New Delhi: The much-anticipated Punjabi film ‘Carry On Jatta 3’ is creating a storm at the box office. The Gippy Grewal and Sonam Bajwa starrer has collected an impressive Rs. 4.20 crores in the domestic market alone. Industry tracker Sacnilk shared the box office collection of ‘Carry On Jatta 3’. While it was no surprise that the third sequel of this comedy film will do great business, with the recent run of sequels at box office, the numbers are surely impressive. Meanwhile, the big Bollywood film ‘Satyaprem Ki Katha’ starring Kiara Advani and Kartik Aaryan collected Rs. 9 crores on its opening day.
As per Sacnilk, ‘Carry On Jatta 3’ s overall occupancy in Punjab was at 57.36% with evening and night shows being around 71.90 % and 71.15% respectively.
‘Carry On Jatta’ team left no stone unturned to keep the buzz around the film high. From Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan launching the trailer to the cast appearing on ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’, a lot of expectation was riding high on the film’s performance.
Aamir Khan had even shared during the trailer launch, “For me, if the story is good, I’d do it. If it is in a different language and if I love it, then I’ll learn the language and do it.”
“Stars back then, like Yusuf sahab (Dilip Kumar) , his first language was Punjabi. Raj Kapoor too spoke in Punjabi, so it was natural for them to do Punjabi films. For us it would be a little bit of effort. For example, Punjabi is not my first language, but I would love to do it, “ he added.
For those unaware, Gippy Grewal had even helped the makers of ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ with the Punjabi dialect in the dialogues. The Punjabi superstar had even told DNA that the makers had asked to reA-dub the dialogues but the suggestion was not taken.
Meanwhile, Kavita Kaushal, Gurpreet Ghuggi, Jaswinder Bhalla, Binnu Dhillon and other Punjabi film regulars are also part of ‘Carry On Jatta 3’.
