Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Malhotra’s Badhaai Ho is just unstoppable at the box office. Despite facing competition from many new and old releases, the film has been continuously moving upward since its opening day.
As per the box office reports, the film earned 12.50 crore on Saturday to take its total domestic box office collection to 31.46 crore after 3 days. The Sunday collection is expected to be in double-digit too, which means the film will surpass 45 crore in the very first week.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted Badhaai Ho’s box office numbers. “BadhaaiHo is UNSTOPPABLE… Hits double digits yet again on Day 3 [Sat]… Thu 7.29 cr, Fri 11.67 cr, Sat 12.50 cr. Total: ₹ 31.46 cr. India biz… Eyes Rs 45 cr [+/-] extended weekend, which is PHENOMENAL”, he wrote.
Badhaai Ho is shaping up to be a personal record of sorts for Ayushmann. His other release this month, Andhadhun, also opened to good reviews and picked up pace after an average start. While the film earned Rs 15 crore in its first weekend, Badhaai Ho’s collection is almost the double of that.
The box office collection of Badhaai Ho is as follows:
Thursday (Day 1): ₹ 7.29 cr
Friday (Day 2): ₹ 11.67 cr
Saturday (Day 3): ₹ 12.50 cr
Total: ₹ 31.46 cr HIT
Another release Namaste England is now out of favor with moviegoers as its collection dropped on Saturday. The film earned about 1.40 crore on Saturday to take its total domestic box office collection to 5.20 crore after 3 days. The film is heading towards 6.5-7 crore in its first week and therefore the lifetime collection might not cross 12 crore.
The box office collection of Namaste England is as follows:
Thursday (Day 1): ₹ 1.65 cr
Friday (Day 2): ₹ 2.15 cr
Saturday (Day 3): ₹ 1.40 cr
Total: ₹ 5.20 cr Disaster
