Diana Penty, Jimmy Shergill, Abhay Deol and Ali Fazal starrer Happy Bhag Jayegi, which had been made with the budget of around 18 crores, has done a business of Rs 10.71 crores on its opening weekend, which is just above the expectations.
Happy Bhag Jayegi has been produced by Anand L. Rai and Krishika Lulla, who previously collaborated in successful films like Tanu Weds Manu (2011) and its sequel Tanu Weds Manu Returns (2015).
The film had started off on the positive note with overwhelming reviews from the critics. It had collected Rs 2.32 crores on the first day, which was reckoned as below average start at the box office.
But, the film had shown a tremendous response on Saturday as it was a partial weekend holiday. That’s why on Saturday, Rs 3.81 crores came in. It seems that the family audience, especially of North circuits have so much liked it that the occupancies had gone to even 50 % in some of the regions.
Sunday was the best day for Happy Bhag Jayegi and with mind-blowing growth, it had collected Rs 4.58 crores.
Despite its limited release with around 1500 screens across the country, this out of the box figures from box office would push the multiplexes owners to increase the number of screens as it will further rise in coming days.
Although the film has a faceoff with Akshay Kumar’s Rustom, which is still going really well after its second weekend but then also, Happy Bhag Jayegi remains the second best option for the movie goers overpowered Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro.
Now, it is interesting to see how it will perform in the coming weekdays. One thing for sure that Happy Bhag Jayegi would definitely recover its making cost during this week.
