Box office collection: Sajid Khan’s Humshakals becomes the fourth biggest opener, rakes in Rs 40.13 crore!

Humshakals may have failed to impress the critics but the film has certainly managed to pull in crowds to the theatres. Well, that’s the only reason wethinks this Saif-Riteish starrer has got registers jingling…

Sajid Khan’s latest comic caper Humshakals starring Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Ram Kapoor, Tamannaah Bhatia, Esha Gupta and Bipasha Basu has literally created hungama at the box office. The film released on Friday (20 June) and though most of the critics thrashed Sajid’s comic venture, it hasn’t really it affected its box office collection. On day 1, Humshakals witnessed a good opening and ended up grossing Rs 12. 50 crore nett. Saturday collections were no different as the multi-starrer collected Rs 12. 59 crore nett. Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh posted on Twitter, “#Humshakals Fri 12.50 cr, Sat 12.59 cr. Total: ₹ 25.09 cr nett. India biz.” While Sajid Khan’s comic venture fared well on the first two days, on Sunday the collections were even better as the numbers went up quite unexpectedly. On day 3 Humshakals raked in Rs 15.04 crore nett bringing its three day total to Rs 40.13 crore. Interestingly, this is the fourth biggest weekend opening this year after Jai Ho, Gunday and Holiday: A Solider Is Never Off Duty.

According to Boxofficeindia, “The collections for the weekend are decent and the trend is good with Sunday showing solid growth all over. The collections were up 25 percent on Sunday. The figures are slightly lower than Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty due to single screens where Akshay Kumar has that initial draw. But in Mysore Humshakals has collected more than Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty.”

Well, the way Sajid’s film has done so far is super impressive coz this is despite all the negative reviews that the film has garnered. With Humshakals inching towards Rs 50 crore mark, we are pretty sure Sajid Khan will have the last laugh. And who knows maybe his film will enter Rs 100 crore club as well. After all, in Bollywood nothing is predictable, hai na?
