Despite several states shutting down cinemas due to surging COVID-19 cases in the country, Bollywood superstar Ranveer Singh-starrer 83 continues to attract audiences to theatres. The sports drama film has managed to cross the Rs 100 crore mark at the domestic box office in its third week of release.

83 Hits Century at Box Office

83 collected Rs 1.47 crore at the domestic box office on Sunday and entered the prestigious Rs 100 crore club. Box office analyst Taran Adarsh has stated that ideally, the film should have crossed the Rs 100 crore mark by its second weekend itself which fell during the Christmas and New Year holidays. He added that the film not being accepted by non-metro audiences proved to be a roadblock for the film's success at the box office.

"#83TheFilm hits cr… Ideally, the film should've hit century by Weekend 2 itself [#Christmas + #NewYear holidays], but the non-acceptance beyond metros proved a roadblock… [Week 3] Fri 80 lacs, Sat 1.29 cr, Sun 1.47 cr. Total: ? 100.56 cr. #India biz. ALL VERSIONS," wrote Adarsh on Twitter.
