Udta Punjab is getting wide release across all parts of India. Film has managed to create huge buzz because of Censor controversy and hence exhibitors are giving it big release.
Udta Punjab has managed to get around 2400-2500 screens in India. This is big. Generally film would have got 1600-1700 screens but because of censor controversy film has managed atleast 700-800 screens more.
It means Housefull 3 screening is reduce heavily now. Housefull 3 has managed around 450 screens for 3rd week. Yes, there is still potential but collection will be in lower level now. Rest of the screening is shared between new released Hindi, Regional and Hollywood films.
Udta Punjab should take decent start as there is lot of curiosity riding on the film. However whether film can hold on Saturday and more specifically on Monday will determine whether it can emerge as success.
