‘Housefull 2’ earns Rs 100 crore in less than 3 weeks

After enjoying the year’s second biggest opening, Sajid Khan’s mad-cap comedy venture has gone past the coveted Rs 100 crore mark in less than 20 days

Critics hated it and those with taste for meaningful cinema abhorred it. But if we go by the numbers then Sajid Khan’s star- studded comedy flick, Housefull 2 has turned out to be a success, monetarily speaking!

Sajid Nadiadwala’s production had opened to an unprecedented Rs 42 crore in its first weekend itself. And now the film has gone on to cross the much-coveted 100 crore mark and has become the second biggest film of 2012 after Agneepath.

When the biggest filmmakers with their ambitious venture are uncertain of releasing their film in the season that is ruled by IPL matches, Sajid Khan dared to release Housefull 2. And the gamble clearly paid off. The film did not face any competition at the box office as no other big film released alongside this movie. Housefull 2 got a remarkably fabulous response and one of the biggest openings in Delhi, UP and North Punjab.
