With an opening weekend collection of Rs 43 crores, Sajid Khan's multi-starrer has opened big even in the IPL season.
Call it Sajid Khan's confidence or arrogance, but his claims that his film Housefull 2 will be a blockbuster hit turned out to be true, like all his past claims. Despite releasing his film at the onset of IPL, Housefull 2 started on a very strong note and ensured houseful boards outside many cinema-halls. The film earned Rs 43 crores over its opening weekend. With this figure, Housefull 2 is the second biggest opening of the year after Agneepath. The multi-starrer managed to draw in audiences in vast numbers thereby assuring good business. What added to its advantage is that there was no other opposition to it at the box-office.
In that respect the film should have another decent week at the box office what with the competition being quite weak in comparison. The coming Friday sees the release of a low-budget Hindi-Marathi bilingual Chhodo Kal Ki Baatein (Kashala Udyachi Baat in Marathi) starring Anupam Kher and Sachin Khedekar in lead roles. The second release is Kumar Mangat'sBittoo Boss where he is trying to re-launch his daughter Amita Pathak after her past few failed attempts. The film introduces Pulkit Samrat as the male lead who starred in TV soaps some years back.
