Housefull 4 gets second highest comedy opening ever on Box Office
New Delhi : Akshay Kumar's latest movie Housefull 4 released in theatres on pre-Diwali weekend, and it seems to have gained the mileage with a grand opening on the Box Office. The film turned out to be the second highest opener in comedy genre ever.
According to a report on Box Office India, Housefull 4 opened with around Rs 19 crore, which is the second biggest comedy debut of all time after Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again. That film had opened to Rs 30 crore around the same Diwali window in 2017.
Housefull 4 also stars Kriti Sanon, Bobby Deol, Riteish Deshmukh, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde. It also happens to be the biggest opener in Housedfull franchise. Housefull 3 had opened at Rs 15 crores in 2016.
The other two films released with Housefull 4 are Bhumi Pednekar and Taapsee Pannu’s Saand Ki Aankh and Rajkummar Rao and Mouni Roy’s Made In China. Both the movies appeared to be struggling on the Box Office.
While Made In China bagged just Rs 1 crore, Saand Ki Aankh could manage only Rs 50 lakhs on the opening day collections on the Box Office.
Talking about the screen counts of the three films, trade analyst Girish had earlier said that Housefull 4 would be released in around 3,500 screens whereas Made in China and Saand Ki Aankh had around 1500 and 1000 screens each. “Housefull 4 will surely lead at the box office while the other two can bank upon the word of mouth. But eventually the better film among them will lead in the days to come,” he had said.
