Peepli Live grosses Rs 230 million at box office

MUMBAI: Peepli Live has grossed Rs 230 million at the box office, according to data provided by UTV Motion Pictures till Tuesday evening.

In India, the film grossed Rs 205 million from 750 screens while the remaining portion came from overseas markets across 100 screens.

With 64 prints in the US, the film has collected $364000 in the opening weekend, which is higher than many mainstream commercial films with a big cast, UTV said.

Meanwhile, in the Middle East the film released during Ramzaan and has opened at $175,000 on 18 prints. In Australia, Peepli Live ranked 4th in the Limited release Australian box office and has collected 47900 Australian dollars on six screens. 

From countries like South Africa, Pakistan, Singapore, Benelux, Kenya and others, the total contribution was to the tune of $59,000 in the opening weekend.

The movie was released on 13 August. Said UTV Motion Pictures CEO Siddharth Roy Kapur, “It’s great to witness what would usually be considered a ‘a small’ film like Peepli Live, receive such a tremendous response from audiences in India and overseas. The film has set a benchmark for the highest opening ever for a non-cast film. The complete support and involvement from Aamir at every stage of the process, has helped the marketing and distribution team at UTV to rewrite the definition of what constitutes commercially viable cinema. We look forward to making Peepli Live the ‘biggest small film’ in the history of Indian cinema.”

Peepli Live, co-produced by Aamir Khan Productions and UTV Motion Pictures and directed by Anusha Rizvi, follows the mayhem that results on account of a farmer threatening to commit sucide.
