The film was made on a budget of Rs 55 Crore and Rs 20 Crore was spent on the promotions. So having been made on a total budget of Rs 75 crores, the film is said to easily recover this amount over this long four days weekend.
Alia Bhatt and Shahid Kapoor, the lead actors of the movie have promoted the film extensively over the last month and their hardwork has paid off, for the movie ran in packed houses during the noon and evening shows.
Shaandaar Movie Review By Filmibeat
Opening day, Thursday being a Dussehra holiday nationwide has worked in the favour of the makers. Taran Adarsh, trade expert reported that the film grossed Rs 13.10 crores on Thursday.
But the negative reviews from the critics and the viewers affected the film badly on the second day and the collections took a huge dip grossing just Rs 7.55 crores on second day, Friday!
This brought the two days total to Rs 20.65 crores which is far less than expected! Hopefully the film does better on Saturday and makes up for the loss.

It's interval n undoubtedly #Shaandaar is a greatest chutiyapa of 2015. It's Bangistan part2 with great acting of cartoons.

Just Saw #Shaandaar .Tbh This movie is made for kids. 1st Half Ghanta samaj ni aata.! 2nd half mai toh mai so gaya. Overall Boring movie
Incoherent and haphazard, #Shaandaar plot is an epic fail. Vikas Bahl seems to clearly have lost his Midas touch.
