Diljit’s second Hindi film, Phillauri fared decently in the theatres while the third one, Welcome to New York was a big flop.

- Udta Punjab – Rs. 10.05 crores
- Phillauri – Rs. 4.02 crores
- Welcome to New York – Rs. 0.60 crores
First Day Collection Early Estimates
Soorma has taken a low opening and it is expected to take a jump in the afternoon as well as evening shows. Soorma first day collection depends on how much growth it would take in the latter half of the day. One thing which has become clear from the last few sports biopic is that these types of films succeed on the basis of the personality of the sportsman on which the movie is based.
Soorma opening day is expected to remain around in the range Rs. 3-4 crores as there are other films too who would present a stiff competition to the film. Also, earning of the film would highly depend on the kind of response Soorma receive as the day progresses. Soorma would get a major response from the North India region only.
