Sonakshi Sinha, Diana Penty, and Jimmy Sheirgill starrer comedy film Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi managed a decent total on its first Monday. The film opened at Rs 2.70 crore but picked up its pace during the weekend to cross 10 crores mark in the first weekend. It is facing tough competition at the box office from Akshay Kumar’s Gold and John Abraham’s Satyameva Jayate. As per the box office reports, the film earned 2.05 crores on first Monday to take its total domestic box office collection to 13.83 crores after 4 days. The film is looking for 15+ crores in the first week. It will have two new competitors, Stree and Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se, in its second week. So, a steady collection in the remaining 3 days of the first week will give some life to the movie.

The film’s opening collection was mediocre but the weekend collections looked like they were in the film’s favor. It is yet to be seen if the film will continue the pace it has set for the rest of the week.

Friday (Day 1): ₹ 2.70 cr
Saturday (Day 2): ₹ 4.03 cr
Sunday (Day 3): ₹ 5.05 cr
Monday (Day 4): ₹ 2.05 cr
Total: ₹ 13.83 cr
