Sajid-Farhad directorial comedy film Housefull 3 has stormed the Indian box office with some mind blowing numbers that came in after the end of its first weekend. Housefull 3 first weekend collections reached to Rs 53.31 crore which means it becomes highest first weekend grosser of 2016.
This third installment of hit multistarrer franchise films includes Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Abhishek Bachchan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon in the main leads. With more than 3700 screens count across the domestic market, Housefull 3 took a very good start on Friday, when it collected Rs 15.21 crore, that is also the second biggest opener of 2016 after Fan ( Rs 19.20 crore).
With the immense amount of hype created by the word of mouth by the audience and the fantastic previous record of this franchise, Saturday shown even commendable growth with Rs 16.30 crore came in, that is really outstanding numbers on day two.

Sunday was a big holiday and people rushed towards the theaters in good numbers which results that 3rd day was the biggest day for Housefull 3 and it fetched Rs 21.80 crore.
So, in just three days of its run, Housefull 3 takes biggest jump at the box office record books and becomes highest first weekend grosser of 2016 surpassing SRK’s Fan (Rs 52.35 crore). This is the 2nd film of Akshay after Airlift (Rs 44.30) to enter this list of highest first weekend grosser of 2016.
Now, after this ideal start, it is interesting to see how Housefull 3 gets going in the weekdays. We hope, it would not follow the footsteps of Fan, which after a mind blowing opening, saw a drastic fall out in weekdays and finally failed to make a mark at the box office.
