Would you believe if I said Humshakals has got the third biggest opening and has raked in Rs 15.12 crores at box office? Well you have to! Because if Box Office reports are to believed then Sajid Khan's Humshakals has beaten Holiday and 2 States's first day earnings as well.
Saif Ali Khan starrer Humshakals has been repeatedly bashed up by the film critics as a dim-witted and boring film, but all those don't matter if the movie is raking in the moolah. People who have been degrading the movie will have to eat up their words now as the movie is going great guns and the producers of the movie, Vashu Bhagnani and Fox Star Studios are laughing their way to the bank.
Jai Ho ranks at number one spot with Rs 17.75 crores collection on the opening day, second spot is taken over by Gunday which earned Rs 16.12 crores and finally Humshakals having beaten Holiday and 2 States has occupied the third spot by raking in Rs 15.12 crores. The multi starrer had a slow start but picked up well later in the day on 20 June.
Humshakals had already earned Rs 45 crore through non-theatrical revenue streams and is steadily moving towards profit. The film has also surpassed the first day collections of Sajid's last release Himmatwala which had minted Rs 12.1 crore. The negative feedback from critics may affect this movie's business in the coming days and since Holiday is still running successfully in the theatres, it might be facing competition from there as well. For example even though Jai Ho had the biggest opening, Salman‘s film failed miserably at the box office. So no one can predict the fate of the movie anymore.
As of now, Jai Ho tops the list of highest opening weekend grossers with Rs 60.68 crore collections. Gunday is second in the list with Rs 43.93 crore and Holiday takes the third spot with Rs 41.32 crore. It would be interesting to see if Humshakals manages to beat Holiday or Jai Ho's weekend figures.
