Udta Punjab has performed reasonably well. After a very good opening weekend, the journey on weekdays had some drops. The biggest challenge for Udta Punjab was to beat R. Rajkumar which is the highest grosser of Shahid Kapoor. However the trend is not favouring UP.
Though both films are completely different. R. Rajkumar did very well at mass centers maintained the pace in the second week. Udta Punjab had some other factors going in its favour like the controversy and the presence of Diljit Dosanjh.
Udta Punjab has beaten R. Rajkumar in the first week with a slight lead. However it will be tough to cross R. Rajkumar's lifetime collection.
