Fukrey Returns which is a sequel to 2013’s sleeper hit film, Fukrey has successfully secured its place at the box office. This Richa Chadha, Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma, Manjot Singh and Ali Fazal starrer flick has entered its second week and it is running steadily at the box office. Fukrey Returns was made on a decent budget of 22 crores (including P&A).
In the opening weekend, Mrighdeep Singh Lamba’s directorial recorded outstanding occupancy and did the business of 32.20 crores, that included 8.10 crores of Friday, 11.30 crores of Saturday and 12.80 crores of Sunday. Then in weekdays as well, it reported good business and minted the amount of 5.10 crores on Monday, 5.05 crores of Tuesday, 4.30 crores of Wednesday and 3.90 crores of Thursday.
After a week, total collection of the movie was recorded as 50.55 crores. Now Fukrey Returns is running in second weekend and getting higher response than other new arrivals. On 2nd Friday with 9% of drop than previous day, it raked the business of 3.31 crores. While on 2nd Saturday, the movie showed good growth and collected 4.75 crores. After 9 days, total collection of Fukrey Returns has become 58.61 crores at domestic box office.
With this, it has surpassed the lifetime total of Arjun Kapoor’s Mubarakan (55.59 crores) and emerged as 14th highest grossing movie of the year so far. In fact the other three films in the radar for Fukrey Returns would be Jab Harry Met Sejal [64.50 crore], Secret Superstar [63.50 crore] and Half Girlfriend [60.30 crore].
What has to be seen is whether this Mrighdeep Singh Lamba directed film sees much bigger jumps during this weekend to challenge even the Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan starrer. If that happens, it would be indeed a huge feat for this small film from Excel to take on much bigger films and that too in just 10 days.
