The Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza duo is once again dominating the box office on Day 6 of the Ved box office collection. The Marathi movie Ved, which also serves as Riteish’s directorial debut, is having an unheard-of run at the box office. The movie has been able to keep up a good momentum at the ticket counter. According to reports, the movie has reportedly made a little over Rs 18 Cr in less than a week.
The movie starring Genelia and Riteish had a bad day on Wednesday, but it still managed to draw in its fair share of viewers. Initial trade estimates indicate that the movie made over Rs 2 Cr. The movie’s overall budget now stands at around Rs 18 Cr. The movie has been performing remarkably well. Film trade expert Taran Adarsh shared information about the movie’s box office receipts on Twitter “The Marathi movie Ved keeps on winning. On Day 5, trends are EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD; in fact, Day 5 is HIGHER than Day 1. This one isn’t going anywhere soon… Fri. 2.25, Sat. 3.25, Sun. 4.50, Mon. 3.02, and Tue. 2.65 million. Overall: 15.67 crore.”
In addition, Genelia makes her Marathi cinema debut. Genelia first mentioned that she would be making her Marathi debut with Ved in December of last year. The actress had shared a video along with the message, “Have been lucky to be part of movies in so many different languages and receive love and respect from everyone. My heart has been yearning to make a Marathi movie for years because I was born in Maharashtra, and I was hoping there would be a story where I could just say, “This is it.” And then this happened: I made my debut in a Marathi film, returned to acting after a long hiatus of ten years, and participated in a fantasy in which my spouse Riteish Deshmukh directed for the first time and I had the opportunity to co-star with a stunning woman.
