There is no stopping actor Akshay Kumar at the box office. After successes like Kesari and Mission Mangal this year, looks like Housefull 4 is also headed in the same direction. According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film has made Rs 30 crores on Monday.
Giving a box office update on Tuesday, he wrote: “#BOUpdate: It was a BIGGG day [Mon], the national holiday... #HouseFull4 #HF4 packed a whopping number [₹ 30 cr+]... #SaandKiAankh showed massive gains... #MadeInChina saw enhanced footfalls... #Tamil film #Bigil is unstoppable in TN.” He also mentioned that Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar’s Saand Ki Aankh also showed growth and so did Rajkummar Rao’s Made In China. Vijay starrer Bigil surges ahead in Tamil Nadu.
An earlier report in Box Office India had estimated that the film could have made Rs 31-32 crores on Monday, after a dull Sunday. However, collectively, the first weekend figures worked well for the film. As per another report on the same web site on Friday, the film had made Rs 50 crores in its first weekend. The comedy had earned Rs 12.5-13 crore on Sunday.
It made Rs 18.81 crore on Saturday, taking the total to Rs 37.89 crore in two days. The film has a grand opening of Rs 19.08 crore on Friday.
Tweeting about the figures, trade analyst Taran Adarsh had spoken about the film’s two days’ business: “HouseFull4 is steady on Day 2... Saw gains in some circuits, was down in few... Biz on Mon is pivotal when Diwali holidays begin... Tue-Thu biz is crucial, if it has to post a solid total... Fri 19.08 cr, Sat 18.81 cr. Total: Rs 37.89 cr. India biz. HF4.”
