Kareena Kapoor-Sonam Kapoor-Swara Bhasker-Shikha Talsania starrer buddy comedy-drama is still going strong in the box office. After a very strong opening day and weekend, Veere Di Wedding performed well on the first weekday as well. While Veere Di Wedding's content has been called bold and has been critiqued by many for the same, it continues to attract its fair share of audience. This proves that there will always be takers for feel-good movies and women-centric ones. Not only in India, Veere Di Wedding has also done well abroad as well, where, as mentioned by Taran Adarsh, Indian films with an abundance of cuss words and with adult content do not do well. But Veere Di Wedding debuted on the top 10 charts in Australia, New Zealand and UK. At home, Veere Di Wedding continued its strong run with a collection of Rs 6.04 crore on Monday.
