The collection of the film halted in the third week because of Tiger Zinda Hai, otherwise, it would have crossed 100 crores in its lifetime. As TZH’s juggernaut will continue at the box office, Fukrey Returns can add another 3-4 crore before leaving the theaters. So, the lifetime collection may settle at 80-81 crores. The venture is produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. It also happens to be the sequel to 2013 runaway film ‘Fukrey’.
