Sui Dhaaga Had a good start in UAE as it grossed in the $180k range which is better than the numbers of Badrinath Ki Dulhania at $170k.
It is the fourth best opening for a Varun Dhawan starrer but the other films which are better than Sui Dhaaga - made in India were in the action / comedy genre which open better. Dilwale, Dishooma nd Judwaa 2 opened better than Sui Dhaaga. Badrinath Ki Dulhania had the support of hit songs so its a good result to open better than that film.
The opening is also the fifth best of 2018 in UAE only behind Race 3, Padmaavat, Sanju and Baaghi 2 and these films are the big films of the year so far. It has beaten the likes of Pad Man, Gold and Raid and also another content film like Raazi. The top openings days in Gulf are as follows. (Note some films had a Thursday release while others were on Friday).
- Race 3
- Baaghi 2
- Sui Dhaaga - Made In india
- Pad Man
- Veere Di Wedding
