Rakshit Shetty's latest production venture 777 Charlie continues to make steady progress at the box office as the second weekend proves to be a successful one. According to the latest trade reports, the film closed the first week (Thursday, June 16) at Rs. 38.75 crores (nett) across the country with the forthcoming weekend, Days 8, 9, and 10, set for further progress. And just as hoped, 777 Charlie has earned close to Rs. 20 crores over the weekend in terms of nett collections.
The same trade reports reveal that the Kannada version continues to be the biggest contributor in terms of collections with the Hindi dubbed release being the second-best for the pan-India release. The first Monday of the theatrical run saw a significant drop in ticket sales and the dip was sustained through the week until the weekend #2 came calling. The collections saw a whopping 97.1% rise on Day 9 (Saturday) with Sunday seeing an even better turnout in terms of sales. Day 10 earned Rs. 8.3 crores for 777 Charlie in terms of nett collections, thus closing the second weekend at Rs. 57.3 crores.
The trade estimates now suggest that film is well on course to collect Rs. 3 crores (approx.) on the second Monday or Day 11, thus likely taking the film over the Rs. 60 crore mark in terms of nett collections. The Kiranraj K directorial has hugely benefitted from the consistent positive word-of-mouth publicity throughout its theatrical run.
In other recent developments, the Basavaraj Bommai-led administration in Karnataka declared 777 Charlie tax-free following a recent private screening. Citing the film's inherent message about the ill effects of animal inbreeding as "significant", the film has been exempted from SGST (State general or service tax) across Karnataka for a period of six months, starting June 19. C.M. Basavaraj Bommai was seen shedding tears after watching the movie for the first time and went on to share that it reminded him of his own pet pal Sunny, whom he, unfortunately, lost only weeks before taking on the Chief Minister's role.
