Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Malhotra’s latest film Badhaai Ho, helmed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, has struck gold at the box-office. Made on a shoestring budget of ₹ 22 crore, including P&A, the family drama raked in ₹ 84.25 crore by the end of its second weekend.
Badhaai Ho rocked up ₹ 3.40 crore on its second Friday, followed by ₹ 6.60 crore on Saturday, and a whopping ₹ Rs 8.15 crore on Sunday, taking its weekend total to ₹ 18.15 crore, which is commendable for a film made on tight investments. After posting a total of ₹ 84.25 crore by the end of its second weekend, the movie is now gearing up fast to enter the coveted club of ₹ 100 crore.
The film is expected to pull in ₹ 100 crore even before entering the third weekend. After clocking ₹ 100 crore, Badhaai Ho will become actor Ayushmann Khurrana’s first film in the much sought-after club. It is his fourth consecutive success after Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017), Shubh Mangal Saavdhan (2017) and Andhadhun (2018).
Badhaai Ho had released alongside the Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor starrer Namaste England on 18th October. While the former has hit the jackpot at the ticket window, the latter could not scare up any moolah at the cash counter and has been ousted from all theatres across India.
Besides Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Malhotra, Badhaai Ho also stars Neena Gupta, Surekha Sikri and Gajraj Rao in prominent roles.
