Shah Rukh Khan may be down (with fever), but there's nothing stopping the Happy New Year juggernaut. King Khan's latest film is rewriting Bollywood history, and leaving competition way behind.
The Farah Khan-helmed film has broken all opening day collection records: It touched a whopping Rs 108.86 crore over the first weekend on domestic ticket windows, the fastest for any film to enter the Rs 100-crore club.
There's more. Happy New Year collected Rs 104.10 crore in Hindi, while the Telugu and Tamil dubbed versions earned another Rs 2.92 crore and Rs 1.84 crore respectively.
Reacting to the box office report, Gaurav Verma, Chief Revenue Officer RCE said, "We are thankful to all our partners, exhibitors and especially YRF for helping us achieve this significant milestone."
