The weekend took the film's earnings at home and abroad to a little over Rs 100 crores. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted:

Piku stars Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan in a slice-of-life story set in Delhi's Chittaranjan Park and Kolkata. On Facebook, Mr Bachchan exulted:
The hurrahs may need not die down any time soon. Zoya Akhtar's star-packed Dil Dhadakne Do releases in June and Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan in July. The last quarter of 2015 is positively bursting at the seams with high-profile films - October has Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's Jazbaa, Salman returns with Prem Ratan Dhan Payo in November which also has Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor starring in Tamasha, and December brings with it Deepika (again) in Bajirao Mastani which also stars Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra. Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol star in Dilwale which releases on Christmas, hopefully ending 2015 with an Aamir-like bang.
