Bollywood movie Shaadi Ke Side Effects (SKSE) has got good opening and registered decent collection at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. The Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan starrer has topped the domestic business chart, pushing last week's release Highway and Gunday down to the second and third places respectively. But it has failed to break the opening weekend record of Farhan's last release Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
Riding on the huge hype and expectations, Shaadi Ke Side Effects opened to a superb response at the multiplexes in metros. But when compared to plexes, the movie registered low amount of occupancy in the single screens. The Saket Chaudhary-directed flick witnessed big leaps in its business on Saturday and Sunday in plexes, but its collection remained almost the same in single screens over the weekend.
Shaadi Ke Side Effects has collected Rs 21.26 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 5.70 cr on Fri, Rs 7.55 cr on Sat and Rs 8.01 cr on Sun. The movie, which has been made on a budget of Rs 20+ crores, has recovered its production cost in three days.
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag happens to be the biggest opener and highest grosser in the first weekend for Farhan Akhtar. The movie had collected Rs 32.35 crores nett (Rs 1.05 cr in Thu preview, Rs 8.50 cr in Fri, Rs 11 cr in Sat, Rs 12.80 cr in Sun) at the Indian Box Office in its opening weekend. Farhan's latest outing Shaadi Ke Side Effects was expected to break this record, but it has failed to do so.
