As expected, Farah Khan directed Happy New Year has broken all previous records with a whooping first day Box Office collection of Rs 42.62 crores at the domestic market.
The film Happy New Year starring Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani and Vivaan Shah witnessed almost 100 percent occupancy in all corners of the country on the first day of its release (Friday).
Released in around 5000 screens all over India, Happy New Year produced by Red Chillies Entertainments Pvt Ltd, was certainly one of the most awaited Bollywood flicks of this year, thanks to Shahrukh Khan's eight-pack abs, Deepika Padukone's glamour and of course the rigorous promotional activities for the film.
Although, Happy New Year did not receive much positive reviews but the film managed to set a Box Office record on the very first day and for obvious reasons, Shahrukh Khan's Happy New Year's Box Office business is expected to be even better on weekends and the film is likely to cross Rs 100 crores in the first three days itself.
