Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania which was released yesterday saw a very good response. The film was released on 1500 screens. The first day collection at the box office is just beyond imagination for a Varun Dhawan film.
The box office collections on the first day for the film Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania was Rs 9.02 crores nett. This collection for Varun Dhawan's film is the best as his Main Tera Hero was only Rs 6.60 crores on the opening day.
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania though has received mixed reviews, it is not very bad. The morning shows saw only a less number of occupancy in the theatres while the evening show picked up.
The film was the single release with no competitor. This light hearted rom-com brought together Alia and Varun again after their Student of the Year.
Siddharth Shukla of Balika Vadu fame also debuted into Bollywood with this film. Directed by Shashank Khaitan and produced by Karan Johar, the film is highly inspired by Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge.
If only the first day collection is so much, we can expect this Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania to foray into the 100 crore club.
