.90 cr, Sun 7.35 cr, Mon 2.35 cr. Total: ₹ 21.37 cr. India biz.”
