Director Shoojit Sircar’s October (2018) saw a drop in its box office collections on its first Monday. The film, starring Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu, earned Rs2.50 crore yesterday, as per figures shared by Boxofficeindia.com.

After an average start on Friday with Rs4.50 crore, the film saw a slight jump on Saturday as it made Rs7 crore. The collections on Sunday, a day usually business sees a jump, only reached around Rs7.50 crore. October finished its first weekend with Rs19 crore.

October review: An intimate, emotional journey

The grand total of the film so far is Rs21.50 crore. The collection is much lower than the business of Dhawan's previous films. October is an experimental film aimed at a niche audience. Taking this into consideration, the numbers seem good.

As per trade sources, the film is made at a budget around Rs35 crore. So, it will need to hold well in the remaining weekdays and in the second week to breakeven. A number of films are lined up for release this week. But none of them are big, which could work in October’s favour.
