People are enjoying the film, which have a number of funny moments that force them to laugh as much as possible. Directed by Sajid-Farhad, Housefull 3 has also Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon in pivotal roles. Although, like we said in our yesterday’s post that it would be very difficult for it to beat the opening day record of Fan (Rs 19.20 crore) and if fell short by Rs 4 crore.
About the box office records, Housefull 3 becomes second biggest grosser of the year by beating Akshay starrer Airlift (Rs 12.35 crore). For Akshay too, this is his second big money spinner of the year after Airlift. For producer Sajid Nadiadwala, these are pleasing numbers as his last film Baaghi was also opened really well on its first day.
With the way, Housefull 3 takes a massive start despite a non-holiday release, the expectations now automatically much bigger with weekend starts and more and more people would come to watch the flick and it is interesting to see how much it will earn in coming two days. Currently the record of biggest first weekend held with SRK’s Fan (Rs 52.35 crore) and Housefull 3 is definitely has an eye on this record.
